Imagine your typical list of wedding presents: a gravy boat, salt and pepper shakers, a £350k electric restomod. Just useful, everyday stuff for the house, right?
Okay, so Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz probably didn't add a massively expensive Jag to the gift list ahead of their much-publicized wedding last week, but as luck would have it, the father of the groom has deep pockets, and shares in a car company.
Yes, David Beckham — who took a 10 percent stake in British electric restomod firm Lunaz in June 2021 — has pulled some strings and commissioned this fully electric, restored and up-cycled Jaguar XK140.
A team of 120 people spent thousands of hours of work completing the entire project at the company's base in Silverstone. Looks immaculate, doesn't it? As well as installing an electric powertrain, the brakes, suspension and steering have all been updated, while the light cream interior features dials and switches that "faithfully reflect" those of the original while incorporating modern instruments like the battery gauge.
And if you flick through the gallery above, you'll also see there's a special plaque bearing the initials of the newlyweds. "In creating this beautiful, electrified Jaguar XK140, we are honored to bridge the gap between David Beckham's professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz, and his family life," said founder and CEO David Lorenz. "This remarkable car is the perfect gift to his son Brooklyn and daughter-in-law, Nicola, on their wedding day. In every respect, this extraordinary electric classic car by Lunaz symbolizes a bright, positive future."
