David Beckham, one of the most famous ex-football players in the world, invests in the British company Lunaz. It rebuilds historic cars into electric cars, and promises to create five hundred jobs by 2024.
Lunaz “rebuilds the cars of the future with clean air,” according to company founder David Lorenz. “Not only do you have to make new cars, you can take what’s already there, rework it and put it back on the roads like a new car, but … reworked for the future,” he adds.
The company offers, for example, the Rolls-Royce Pnantom V or Silver Cloud from the 1960s. However, the reconstructed machines are no cheaper than modern scrolls – Lonaz the Ghost is estimated at 17 million crowns, and the Silver Cloud at ten. In addition, it offers such as XK120 and XK140 jaguary.

“Lunaz represents the best of British innovation in terms of technology and design. I was drawn to her by her work – restoring beautiful historic cars, recycling and electrifying. David Lorenz and his team are building something special and I look forward to being a part of it,” Autocar quotes David Beckham. The former football player will own 10% of the company.
On this occasion, Lunaz announced the division into three branches. Lunaz Design will continue to rework historic vehicles, Lunaz Applied Technologies will convert vehicles from large fleets, including trucks, and Lunaz Powertrain will provide a boost to its own development for other companies.
