David Beckham regrets his actions

David gave his son, Brooklyn, and daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz a lavish wedding gift. It was a 1954 Jaguar that had been converted into an electric car and the vintage piece was worth £400,000. In fact, he himself drove the XK140 to the ceremony and his wife Victoria handed the newlyweds the keys. Their wedding took place at Nicola’s family estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

However, on Victoria’s 48th birthday, David shared a story on his Instagram handle and wrote, “Should have kept this car, it’s soooo good. @lunazdesign, please make me one. Happy birthday mama, @victoriabeckham.”

Clearly, the former British footballer was in the love with the car and a part of him wants the car for himself as well.

Brilliant work by Lunaz

It took 120 people to convert and restore Jaguar XK140 into an electric car at electrification company Lunaz. They did a wonderful job in restoring such an amazing vintage car. Lunaz Founder & CEO David Lorenz said, “In creating this beautiful, electrified Jaguar XK140, we are honoured to bridge the gap between David Beckham’s professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz and his family life.”

It was a perfect gift for Brooklyn and Nicola on their special day. However, maybe Brooklyn can lend the car to David sometimes so that he doesn’t crave to drive it.
