From football to automotive: David Beckham invests in electric mobility

From football to fashion and beauty, to whiskey, cannabis and everything else in between; life after football for David Beckham has arguably been as rewarding as his long and illustrious career with Manchester United.

The former Real Madrid and LA Galaxy player’s business portfolio has been as vast and colourful as the hairstyles he sported as a footballer and now, the name, the face and the glamour has arrived in our world.

Beckham has recently bought a 10% stake in Lunaz, an English-based company known for their resto-mod conversions of classic vehicles – converting them to run on electric powertrains.

“I was drawn to the company through their work restoring some of the most beautiful classic cars through upcycling and electrification,” Beckham said.

Founded in 2018, the company rose to fame having converted classic Bentley, Rolls-Royce, and Jaguar vehicles to run purely on electric.

Like Rimac, Lunaz plans to expand their business beyond resto-mods. The company not only plans to supply electric-vehicle technology to major automakers but also convert commercial vehicles such as garbage trucks and buses to run on electric powertrains.

According to Lunaz, rather than scrapping these old vehicles and replacing them with electric ones, converting them to run on electricity will not only reduce emissions and pollution but also extend the lifespan of these vehicles by up to 70%.
