Still, such an expensive wedding brought wedding gifts to match. The parents of the groom did their best to impress with an electric conversion of a classic Jaguar. This is probably just one of the many gifts the Beckhams gave the newlyweds, but it’s the most relevant to our interests. The Daily Mail says that David splashed nearly $500,000 on the vehicle, a 1954 XK140 Jag converted to electric by Lunaz, a specialist in this niche of the market.
Painted a gorgeous baby blue, the Beckhams arrived in the vehicle on the morning after the wedding. Shortly after their arrival at the compound, Brooklyn and his wife Nicola took their new car for a test drive around the block, drawing comparisons to another high-profile wedding: that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who also drove off from the reception in an electrified Jag. The Mail has exclusive photos, and you can check them out at the link in the tweet below.
Without a doubt, $500K is a lot of money, even considering Becks’ wealth. While the report says that he paid for the car, we should note that he also holds stock in Lunaz: last summer, he acquired 10% of the company, impressed by the results he’d seen. Even if he did pay half a million for the converted classic, the kind of media attention the wedding gift is generating right now is unprecedented, most welcome publicity.
