Jaguar XK120 with 375 hp electric motor... You can do

When David Lorenz saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle walk away from the wedding reception in an electric Jaguar E-Type, he had an illumination that would prove brilliant. Become the founder of Lunaz and convert some of the best vintage cars in the world by giving them electric propulsion.

An 80 kWh battery pack and a dual engine, producing the equivalent of 375 hp, give the XK an important boost in speed. While the range is 250 miles. Prices start at 435,000 dollars for a Lunaz conversion of the XK.

There is no denying that the original sound of this Jaguar is a spectacle, but even the silence generated by this conversion can be very charming and elegant. Surely purists will cry out to heresy, the mere thought of removing the original 3.4-litre six-cylinder from Sir William Lyons’ perfectly formed XK120 could destroy the most fundamentalist enthusiasts.

However, Lorenz and his team have kept their stunning creation as close to the original. The interior itself is a subtle blend of old and new, with original dials on top of a satellite navigation panel and Bluetooth accessories. Every time we deal with innovation it is always hard to make a judgment but in this case the harmony of classical forms with modern technology leaves no room for doubt. We like it.
