This amazing 1952 Jaguar XK120 is powered by electricity and uses recycled ocean waste inside.
Lunaz presented the latest electromod design, which is nothing but a wonderful Jaguar XK120. The wild cat of the 50s was carefully restored by a British company before the conversion of the electric motor.
The commission’s donor car was Jaguar’s famous 1952 XK120. After completely bare metal restoration in the Lunaz premises in Silverstone, the exterior was painted obsidian blue to order. The work is so meticulous that the chrome and wire wheels on the bumpers, grilles, window frames and mirrors shine as brightly as in 1952.

Inside the cabin is where the magic really takes place. The beautiful Burr Walnut veneer on the dashboard and doors is covered with satin varnish. Similar to modern EV concepts, the classics have been redesigned with new carpets made from restored nylon fishing nets and other parts of the marine plastic used for support materials.
The seats are upholstered in high-quality blue fabric, the frames are made of recycled aluminum. The same fabric was used to make Arthur Slip’s custom-made shoes for the XK120. Finally, Lunaz has integrated a modern infotainment touch screen under analog numbers on the center console with Apple CarPlay connection.
The sports car replaced its 3.4-liter XK engine with Lunaz’s modular electric motor, turning it into a zero-emission vehicle. The company did not share performance indicators or available range of electromods.
Lunaz’s Jaguar XK120 starts at £ 350,000 ($ 423,838) before taxes and the company is accepting orders for commissions. The first model was presented at the Concours on Savile Row in London. Remember, Lunaz also offers EV modifications for other classic models, such as the Aston Martin DB6 and the Bentley S3 Continental Flying Spur.
