Remember the famous Delorean car from the Back to the Future movie of the 80′s? Well it’s back and it’s going green.
The new custom made Delorean is set to run on electric power yet still retain its high speed and power.
A prototype of the electric DeLorean has been tested on both the street and track over the past three months and its development is continuing. With a 200 hp electric motor, accelerating from 0-60 mph takes less than eight seconds and Anthony hopes for a real-world range of 100 miles between charges. With the battery packs installed both in the front and rear of the car, weight distribution and handling are said to be markedly improved over the original, which had its four-cylinder engine mounted behind the rear wheels.
Expect to see the new electric Delorean sometime in 2013 for about $90,000.
