The DeLorean Returns in 2013 With New Electric Model (But No Time Travel)
Hollywood has been going through a serious nostalgia kick within the past few years with their movies. But to see an actual car company revamp a classic car from what easily is one of the most iconic movies of the past thirty years? Now that’s impressive.
While the ‘Back to the Future’ Hoverboard might be years away, pretty soon you can own a brand new DeLorean to call your own.
During the 2012 New York International Auto Show, spectators got a glimpse at what could be the most wanted car next year, but it’s still very familiar to fans of the movie that it originally appeared in.
In 1985, it was already impressive to see them take what was one of the biggest flash-in-the-pan cars of the time and turn it into something truly memorable. Now we’re in 2012 and the new Electric DeLorean has a couple of necessary changes added onto it, the first one clearly obvious from the title.
Mashable Tech reports that the Electric DeLorean is said to have a 32-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion phosphate battery system. That’s right, this baby doesn’t run on Plutonium anymore. It also has the added on features of an iPhone dock and has Bluetooth capability. And yes, you can still kick it from 0 to 60 in less than six seconds, which means that it can jump to 88 in under ten seconds. It certainly does have the original beat in that regard.
So how much does it cost? Well start saving all of your change, because it costs an estimated $95,000. On top of that, starting in January of 2013, they’ll only be making three a week unless the demand forces them to supply more. Take a glimpse at the spiffy new Electric DeLorean down below.
