The restomod based on DMC DeLorean are almost endless and with the arrival of electric engines, some tuners did not spare themselves from creating zero-emission cars based on the historic model that made both the great and the youngest public fall in love with it. In any case, if you are a lover of the brand you will be pleased to know that the DeLorean is returning and will soon hit the market with a new version fully electric. We’ve been waiting for it for a long time and this Hollywood legend will be resurrected in less than a month.
Yesterday, DMC posted a preview of the rear of the new car on Instagram, followed shortly by a countdown that indicates just under 25 days. It is not the first time that small previews of this model have appeared online and the new teaser suggests the presence of a “Ferrari-like” rear, with a full-width rear light and elements in common with the legendary Testarossa. The front, on the other hand, will not follow the lines of the Italian project but will certainly be different and more devoted to the electric propulsion system.
The official launch was originally scheduled for Thursday 18 August at the Awards ramp at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance; but the new timer highlights that we’ll see a digital revelation in late May, followed by a more classic, in-person experience at Pebble Beach. The new DeLorean will not be a mass-produced vehicle: plus a limited run of approximately 50-100 original vehiclesthe new car will also be produced in small quantities and we expect the first batch to run out as soon as it can be ordered.
There are currently no rumors about the power of the propulsion system, but the company has stated that driving the DeLorean will be extremely satisfying for the driver. Previous rumors suggest, however, one maximum battery of 100 kWh and a range of about 450 kilometers The hope is that it can be a real fast electric supercar, capable of excelling in any context; price? Around $ 175,000. To give you a more precise context, the original model was priced at $ 25,000 in 1981, or $ 80,000 today.
