A nice video from Translogic on their drive in the electric Delorean from DMC.

The Delorean became famous for its appearance in the Back to the Future movies, where it was used for time travel.

Before that, with the looks of a sportscar, it appealed to the masses as cutting edge technology.  Unfortunately, it was too heavy to handle like a sportscar. But the electric vehicle version now has twice the power of the original Delorean and a prototype is in the making to achieve a 0-100 km/h within 5 seconds.

Wonder if there will be more iconic cars from movies that are getting the EV upgrade they need.
