The Electric DeLorean – Plutonium Not Required

They partnered with eCars Now! Italy on the project, they had the batteries made in Korea, then shipped to Germany to be moulded into a shape that would fit inside a DeLorean with precision. The 90kW electric motor can push from 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds and then team estimate that the car will have a range of 125-135 miles, no word yet on whether it will reach 88 miles per hour.
