Seeing a DeLorean up for sale on eBay isn’t anything new. Every now and then you come across one that tries to pass itself off as a time machine, which is always cool to see. However, it is rare that you find one that features an electric motor.
Someone has taken the time and effort to swap out their 1981 DeLorean DMC-12’s motor with a WarP 9 electric motor, which is powered by thirteen 12 volt 100 amp-hour batteries. This will get you around 40 miles per charge, with a top speed of over 88 MPH. That 88 MPH is important since that is the speed needed to activate the Flux Capacitor which was also installed.
There are two disappointments that I see here. First, the “Buy It Now” price is set at $100,000 which is a bit salty, even for an electric DeLorean. Second, this guy has a Flux Capacitor, has traveled into the future, and battery technology still sucks. Okay, so maybe I made up that last part.
