Three-hundred brand new replica Deloreans to be built

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Brand-new Deloreans will be built in the United States.

The Delorean Motor Company moved to Humble, Texas, in 1987, but has only restored privately-owned Deloreans. A bill approved by the federal government will now allow the company to build a limited number of replica 1982 Deloreans.

The owner of the Delorean Motor Company says he'll build about 300 cars. The price has not yet been determined, but the company hopes it will be less than $100,000.

The final price will depend on the cost of a modern engine.

The first new Delorean is expected to roll off of the production line early next year.
