Vintage car conversion


DMC DeLorean

Metron started with the project of converting the iconic DeLorean to electric propulsion.

In late 2018, Metron was contacted by the Irish documentary film maker Donal O’Neill (‘Cereal Killers’, ‘Run on Fat’, ‘The Big Fat Fix’,…) and presented the project for converting DeLorean. The iconic vehicle is meant to be featured in his upcoming documentary.
