Myth & Mogul: John DeLorean

John DeLorean is, you guessed it, the inventor of the world-famous ‘DeLorean’ which, if you didn’t already know, widely came to fame as the featured time-machine of the classic 80s movie ‘Back to the Future’. – If you don’t know about this movie then we highly recommend you watch it ASAP. Alternatively, check out last week’s top pick ‘Movies That Made Us’ the first episode is all about the making of the film and includes the car of course. – Back to the present though (see what we did there?) and this documentary features the inventor of the famous car. The story of his rise to the top as an engineer in the automobile world with money on his mind features footage from the time as well as interviews with those who were closest to him.
