Netflix have released a recent documentary on the rise and fall of John DeLorean
Plus a look back at previous DeLorean content here on Automotive American
The documentary is a mixture of footage from a previous documentary and interviews with those involved at the time including family members.
For me it’s the best one so far and I guess may be the last?
