Dreamed up and conceived by John Z. DeLorean, with whom it shares its name, and engineered by Lotus, the DeLorean DMC-12 debuted in 1981. The DeLorean is a rear-engine two-passenger sports car that is truly one of a kind. Sporting gullwing doors, an angular form and a completely stainless-steel finish, the DMC-12 stands out in any crowd.
Although the execution missed the mark and only 9,000 units were produced, the DeLorean is quite the cult favorite. Popularized by the Back to the Future franchise, many enthusiasts have inquired as to how they can install a flux capacitor that provides 1.21 gigawatts of power so that they can time travel just like Doc Brown did in the 1985 classic.
Production slowed due to inconsistencies and ultimately ceased in 1982 which caused the company to go bankrupt shortly thereafter. DeLorean desperately tried to secure funding to get the company back on its feet but ended up becoming involved in darker issues with the government which effectively destroyed any hope of reviving his company.
Presented here is a single owner, 3,310-miled DeLorean that is equipped with multiple dealer options that include a twin turbo kit, ground effects, spoiler, and stripe kit, giving it many unique qualities. Powered by the standard 2.85L V6 and an automatic transmission, this DMC-12 is ready to hit the road. The exterior stainless steel has been polished well and the ground effects give the aesthetic an even sportier feel. The gullwing doors are a fan-favorite and a sight to see.
The interior cockpit sports black leather buckets that show little to no wear and grey carpeting throughout. The cabin also comes complete with floor mats in each wheel-well displaying the DMC logo. The front trunk, or frunk, compartment provides ample hauling room for any items that you might need to bring along with you. The vehicle has also undergone an extensive tune-up as of February of this year and is ready to be transported to its new owner.
It can be said that Doc said it best when he uttered, “The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”. The DeLorean DMC-12 is nothing short of style and will transport anyone exactly where they would love to be. Although it may not be back in time, you can sure bet that this vehicle will make any adventure a once in a lifetime one. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions. Thank you for looking.
