Books have already been written about John DeLorean. So let's leave aside the colorful founder of the car brand of the same name. What remains is a unique car, a brilliant concept and a car that was made world famous by the films of Back to the Future. Whether the DMC DeLorean would have become as famous without the movies and would still be as beloved today, we will never know. This example is from 1981 and features some cool details that later examples no longer had. For example, the car has the hood of type with the long grooves, it has black leather upholstery and was equipped with the new type of rims as on this specimen. The bodywork was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and is a beautiful piece of design. The way the car is built is an equally great masterpiece the base forms a Y-shaped chassis that was inspired by the Lotus Esprit. Around this is a fibreglass underbody on which the stainless steel body was mounted. A wonderful way to build a car. Most likely, the look alone is responsible for the fact that rumors have surfaced so often that someone wanted to make a relaunch of the illustrious brand. The brushed aluminum exterior gives the DeLorean a beautiful and futuristic look and still looks to pass muster. The exterior is completely original and the bodywork is in pristine condition. Nice thing about a DeLorean: putty, of course, is not possible, so damages cannot be covered up. Fortunately, the exterior still looks exactly as the DeLorean left the factory.
The interior is neat. Not surprisingly, the inside of the DeLorean looks completely original and is in neat condition. We sometimes see it differently with DeLorean's but this example has neat upholstery on the seats and also the dashboard and other parts are still very clean in terms of upholstery. The carpets are obviously also in good condition and the instruments and controls all function exactly as they should. The technique is neatly cared for. The technology has already been taken care of. The engine and transmission are otherwise rock solid. The DMC DeLorean is powered by a 2.7 liter V6 engine that DeLorean was allowed to build under license from Renault. The engine produces 132 horsepower and in this case is mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine and transmission are more than up to the task and make the DeLorean a wonderfully relaxed touring car. The car is further equipped with independent suspension all around and fine brakes and thus drives excellently. In short: a DeLorean that can provide many enjoyable rides. It is difficult to travel to the future with it, but in any case, a fun future awaits you with a DeLorean in your possession.
