1981 DeLorean DMC 12

The celebrated former vice-president of General Motors, John Z DeLorean, launched a car that carried his name, the DeLorean DMC 12, towards the end of the 1970s. But further down the road, allegations of management fraud and embezzlement caused it to fail. In the middle of this financial maelstrom, DeLorean was accused of trafficking cocaine. The slippery slope got steeper, and took him to prison. There, he found faith, before being acquitted of the charges against him...
This fascinating adventure only adds to the appeal of the car that lies at the heart of the story, particularly as it isn’t without its own attractions. The restrained and sporty body was designed by Giugiaro and the stainless steel body mounted on a beam-chassis was undeniably original. Access to the cockpit was via gull-wing doors and the engine, positioned at the rear, was a V6 PRV 2.9-litre whose 137bhp could power the beauty to 200km/h. Somewhere between 8,000 and 9,000 examples of this avant-garde machine were produced, made famous by its starring role in the film ‘Back to the Future’.

The DMC 12 in the sale has covered just 20 000 miles since leaving the factory! It belongs to one of today’s most famous photographers who quite simply fell head over heels in love with the car when he saw it for sale with a collector from Monaco. Being such an iconic model, it appeals to enthusiasts of every generation, with a rare mechanical gearbox and its distinctive stainless steel body in excellent condition complete with ‘gullwing’ doors. The interior has been very well conserved and on close inspection it is clear that the car has been maintained to the highest standards. Here is a rare opportunity to acquire a well-preserved DMC 12 and become a member of the highly exclusive De Lorean club. It is a car that marked a generation and is likely to gain in popularity over the next few years. Available to buy now !

1981 DeLorean DMC 12

Ancien vice-président de General Motors, John Z. DeLorean lance à la fin des années 1970 une voiture portant son nom, la DeLorean DMC 12. Mais au bout du chemin, c'est la faillite sur fond de gestion frauduleuse et de détournement de fonds. En plein maelström financier, le beau John est alors accusé de trafic de cocaïne: plus dure sera la chute, au fond d'une prison américaine. Là, il découvre la foi, avant d'être acquitté des charges qui pèsent sur lui...
La ligne sobre et sportive de la DMC 12 est signée Giugiaro et la carrosserie en inox montée autour d'un châssis-poutre présente une indéniable originalité. L'accès à l'habitacle se fait par des portes papillon du meilleur effet et le moteur, placé à l'arrière, est un V6 PRV 2,9 litres dont les 137 ch emmène la belle à 200 km/h. On estime entre 8 et 9 000 exemplaires la production de cette voiture avant-gardiste, rendue célèbre par sa présence dans le film "Retour vers le futur".

La DMC 12 de la vente n'a parcouru que 20 000 miles depuis sa sortie d’usine ! Elle est la propriété d’un des plus célèbres photographes actuels qui avait tout simplement eu un coup de foudre lorsqu’il l’avait vu en vente chez son collectionneur monégasque. Toutes les générations ne pourront qu’être passionnées par ce modèle emblématique, doté d’une rare boîte mécanique, à l’allure unique avec ses portes ‘papillon’ et sa carrosserie en inox en excellent état. L’intérieur a été très bien conservé et il est indéniable qu’elle a bénéficié du meilleur entretien lorsqu’on l’inspecte de près. Il s’agit d’une rare opportunité d’acquérir un exemplaire si bien conservé et l’assurance d’entrer dans le club très fermé de ces De Lorean si exclusive. Il est évident que cette voiture a marqué une génération et qu’elle obtiendra une cote bien plus élevé dans quelques années. A acquérir maintenant !
