Lot No. 396 - 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 Estimate: £27,000 - £30,000 (Subject to 12.5% +VAT Buyer's Premium) One US owner and one UK owner from new and just 25,850 miles. - Bought directly from the first US owner and registered in the UK in 2017 by our vendor - A manual gearbox car with 25,850 miles (atoc) and an MOT until June 2021 - Detailed history file that includes invoices, handbooks and service books - Fitted car cover, original owners kit and the V5c showing one former keeper - The DeLorean DMC-12 is acknowledged as a must-have for any enthusiast and very few are just two owners from new. The DeLorean DMC-12 was a ground-breaking, innovative sports car manufactured by John DeLorean's 'DeLorean Motor Company' for the American market from 1981-83. The car featured gull-wing doors and an unusual fibreglass chassis and underbody structure, along with a brushed stainless steel body and is probably most widely known for its appearance as a time machine in the 'Back to the Future' film trilogy. It was designed by the talented Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design and built on a chassis engineered by Lotus with a 2.9-litre V6 engine sourced from Peugeot-Renault-Volvo. This rare, five-speed manual example was manufactured in Belfast in 1981, shipped to the United States and remained with the first owner in Florida until being purchased directly from him by our vendor. Registered in the UK to the importing shipping agent on 1st May 2017, the car was subsequently registered to our vendor three days later on the 4th May. The car features the desirable grey leather interior, as seen in the movie car, original radio and clock with no apparent cracking to the dashboard which is a common fault with the DMC-12. The history file is extensive and includes the service history, a copy of the purchase agreement, original cleaning kit, original spare wheel, DMC cover, and a large quantity of American paperwork relating to servicing works. To this consignor’s eye, the alloys wheels could do with being refurbished to correct the surface reaction. Supplied to auction with an MOT valid until June 2021 and a UK V5C.
