1982 DeLorean DMC-12

Vintage Car of the Month

Posted On March 2, 2015

Owned by Justin, Guelph, ON.

Introducing my 1982 DeLorean DMC-12, a very unique piece of automotive history.

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in January 1982, the car’s colourful past and scandal ridden history add myth and arguably interest  – this is much more than the product of a short lived automotive company.

This example is, as all DMC-12s left the factory – unpainted, brushed stainless-steel body panels, rear mounted PRV (Peugeot/Renault/Volvo) 2.8 V6 engine, and signature counter-balanced gullwing doors.

The wedge-shaped lines styled by ItalDesign and refined by Lotus during engineering development still look clean and distinctly Lotus in stance even today.

A 5-speed manual US car, it was restored in 1996 by the DeLorean Motor Company in Texas, and is mostly original short of a few subtle upgrades such as correct European height springs, and machine finished rims.

Being one of the later production cars, it features a flat (vs grooved on the earlier cars) hood with emblem, stainless exhaust tips, and the rarest interior configuration; black leather with high contrasting light grey carpeting.
