Delorean DMC Scale Model Review

Original DeLorean DMC-12 Facts

  • The DeLorean DMC-12 has been synonymous with the Eighties – not least for a starring role as a time-travel device in the Back to the Future film trilogy.
  • The official 0-60mph time for the DMC-12 was 8.8 seconds.
  • The name also still exists, having been bought by Stephen Wynne. Now he is going one step further, planning to recommence series production, starting in spring 2017. The DeLorean is back.
  • The DMC-12 was chosen as the the travel machine in Back to the Future, with Christopher Lloyd as its inventor Doc Emmett
  • Gullwing doors, an unpainted stainless steel body and a role as a time travel machine in Back to the Future make the DMC-12 a symbol of the Eighties
  • The body design of the DMC-12 was a product of Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design and is panelled in brushed SS304 stainless steel.
  • The car was built in Dunmurry, a suburb of south-west Belfast, with the first car rolling off the production line on January 21, 1981.
  • The doors have space-age tech developed by the defense industry
    Grumman Aerospace developed the doors’ torsion bar (which helps with the lifting and lowering) and did most of the manufacturing under cryogenic conditions to ensure longevity.
  • The body is made from food-grade stainless steel. three cars were plated in solid gold. The original plan was to build 100 as part of a Christmas 1980 promotion for American Express gold card members. Only two of the $85,000 cars were sold, but a third was also built with spare parts, in case one of the other two was damaged.
