1981 DELOREAN DMC12
Why This Car Is Special
Back in time, the DeLorean DMC-12 was a dream of a man named John DeLorean. This great iconic classic car was most famous for its role in Back to the Future, a 1985 American comedic science fiction film.
It was the only car produced by the DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) and took six years to design and engineer and was built from scratch with the Giorgio Giugiaro-designed body that had all the right lines as a low and wide presence that was only trumped by its gullwing doors.
We have a super-low milage (shows under 25k miles on the speedometer} first year 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 with the VIN # ending in #1022 which the factory started stamping at 500, so it’s the 522 one built. It is like-new with everything like it came with and also having over 14 pages of receipts showing everything that was restored and added including electric steering.
This is not your run-of-the-mill DeLorean you might see on the internet for sale, but one of the finest you will see. You will not find a better one!
