John Z. DeLorean rose quickly through the ranks at General Motors, becoming the youngest head of a GM division (Pontiac) at just 40 years of age and eventually reaching the level of vice president. However, his flashy lifestyle did not fit into the conservative culture of GM’s upper management. DeLorean saw that the presidency was probably out of reach and left GM in 1973. A talented engineer and salesman, DeLorean pursued his dream of building his own sports car. Thus was born the DeLorean Motor Company.

The DMC-12 was built in Northern Ireland and designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign. The DMC-12 has an iconic design with distinctive wing doors and outer body panels of brushed stainless steel. The chassis and suspension were largely based on the Lotus Esprit while the powerplant was a 2.8-liter V6 developed by Peugeot, Renault and Volvo (PRV). The engine was used in several cars, including the Renault Alpine A610 and the Venturi Atlantique.

The DeLorean DMC-12 was built from 1981 to 1983. About 9,000 are estimated to have been produced for the U.S. market during that period.

This DeLorean DMC-12 started life in the US in 1981 with a gray interior and a 5-speed manual transmission. The carfax has several registrations that support the current mileage.

In 2007, the car was imported by its sole Belgian owner and homologated as an only vehicle and thus has a Belgian registration.

Today everyone knows the Delorean DMC-12 as the teletime machine from the Back to the future movies!
