The name De Lorean is as famous as it is infamous, but there’s no denying that the price of these futuristic cars is on the rise – so the DMC-12 on Auto Trader right now could be shrewd investment.
The cars were made from 1981 – 1983, mainly for the US market (the reason why are all left-hand drive and a good reason why it featured as a time machine in the US-made 80s classic Back To The Future). The one here is described as a ‘show winner inside and out’ and still having that ‘new car smell’. But it is also described as ‘unrestored’, despite having upgrades to the electrics, locks and gearbox.
The fact that the owner will ‘trailer anywhere’ doesn’t make it sound like a good runner either. But it does have low mileage (17,500) and for the £26,500 price tag, you are guaranteed a real head-turner.
