Back in 2007, we featured one of these in need of serious work just to get moving, but now you can pick up a DeLorean DMC-12 like 'new'. Indeed, it even has room for your iPod.
Made famous by its time machine posturing in Back To The Future and still collectable because of the short production span (1981 – 1983), the car has got a new lease of life via the DeLorean Motor Company, which is owned and run by Texas entrepreneur Stephen Wynne – and the proud owner of the substantial number of spare parts produced for the car.
That means you can buy a DeLorean DMC-12 built from the ground up using a combination of new, original and reproduction parts, offering up a new, improved design, stainless steel chassis, performance engine and suspension packages, the option of auto or manual gears and everything from other HD and satellite radios to iPod interfaces, satelllite navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity for the in-car gadgetry. Those gullwing doors are standard obviously.
None of that comes cheap, as you might expect. The entry level price is the eqiuivalent of £36,889, while the price of a souped-up version is just over £40,000. But that price does make you the envy of your neigbourhood. See the site to start building your own model online.
