The Delorean DMC-12 was made from 1981 to 1983 and was the only model produced by the company, which went bankrupt in 1982. The model’s most distinguishable features were the unpainted stainless steel body and the gull-wing doors. The stainless steel body panels were fixed to a fiberglass monocoque underbody. The car was equipped by a four-wheel independent suspension system using double wishbones and handling was said to be a definite plus of the model. Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign penned the Delorean DMC-12, giving the model a refined and modern look. The car was powered by a rear-mounted, fuel-injected, V6, 2.85-liter engine, made by Peugeot-Renault-Volvo. The power output was about 130, which enabled a 0-to-60 mph acceleration in about 10 seconds.
Although the Delorean DMC-12 was introduced in 1976, the car only entered production in 1981. About 9,000 units were made but a much smaller number is now still available on the market.
