The DeLorean DMC-12 (commonly referred to simply as "the DeLorean", as it was the only model ever produced by the company) is a sports car manufactured by John DeLorean's DeLorean Motor Company for the American market from 1981 to 1983. The car features gull-wing doors and an innovative fiberglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis, along with external brushed stainless-steel body panels. It became widely known and iconic for its appearance, and a modified DMC-12 was immortalized as the DeLorean time machine in the Back to the Future media franchise.
The first prototype appeared in October 1976. Production officially began in 1981 in Dunmurry, a suburb of southwest Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the first DMC-12 rolled off the production line on January 21. Over the course of production, several features of the car were changed, such as the hood style, wheels, and interior. About 9000 DMC-12s were made before production halted in early 1983
The amazing DeLorean DMC-12 on sale here at Hofmanns is a January 1982 car, which was imported to the UK from the USA in 2015 and has covered just 60790 miles with only one UK registered owner.
The car is finished in the only option of the very eye-catching brushed stainless steel (bar 3 x 24k gold plated cars) that underwent a full overhaul on its arrival to the UK and looks as perfect today as it did when finished. Along with this the car has received all necessary modifications to conform with UK law and comes with MOT until 16/09/2018, it also benefits from a fully uprated, adjustable and oil filled suspension from Pro-Tech providing a far superior ride and height adjustment to the original gas filled dampers.
As with all our vehicles the car will go through a comprehensive pre-sales inspection by one of our experienced technicians.
All vehicles supplied through Hofmann’s have funding options available and part exchanges welcome.
