The DeLorean DMC-12 sports car was the dream of John DeLorean, former General Manager of the Pontiac Division of General Motors. The car was built for the American market in 1981-1982 featuring novel gullwing doors with a fiberglass "underbody" to which non-structural brushed stainless steel panels were affixed. The car became iconic for its appearance in the movie Back to the Future as a modified time machine as well as for the trials and tribulations of founder John DeLorean. The prototype appeared in October 1976 and production began in 1981 in Northern Ireland with the first DMC-12 rolling off the production line on January 21.
Approximately 9,000 DMC-12s were made before production halted in early 1983.This five-speed DeLorean with power windows, power seats, cassette tape player and air conditioning has just 6,256 miles and is noted to be in great condition.
