The DeLorean Motor Company which was originally founded in 1975 by John DeLorean is best known for the only car model they produced – the ‘DMC-12’.
The car has a devoted cult following all thanks to its appearance in the Back to the Future trilogy. The car itself has a distinctive stainless steel finish and iconic gull-wing doors.

After 30 years a large number of the original cars are still on the road and an estimated 6,500 cars surviving out of just over 9,000 built.
