Profile

In performance terms alone the De Lorean DMC-12 does not qualify as a supercar, even a junior supercar. However it's unique appearance, gadgetry, notoriety and worldwide fame as the time machine from 'Back to the Future' ensure it's inclusion in SupercarWorld.

The DMC was the brainchild of successful entrepreneur John De Lorean, but proved a commercial flop as production costs spiralled almost doubling the retail price of the car, contributing to De Loreans infamous downfall.

The car itself was a head turner. The stainless steel bodywork and flamboyant gull wing doors were styled by none other than Giugiaro. Performance from the Renault sourced V6 seems pedestrian today but was adequate for a sportscar at the time.

The De Lorean remains an icon today, with good examples fetching over 12,000
