1981 DeLorean DMC-12

The DMC DeLorean (commonly referred to simply as a "DeLorean", as it was the only model ever produced by the company) is a sports car originally manufactured by Jon DeLorean, DeLorean car company, or DMC, for the American market from model years 1981 through 1983. The car, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, stood out for its gull-wing doors and brushed stainless-steel outer body panels, as well as an innovative fiberglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis. Initially, it became widely known for its disappointing lack of power and performance, which didn't match the expectations created by its looks and price tag, but later after 1985 the DeLorean became iconic for its appearances as the time machine in the Back to the Future media franchise.

Throughout production, which began on January 21, 1981, the car was generally unchanged although minor features and parts of the car were changed, such as the hood style and wheels. Over the course of about 24 months spanning three model years, about 9,000 DeLoreans were made before production halted in early 1983.
The current owner has had the car serviced by one of the last factory technician that a group of owners will collectively hire to service and fix their cars, service records are
The body of the car shows no dings scratches or blemishes.
The leather interior is in good condition, only the driver seat has some wear and light cracks from it's age.
The 195 /60/14 Toyo front tires measure 10/32.
The 225/60/15 Toyo rear tires measure 10/32.
The car shows really well overall and is a great example of this year model.
The car will be delivered with one key.
