DeLorean is going back to the future and reviving the iconic gull-winged coupé. Unfortunately the released specs and images still show no sign of a functioning flux-capacitor.
The DeLorean is back. Well, sort of.
The one-hit-car-wonder has revealed images of an all-new electric sports car that resurrects the DeLorean name, some 40 years on from the movie that made it famous.
The DMC-12 – its only variant – achieved cult status after its starring role in the Back to the Future franchise. It became a coveted car-modity after the company went bankrupt in 1982, three years before the first movie was released.
This legacy is not lost on the newly minted DeLorean Motor Company Inc., which plans to use the icon’s pop-culture stardom to drive a nostalgia-led frenzy ahead of its public debut at California’s Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance in August.
Taking inspiration from the original DMC-12 model, the new Alpha5 will sport the same sleek coupe shape and signature gull-wing doors of the iconic Hollywood car. But the boxy lines and finicky flux capacitor, along with the petrol engine, will be left in 1985.
