DeLorean Making a Small Comeback
The car made famous by the “Back to the Future” movies — and Cars.com’s top movie car for two years running — is back. Well, not really back, but a small custom shop in Texas has bought the DeLorean Motor Company name and parts after the original went bankrupt. The new DeLorean company is delivering completely rebuilt gull-wing cars at a starting price of $42,500.
For that price, the DeLorean is completely stripped and rebuilt from the frame up using original and refurbished parts. That means the inside looks exactly like it did in 1981. For us, this screams of the perfect opportunity to revise the interior to modern-day levels and leave the exterior alone. That’s basically what Ford did with the Mustang a few years ago. The small rear-mounted engine is also fitted to original specifications. The new DeLorean Motor Co. looks to produce just 20 of these a year and sell parts for existing models. Is there anyone out there who would pony up $42,500 for one of these new retro rides?
