Description:

The DeLorean DMC-12 is part of the rare fraternity where an exotic car made with exotic materials actually hit the road. So when you can get low-mileage well-preserved example that has only been owned by one family, then it's time to take notice.
The DMC-12 was the dream of one man come to life. While that usually means John DeLorean, in this case, it's the patriarch of our consignor's family. He purchased this car in the early '80s (possibly new) and babied it for decades. That's how you get a classic that has barely averaged over 800 miles annually. And while the body is made out of stainless steel for easy care, you can tell by the grain in the material that this one has always been cared for correctly. The body panels retain an expert fit, including the hallmark gullwing doors. So when they are closed, the rubber parameter guards look like a sporty unbroken line. All the details are correct on this survivor, too from the turbine-style wheels, to the grooved hood.
Inside is a well-preserved gray leather cockpit designed around the driver. You get a comfy bucket seat, a grippy three-spoke sports steering, and this gives you a terrific view of the full gauge package. The high center tunnel gives you an easy place to grab the three-speed automatic's shifter. Plus, as a true grand touring machine, it comes with plenty of comfortable features like power windows, tilt steering column, electric rear defogger, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and factory air conditioning that's still blowing nice and cold.
In the rear you'll find a well preserved engine bay with plenty of original DMC decals. But more than just survivor quality, the original motor has been well maintained. In fact, the consigning family drove the car 40 miles to our showroom without incident. While the DMC-12 was only in production for a few short years, the fuel-injected 2.8-liter V6 engine was a mainstay at Peugeot, Renault, and Volvo. So you get limited-run rarity with easy parts availability. This was not always the fastest sports car around, but that was also not the point of the DeLorean. The chassis was developed at Lotus, and so they gave it a lightweight feeling, nimble fully-independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. That makes it quite a fun car to drive.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a surviving one-owner example of a very unique car. These have a large fan base, and a great dealer network (yes, there still are dealers!) So you get all the fun of an exotic classic for quite a nice price. Don't miss this opportunity. Call now!
