Coupe
Designer: Giorgetto Giugiaro
Chassis #: SCEDT26T6CD010427
Sold for $23,100 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall.
This 1981 Delorean DMC12 is a very original example with only 355 miles on the odometer. It is powered by a V6 engine that displaces 174 cubic-inches and produces 130 horsepower. There is a three-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel independent suspension. Disc brakes can be found on all four corners and the wheelbase measures 94.8-inches. This car was put up for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Mead Brook where it was offered without reserve and estimated to fetch between $20,000 - $30,000.

Standard features on the DMC12 were electric windows and mirrors, air-conditioning, a Craig stereo, central-locking and leather seats. The chassis was constructed from a Lotus designed chassis and consists of a central box-section backbone, and 'Y' shaped sub-frames. The body was formed from glass-reinforced plastic, with Brushed Grade 304 stainless-steel panels attached.

This DeLorean remains in very original condition and attracted a high bid of $23,100. At auction, this car was sold.
