The DMC-12 was a sports car manufactured by the DeLorean Motor Company from 1981 - 1983. It is commonly referred to simply as 'the DeLorean,' because it was the only model ever produced by the company before it folded.

The DMC-12 featured gull-wing doors and an innovative fiberglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis, along with external brushed stainless steel body panels. It became widely known for its unique appearance.

Because the DMC-12 was the star of the Back to the Future movie Franchise, it is beloved by younger car enthusiasts for whom it represents the stuff of dreams. For many people under the age of 40, a DeLorean is as iconic as the great pre-war cars are to their grandparents.

The first prototypes of the DMC-12 appeared in October of 1976. Production officially began on January 21, 1981 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Over the course of production, several features of the car were changed, such as the hood style, wheels, and interior details. About 9,000 DMC-12s were made before production halted in early 1983 in a cloud of controversy surrounding its celebrity owner and namesake, John Z. DeLorean.

The DeLorean Motor Company was later liquidated as the United States car market went through its largest slump since the 1930s. In 2007, about 6,500 DeLorean Motor cars were believed still to exist.

The example is still in the posession of its original owner.
