The 487 hp DeLorean DMC-12 sold for $ 243,000

The DeLorean DMC-12 might have been forgotten in history if it weren’t for the “Back to the Future” trilogy, thanks to which it gained great popularity, and one copy sold for as much as 243,000 dollars.

It is a DeLorean produced in 1981, which instead of a 2.85-liter V6 engine is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine from Kia Stinger equipped with two Garrett turbochargers.

The engine is paired with a 6-speed transmission and a limited slip differential taken from the Porsche 911 (996.2), and the brake calipers are from the Ferrari 348 Challenge. The car has a 3-inch centrally placed dual exhaust system, Recaro seats and Alpine sound system.

Giugiaro designed the body panels, and the 15-inch wheels are original. The engine compartment is back exposed. The Lotus worked on the chassis and was further strengthened.

The interior is largely unchanged, with the exception of the Porsche gear lever, turbo pressure gauge and speakers. The cluster probably needs to be replaced because the car is going much faster than what it shows. The car crosses 402 meters in 11.65 seconds, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in about 4 seconds.

DeLorean was kept in storage for 20 years until 2019.
