You can order photo-etched parts with De Lorean name on it, than make a moulding from it attached to the cars body.

look on google for logo.
Print logo on paper, or better decal paper.
Cut paper letters out, & glue on thin styrene sheet,or apply decal (is easiest) on thin styrene sheet
Cut/saw/drill/... letters out of styrene sheet. Use files/sanding paper to adjust shapes.
Glue styrene sheet to bumper
use filler to fill edges

Should not be too difficult, & a lot cheaper than having PE sets drawn & produced.
