a 13L engine would be 798.2 cubic inches. no. its poosible, theres a cadillac withan engine almost 14 litres, but, no. that would be odd.

Re: Who thinks the new DMC's will be successful?

do you mean the cadillac sixteen? if so than its only a concept for now, so it will be interesting to see if they keep it a 13.6 litre engine. It will also be interesting to see what happens with Delorean's ideas.

Re: Who thinks the new DMC's will be successful?

As much as I would love to see Delorean make a comeback, there is no chance in hell, even if John Delorean was still alive (which he isn't). I think all this talk of new Delorean models coming out have been rumors and made-up forum speculation from the begining. And what is all this BS I hear about a 13 Liter V12? Lets see some proof. That is completely outrageous, I can't believe you people even consider it or try to calculate how much it would way. It's obviously just another made up rumor with no factual basis that will spread like E. coli to other forums. It really wouldn't be logical for a car company to make a model with both a V6 and a V12 available, too much of a gap, to broad of a price range for one car. I bet this DMC-2 forum is only up because someone made a typo of DMC-12.

Dont be a prick about it.

Way...no its weigh

why is a v12 such a gap? Why not have something like that, a major performance model?

The car was an idea, and was in the design stage. Although it never made it I would love to see the car make it into production. I would love to see another, modernised D without the major restricitions the US put on the first which made it far less the sportscar it should have been.

*forced to raise the front up quite a bit
*major smog restrictions, worse than normal cars at the time
*forced to reinforce the frame, which added considerable weight and not much else

so please...stop with flaming everyone who talked of this...especally when its several years old...
