That's the only pic I've been able to find. Apparently it's supposed to have gullwing doors, about 280 hp, 1500 lbs, $20,000.

Actually, I think the name hurts the car. I don't think anyone would buy a car made by DMC... unless it just blew everything away!

Don't get me wrong...

John Z. DeLorean. He was the head man at GM for two decades. He invented the ultimate muscle car (GTO). He led Pontiac and Chevy into the muscle car era. The man knows his stuff!!!

The concept behind the DMC(squared) is solid. Decease wind resistance and install an advanced engine. Manufacture the car modularly in a third-world country (so that the natives' lack of intelligence wouldn't affect build quality). The idea would work... if it wasn't for his rep AFTER the muscle car era.

But who knows...

More accurate photos of the car:

Looks like a car from Back to the Future part 2.

Ok, there are two versions of the new Delorean.

The first is the ultra-mega-cool version with a 13liter (yes, that's 13liters)V12, which is what the concept art car is supposed to have. This car is supposedly 85% complete.

The second version is an "affordable" version boasting a weight between 1400-1500lbs, mid-engine producting 250-270hp, with gull wing doors, and all that for under $30,000!

I got all this from http://www.deloreantime.com

I still don't believe they are making another Delorean... It smacks of more cokery to me

I would also have to say that the COPO ZL-1 Nova is the ultimate muscle car... although I would rather have a 1964 Royal Bobcat GTO, with the 421 super duty motor...

It will cost close to one million dollars and will be powered by a 1250 horsepower engine!

HAHAHAHAHA, just get an f-1 car

The U.S. street-legal car I'd like to have is the McClaren F1. This car is similar to what is being proposed (at leat in terms of performance and weight).

However, the Ultima GTR is just as fast (if not faster) than the F1... but costs only $80K or so. I think I'd take that, if not both since I'm speaking theoretically here.

13000cc.... That just doesn't sound right...

Yeah, it doesn't seem right (or even logical). With the right tuning and equipment, one can get enough HP out of a 4 cylinder H22A Honda engine! GM has an 8 litre engine in some of their new pickups, so I don't image 13 litres being too difficult...

They could start with GM's XV16 engine. 16 cylenders, with 1000hp and 1000lb ft of torque. A few modifications could be made, and it could work.

Interesting choice! I'm not sure GM would cooperate with DeLorean, though. JZD snubbed them way back in the 70's, and it was rumored that GM execs were partly responsible for the demise of DMC
