If you want a rare mid-engined classic that is not all that expensive, yet retains a certain exclusivity and has eye-catching styling, the DeLorean is definitely an option. Made famous all around the world through cinema, the car itself never came to fully realize the dream of John DeLorean, and only around 9,200 examples were manufactured in 1981 and 1982, of which around 6,500 are believed to still be in existence.

DeLorean Into The Future: New Model Coming Out In 2008

Read more
One of our favorite childhood dream cars, the “gullwing” DeLorean is set for a comeback next year according to executives of the new DeLorean company. The resurrected DeLorean will retain its predecessor’s squared-off looks and “gullwing” doors but it will feature a new interior and powertrain. In other words, DeLorean will rebuild the car, updating it wherever necessary. Prices are estimated to start from $57,000 with the first cars being delivered in the third quarter of 2008. The cars will be sold at five U.S. locations and one in Europe.

The DeLorean Motor Co., formed in 1995, had obtained thousand of spare parts from John DeLorean’s company, DMC which folded in 1983, helping out people restore and repair their DeLoreans for the past 12 years.

DeLorean With A 300Hp Mazda Rotary Engine

Read more
Did you know that John Z. DeLorean’s original plans for the iconic DMC-12 included a Citroen Wankel rotary engine, dubbed Comotar (developed by NSU and Citroën)? Of course, that never happened and the DeLorean ended up with an underpowered 130 bhp V6 engine jointly developed by Renault, Peugeot and Volvo. However, some lads decided to hook on DeLorean’s original vision and replace the ill-fated French V6 with a 300Hp strong, 2.0-liter 3-rotor rotary engine from the 1990 Mazda Eunos Cosmo.

And that’s not all. Since the stock transmission didn’t seem to be able to handle the power upgrade, they replaced it with a 6-speed manual transmission with Limited Slip Differential from a 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 2. According to the guys who did the engine-transplant, zero to 60mph (96 km/h) has been measured at 4.5 sec. Quarter mile has not been tested, but they estimated it to be around 13 sec. -Follow the jump for more pictures along with a video of the car
