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.
