8583 DeLorean produites entre 1981 et 1983.
Trois voitures ont été utilisées pour ce premier film, dont une découpée pour les plans intérieurs.
La carosserie est en acier inoxidable, comme dit dans le film.
Le moteur est un moteur PRV (Peugeot-Renault-Volvo).
Elle était construite en Irlande, et beaucoup de pièces étaient d'origine européenne.

Non, c'est un chassis Lotus.

Il y en a une petite dizaine en France, quelques unes au Luxembourg et Belgique. Un peu plus en Allemagne, et probablement un peu partout en Europe, même s'il y en a très peu.
En Amérique du Nord il y en a nettement plus, vu qu'elles n'étaient vendues que là.

Ha, au fait, la base est le PRV 2.8 bien connu version atmo 130 bourrins a peu près, chassis réalisé par Lotus, assemblées a Belfast en Irelande.



JZ Delorean etait l'ancien PDG du groupe GM.



La ligne est due a Ital Design, alias Giorgetto Giugiaro.

The DeLorean is a British car (Northern Ireland), not American. The DeLorean country flag next to the car, is shown as USA. It is NOT an American car!! As an American who has a DeLorean, and lived 10 miles from it's creator John Z. DeLorean (who is an American in NJ) and having returned from the 25th anniversary of the car near Belfast and toured the old plant, I CAN ASSURE YOU THE CAR WAS MADE IN DUNMURRY, NEAT BELFAST IN NORTHERN IRELAND, SO IT IS A BRITISH CAR!

Pas tout à fait d'accord dans le cas spécifique de la De Lorean: voiture fabriquée en Irlande comme un produit irlandais et revendiqué comme tel, dans ce cas précis. Okay, John Z DeLorean est américain, mais la fabrication avait été annoncée comme irlandaise, à grands coups de trompette, à l'époque. Un de ces, je retrouverai les articles de presse de ces temps reculés...

Pour le cas des Renault, OK. Sauf pour la Clio 4 portes, spécifique au marché turc... De même pour, par exemple, la Citroën Fukang, déclinaison lointaine et chinoise de la ZX, en trois volumes... comme les Dacia 1310, que l'on considère sans états d'âme comme roumaines. Alors que les premières étaient des copies conforme de la Renault 12... (CKD, au début!)

The De Lorean Motor Company was set up in Northern Ireland and heavily funded by the British government, therefore 'Made in UK'. In the end the company was sadly killed after just 18 month due to a economic recession and undercover FBI agents trying to buy company shares with drugs.

Even though targeted at customers in the USA this was, to my knowledge, not an exclusive market. Therefore I would not use 'Made for USA'.

The Delorean did have Porsche engines installed in the car, in fact u can listen to the car's torque of how gruntling it sounds compared to the regular PRV Pugeot engines that are stock for the Deloreans. In the Back to the Future 1 scene in the last part of the movie when "Doc" Brown backs out of the drive way after picking up Marty and Jeniffer before having the car fly, listen to the car's torque while the car is backing out of the drive way

Or, more likely, the sound editor mixed in the noise of a Porsche engine to make the car sound more powerful. It's entirely normal for sound effects to be beefed up like that.

A friend of mine, a Japanese in the USA, had such a DeLorean a long time ago.

Mostly there was no engine-sound anyways - because it never runs. Worst quality as hell, even worse than the Maserati Biturbo, he owned later.
After these exotic desastrous excursions he went back to reality and bought some VW's.


Ca.4-5 years ago, in my old home-town Dortmund I was wondering, to see a DeLorean parking on the street in the neighbourhood. Obviously the owner has used it for daily driving (or daily standing around).

The reason why the movie makers had changed the engines was because it wasnt getting up to speed that was the problem that they faced in the movie. It was the fact that all the weight that was put on the car and a wee little 6 cyl wouldnt cut it, so they put a porsche engine in it.

I've seen several places on the net, claiming the engine sound is from a Ford and not a Porsche.
Personally I believe that, because it sounds nothing like any Porsche engine.
Besides I found this on youtube, this sounds incredibly close to the Delorean in the BTTF series when it revs.
Try comparing the film when the Delorean revs, with these youtube films of an 84 Ford reving.
Especially the first youtube film, at the first rev.

Look do you really think they would go through the trouble to custom fit a Porsche 928 v8 engine in a Delorean, with the limited budget they had.
Besides at that point in time a Porsche 928 engine would probably cost an arm or a leg.
Plus the Porsche engine is a much faster revving engine than the one we hear in the movies.

Well, you and i don't know of how much of a budget they had. Besides, a Delorean with a Peugot V6 engine is sluggish so there's no way a Delorean with that(peugot v6) engine could reach 88mph or higher.

Let alone perform the way it did on film especially in the chase scenes.

Matter of fact here's proof that they did change the engine for film purposes, just read the last paragraph right above the "Electronics" section that is green: http://www.backtothefuture.me.uk/delorean.html

Now first of all ask any Delorean owner if their standard Delorean could reach 88 MPH/140,8 KMH.
I promise you it can easily reach that speed, it would not be quick to reach that speed I'll grant you that.

Besides your government at that time had a ridiculous idea having all of your cars speedometers end on 80-85 MPH.

And on another note the Delorean on the european market was actually more powerful it had about 170 hp, because in most european countries it wasn't a necessary to have a catalytic converter (which in this case was a powerhog).
So the european version of the Delorean had more power, plus it had better handling because there wasn't a law that stipulated the headlights being as high up from the ground as in USA, therefore the front was lower to the ground.

To sum it up it could easily have driven itself under its own power, notice how the ground is always wet when the Delorean is in action (then it could easily slide around like it does).
And take a look at the chase with the Delorean it never really looks like it's going fast.

Sorry, Mike, but you're not correct. It was made in Northern Ireland, which is indeed on the Irish island, but it belongs to the UK. The Republic of Ireland is an own, independent country. Sure, in the historical view it's one country, but not in the actual situation.


I don't really agree with your opinion about Germany: East Germany was not the USSR - but a Soviet colony! :no: And artificial creation, made by Soviet-bondaged exile-communists. It was never accepeted by the majority of the West Germans as a real, own and independent country.

The DDR-habitants have heard this hundreds-of-thousands times, when we West Germans went back after a visit there: "Now we are going back to Germany".

Everyone else. Not wothout a reason the DeLorean-story became one of the bigger disasters in the automotive history.

If the movie was released before the end of the production, they would have probably sold many more cars :p

The fuel device thingy is really a Krups coffee grinder.

The home appliances from that company are well known in the cineastic history. The starter-shift of this spaceship http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raumpatrouille was indeed a Krups flat iron. :D
@dsl: a mixer tap was in use, too, for entering the Universe. In Germany they were already produced in the 60ies... :p

Anyone else notice it appears the ride height in the front has been altered on the De Loreans in this film?

Several DeLoreans were used in the films. Which one is the restoration?

Only three were used in the first movie (and one of these was cut for inside shots)
I am not sure that they used much more for the other two movies.

I wonder, is it possible to add "Time Machine" to "Model" (so that it make "DeLorean DMC-12 Time Machine") in cases when we see a slightly visually modified BTTF DeLorean?.. It will be much easier to browse - we still can see all of them on main DeLorean page but we can sort out all of the original and replica time machines in a few clicks...

That's a little messy to add names like that to model names. As I said on /vehicle.php?id=2887#Comment1513691 a feature to link cars will be added later

what i never understood is why the DeLorean is covered in ice when Einstein comes back and not the other times it travels in time... :think:

A more fundamental problem is the DeLorean can not travel back in time without destroying itself.

"The idea is that according to Quantum Theory, the universe doesn't have just a unique single history. Instead, the universe has every single possible history, each with its own probability. [...] But each history is complete and self contained, describing not only the curved space-time, but also the objects in it. So a rocket can not transfer to another alternative history, when it comes round again. It is still in the same history, which has to be self consistent." http://www.hawking.org.uk/space-and-time-warps.html

Gag Halfrunt wrote Or, more likely, the sound editor mixed in the noise of a Porsche engine to make the car sound more powerful. It's entirely normal for sound effects to be beefed up like that.

I've read that it was a Porsche 928S V8 engine, As the standard 2.8 liter PRV V6 (Which was also in my 1980 Volvo 265 GLE station wagon.) Was anything but muscular sounding!!! I think the transmissions were also Porsche 928 five speed manuals.

Listed as De Lorean, but DeLorean was used in ads and letterheads, even old man John used DeLorean, it seems
