As we already announced at the beginning of the year, we may soon enjoy a new DeLorean DMC-12. Yes, the car that so famously did with “Back to the Future”. A new law passed at the end of 2015 in the united States allows manufacturers to produce and sell a certain number of replicas of models that do business for at least 25 years. Although must meet certain requirements, especially in safety and pollution.
This law came as “agua de mayo” to the brand, from the first moment he saw clearly his chance to return to produce the legendary DeLorean DMC-12. DeLorean Motor Company has plans to make a replica as similar as possible to the original model, although we already know that there will be variations in both aesthetic and mechanical with respect to the car of “Back to the Future”.
At least will change the wheels, since the law required a brake system current with greater effectiveness than the first DMC-12, the engine, by introducing a modern machine to comply with certain emission limits and to ensure a better performance of the vehicle, and maybe a redesigned passenger compartment to improve both the comfort onboard as the driving of the same.
The company aims to to get information from some potential buyers to know the interest that these have in the vehicle, primarily, to get to know some of the details that could be like more or less, design and if you would prefer to manual or automatic transmission.
the forecast for the new DeLorean DMC-12 was that it began its production in 2017, even though seen who still have doubts of this type and you don’t even know which engine they will use for their replicas, difficult to ensure that the first units will be ready in 2017. on the other hand, months ago it was announced that the initial production was going to be very brief, declaring that as they were checking the number of lawsuits could increase the level of manufacturing.
