The DeLorean sports car was the brainchild of John DeLorean, the automotive maverick and former General motors engineer who created the Pontiac GTO in 1964. The DMC-12 with its distinctive stainless steel body and exotic gull-wing foors, debuted in 1981. By 1983, amidst finacial difficulties and prosecution on a federal drug charge to which he was later acquitted, the venture unraveled after building only 8,583 cars.
The futuristic-looking DeLorean car may be most remembered for its role in the Back to the Future film trilogy, starring Michael J. Fox.
