Seller's Notes

This example of the 1981 DeLorean marque is one-of-a-kind in many ways.
The elements of aesthetics and performance converge to make a car that has stunning looks and superior handling and “feel”.
It has been meticulously maintained for reliability, and the enhancements were selected with an eye toward performance and convenience.
Power output from the engine is approximately 50% greater than the stock DeLorean engine
The 3-speed automatic transmission has been replaced with a crate transmission and equipped with a digital shift computer for better reliability and performance.
The engine has been modified to the Northwest Stage 2 standard
Stainless steel performance exhaust system
ported and polished heads with a performance valve grind
Custom performance camshafts
Custom stainless steel braided fuel injection lines (more fuel volume)
The exterior elements of the engine have been powder coated in Rossa red
Hand-made carbon fiber accents
Embedded red LED’s complete the custom look
The Suspension has been heavily upgraded
Lowered with new Eibach coil springs
Adjustable shock absorbers
Stainless steel front strut brace engineered for the DeLorean
A unique custom rear anti-roll bar that is tuned specifically for this car
Polyurethane front sway bar bushings to keep unwanted movements to a minimum
A set of genuine original Toby-TABS to ensure that the rear suspension is solid and safe.
The wheels are custom machined billet wheels with “Plus 3” sizing and an Offset Pairing with 17in front and 18in Rear to allow low profile Michelin Sport AS/3 tires for superior handling.
The center caps are also custom made specifically for this car.
These wheels are styled in a way that acknowledges the iconic look of the originals, but with a modern flare. Even the lug nuts are special, requiring a splined key for removal.
The interior has been substantially refreshed
New two-tone seat covers, headliners, carpets
Programmable LED interior lighting system that is controlled using your smartphone
All parts of the interior are in perfect shape, offering a comfortable escape from the daily grind.
A high-end flux capacitor takes center stage on the rear parcel shelf, with another simplified version installed as the cover for the lockable storage compartment behind the driver’s seat.
A car’s steering wheel is the driver’s interface with the machine. With DOC BROWN, you get to wrap your hands around a genuine Momo steering wheel mounted with a custom machined billet adapter. The look and feel of Italian leather must be experienced to be truly appreciated.
Exterior Modifications
The nearly flawless exterior has been transformed by the addition of a functional negative lift rear wing made from the highest quality carbon fiber available, thoughtfully mounted to a strengthened rear louver assembly using custom-made stainless steel uprights.
The side rocker panels have been replaced by ground-effect side skirts, with stylish stainless steel screened intakes for the rear ducts. A CB radio antenna is mounted to the louvers on a custom base fitting for stability and strength.
Lighting is enhanced by extremely bright and efficient LED headlights, taillights, and an LED third brake light mounted to the underside of the rear wing.
The headlights also have a selectable daytime running light functionality.
There is a complete LED undercar lighting system installed that is also controlled by Bluetooth via a smartphone app.
Opening the front trunk reveals a “Mr. Fusion” with LED internal illumination. This is an unusual location for Mr. Fusion but works well with the rest of the modifications to this car.
Added Features and Functionality
In order to fully appreciate and enjoy the experience of owning this exotic motorcar, state-of-the-art electronic conveniences have been carefully integrated that take it to the next level.
A Wings-A-Loft Elite system was installed, along with several related enhancement
