The car goes back to the future – a project that has stalled for the last three years will be resumed and launched in the form of small-scale production
The Texas Delorean Motor Company, which is not directly affiliated with the Irish automaker, may next year begin small-scale production of the upgraded DeLorean DMC-12. It is interesting that initially the company was able to agree on the heirs of John Delorean and even received the rights of the DMC trademark and logo. However, the project was stalled due to delays by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The fact is that the department was in no hurry to approve the rules for the production of small-scale cars. The case moved to a dead center only at the end of 2019, when a set of requirements for such retro-models appeared. Actually, now the project has been given a green light and everyone will soon be able to touch the cult legend. Interestingly, the coupe will receive a modified chassis and a new engine: the 130-horsepower V6 with a volume of 2.8 liters will be replaced by a 3.5-liter unit with a return of 400 horsepower.
