Great Scott! Back to the Future DeLorean is Back in Production

The iconic DeLorean that was immortalised in the Back to the Future movies is to be reproduced it has been revealed.

DeLorean Motor Company announced it will make a limited run of 300 examples of the car that was made famous by Michael J Fox, who played Marty McFly, in the 1985 film.

The Texas-based car manufacturer says it intends to produce roadworthy replicas that will include the gullwing door.

Originally, the DeLorean was launched in 1981 but only 9,000 models were made before the company went bankrupt two years later.

By the time the Robert Zemeckis movie was released in 1985, the sports car which transformed into a time machine, became a collector’s item.

The DeLorean Motor Company has no connection to the original company of the same name or the estate of John DeLorean -the American engineer who worked for General Motors before designing the DeLorean and setting up his own business in Detroit, Michigan in 1975. He died at the age of 80 in 2005.

In 1995, Stephen Wynne, a Liverpool-born mechanic, assumed the name of the DeLorean Motor Company and acquired the rights to distribute and reproduce all parts of the DeLorean, including all intellectual property.

The DeLorean was made up of 2,800 parts and Wynne’s business has more than 99 per cent of them and has to rebuild the rest of them from the original drawings. He announced that DMC will make 300 new cars but will include a more environmentally efficient engine than the original which had 130 horsepower.

But if you are a Back to the Future fan and fancy getting your hands on one, a DeLorean will set you back between £56,000 and £70,000 with production starting in 2017.
