1983 Dmc Dmc-12 Delorean Review — The only reason that I elected a 3 out of 5 for performance is because the engine is famous for being underpowered. The way I look at it is that if you are dating a supermodel, do you care how fast she does the 100 meter dash??? The car is definitely a head turner, since it is well known from its role in Back to the Future. Its handling is amazing. Hugs the curves and sticks to the road like glue. The stainless steel skin in addition to the VARI fiberglass body and the steel, double-wishbone frame makes this one of the safest cars on the road. The fuel tank is wrapped within steel in the front wish-bone of the frame. The fun factor on this car is AMAZING. In my mind, there is no car funner to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Appearance, handling, build quality and story behind the car.

Cons: A little underpowered, but hey, what isn't.....

Well, They Don't Make Them Anymore And A Lot Of Trouble In Small Parking Spots, The Doors Were Wings — I loved the Gull Winged doors and the look.... The speed was pretty good, and handling was good.... It had it's ups and downs at times but she was a good first vehicle that my friend Jon Boyd gave me for a gift... No I am not Pathetic mister. The doors were hit another parked car alongside me, and that made it difficult to open them completely in small spaces... I would not recommend this vehicle for a trip to wal-mart or the grocerie store...And it's not family friendly, no real leg room in the back...

Pros: It was cool looking with the doors and the handling like a sports car.

Cons: When you parked it, the doors opened up and out and hit other cars next to you..

Delorean - Living The Dream — The DeLorean is a rare car with a one-of-a-kind look. It is fitted with a 2.85 Litre V6 engine, built by Peuegot, Renult & Volvo. It's done 57,000 miles over it's 25 year lifespan. The cost of running one is normal for a sports car as it does 19mpg [mine is the only one to be converted to LPG.]. It's a great car to drive & it's guarenteed to draw a crowd.

Pros: Unique Design

Cons: Realiability
