At least I think it is....


The name, which was DeLorean's idea, was inspired by the Ferrari 250 GTO, the successful race car. It is an Italian abbreviation for Gran Turismo Omologato, ("Grand Tourer Homologated") which means officially certified for racing in the Grand tourer class. The name drew protest from enthusiasts, who considered it close to sacrilege.

That would be John Z. DeLorean (creator of the gull wing car of the same name...as seen in the "Back to the Future" movies)
