In-game description[edit | edit source]
"The series 2 DeLorean, tuned to the requests of owners."
John Z. DeLorean, who was the driving force behind Pontiac in the mid 1960's and the vice president of GM at the time, left GM at the end of the 1970's, and established his own car manufacturer.
DMC, or DeLorean Motor Company, set up base in Ireland. Its first mass-production model was the DMC-12. DeLorean's objective was to release a reasonably-priced, stylish sports car. However, as the recently-established DMC did not have the expertise to develop such a car, the design of the DMC-12 had to be outsourced.
As a result, the chassis was handled by Lotus, while the body design was undertaken by Italdesign. Chassis construction consisted of a Lotus-style steel backbone frame, with a new PRV SOHC V6 engine capable of 128 HP mounted in the rear. Its rustproof stainless steel body and gull-wing doors attracted a lot of attention.
While the DMC-12 recorded sales of 6,500 cars its first year of 1981, in the midst of this success DeLorean's president was arrested for suspicion of drug possession. This matter ended with a not-guilty verdict, but DMC tragically went bankrupt soon after, in 1983. Total production of the DMC-12 until this time was only 8,500.
After this, the engine inventory of the DMC-12s were shipped from Ireland to the U.S., and passed into the hands of a newborn DMC which would maintain the current model DeLoreans. This company, responding to the requests and demands of DeLorean owners, announced a tuning menu that increased engine power to 197 HP. DeLoreans equipped with this engine are known as Series 2.
