The DeLorean DMC-12 (commonly "the DeLorean"), was the only model ever produced by the company DeLorean Motor Company, owned by John DeLorean. It was a sports car for the American market from 1981 to 1983. It became iconic for its appearance and immortalized as the DeLorean time machine in the Back to the Future media franchise.
On the plus side it's the frickin' time machine, it's got that awesome Giorgetto Giugiaro-penned design with gullwing doors, and it looks great in bare stainless steel. On the downside: it's underpowered, features mediocre handling, and everyone will ask you if you've got enough road to get up to 88 mph. Still. You know it's cool.
