The American DeLorean DMC-12 car, which became famous for the movie "Back to the Future", went on sale in an Estonian thrift store in Kuressaare on the island of Saaremaa. This is reported by the Geenius edition.
Nothing is known about the mileage of the car and its history. Judging by the photo, the car is in good condition. Those wishing to buy the car will have to pay 55,000 euros. In a thrift store, a specially fenced place was allocated for the car next to the clothes and household items sold.
The first prototype of the future DeLorean DMC was developed in 1977 and featured a stainless steel body with lifting doors. The production version of the sports coupe was launched in Northern Ireland in 1981. As a result of a legal conflict with General Motors in 1982, the company was outsourced and declared bankrupt. The assembly of the model was discontinued in 1983. During this time, about 9 thousand DeLorean DMC-12 rolled off the assembly line of the enterprise. In 1985, the sports coupe gained worldwide fame after filming the first part of Back to the Future.
At the moment, about 6.5 thousand of these cars have been preserved in the world. The assets and brand are now owned by Stephen Wynne, who continues to build custom cars.
The car was equipped with a 2.85-liter V6 engine with 132 horsepower and 207 Nm of torque. The unit works in conjunction with a five-speed manual transmission. DeLorean DMC-12 accelerates to 100 km/h in 10.5 seconds. The maximum speed is 177 kilometers per hour.
