When John Z. DeLorean stepped down from his position as the general manager of Chevrolet in 1973, it was widely reported that DeLorean 'had fired General Motors'. Always ambitious and willing to try new things, the talented salesman and engineer was planning to go his own way with a new sports car, one that would be more technically advanced and have superior safety features. He called it 'the ethical sports car-for the bachelor who's made it'. Built in Northern Ireland, under an agreement with the British Government, the DMC-12 was styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro, of Italdesign. It featured distinctive gullwing doors and outer body panels of brushed stainless steel over a rear-engined, Renault-powered chassis and suspension that was largely based upon the Lotus Esprit. Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus, was then brought in to resolve any engineering issues. The first 500 production DeLoreans were ready for shipment in April 1981 and, at first, the model was a smash success, mainly due to its founder's fame and innovative design. Unfortunately, the success cooled quickly and the DeLorean Motor Company filed for bankruptcy in late 1982, after John DeLorean's well-publicised arrest on drug trafficking charges. He was eventually acquitted but it was too late to save his dream. Some 9,200 DeLoreans had been built with approximately 6,500 still in existence worldwide today.

Originally supplied to the USA, this unique vehicle is the last DeLorean DMC built in 1981. It is unique in that it only has delivery miles on the clock, a total of 24 miles. It has never been registered or driven on the road. It certificate of origin paper work shows that it was transferred by the DeLorean Motor Company to the DeLorean dealer in Newark, New Jersey USA on June 10th 1982 where it stayed locked away at the dealership until the present owner purchased it in November 2000 and shipped it to the UK where it was again locked away and stored in a warm dry garage for the next 15 years. The car is so unique it still has the factory fitted delivery and EPA stickers attached to the front windscreen. The vehicle comes complete with the original battery, tyres, wheels, owner's manual, tool kit etc. The car has had no modifications except to keep the fluids and oils fresh and the tyres maintained at factory pressures. This DeLorean is supplied with the certificate of origin, the C61 BTI customs form showing the BTI reference number needed for the NOVA certificate and a copy of the shipping invoice. This is an icon of the 1980s and probably the only DMC12 with delivery mileage in the world; a unique opportunity to purchase what can only be describe as motoring art.
