# 1 STUNNA!!!!

Yes Yes Y'all -The Delorean is BACK!!!

According to this article on the LA Times the venerable 'Back to The future' car will be built again in limited numbers of around 20 cars per year.

I always liked the DeLorean DMC-12 with its gull wing doors and shiny stainless steels exterior. It was made famous in the Back to the Future trilogy as the time traveling super car. DeLorean had quite a chequered history as a maker of the DMC-12. With the British government pumping millions of pounds into the company because it was employing Irish locals at a time of great unemployment. John DeLorean died in 2005 and he probably became more infamous for the money laundering and Cocaine episode than for the car itself. Unfortunately the whole DeLorean saga became a huge embarrassment for the British government of the day as they made a costly gamble with tax payer money.

Only 9200 DeLorean DMC-12's were built but apparently over 6000 still survive.
