[spoiler]shamless double post is shameless.
Luceat Studios presents a one-off concept sponsored by DeLorean Motor Company.
Named the DMC-17, the “new” DeLorean was in development for 8 months. Designed with the essence of the original DeLorean, the new DMC-17 has a rear-mounted V6 engine. However, unlike the DMC-12, this V6 is a VR38DETT from a Nissan GT-R R35 mated to a 6-speed DCT, producing 530 HP at 6400 RPM. Rear-engined and rear-wheel drive, the bespoke platform created by our engineers can handle normal everyday driving duties just like a regular car. The suspension components are made for docile manners, but at high speeds the drive becomes engaging and exciting.
The design, of course, was one of the most controversial parts of the new car’s development. Iconic gullwing doors and a long, low body help emphasize the DMC-17’s heritage. The upper rear valence, with it’s LED strip rear taillights and special Back To The Future-inspired “rocket vents” on top of the rear deck, showcases the iconic “DMC” logo whilst the bottom takes cues from the classic DMC-12 and modern super cars. A single center rear exhaust accentuates these small details. The low, blunt front hood is highly inspired by the very car which popularized DeLorean. The stark and straightforward body lines evoke those of the 80’s car yet are applied in a way which is fresh and modern. Split-beam headlights are also evocative of the original DeLorean. “Aerial” side vents provide extra cooling to the rear-mounted twin-turbocharged V6.
We hope you enjoyed our presentation of this limited-production DeLorean DMC-17. Remember, if you’re in the market to get a vehicle designed, we are still open to business inquiries.
