The 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 is a rear-engined sports car featured in Forza Motorsport 3 as part of the Community Choice Classics Pack and in Forza Motorsport 4.

Description

Guess the car that was built in Northern Ireland, sports a brushed stainless steel body and gullwing doors, and starred in a science fiction movie that spent eleven weeks at #1 in the box office in 1985 (ironically, three years after it went out of production)? Clearly, only one car fits that description—the DeLorean DMC-12. The brainchild of John Z. DeLorean, the man behind Pontiac’s sporty success in the 1960s, the car held a lot of promise. There was the Giugiaro-designed body, chassis engineering by Lotus engineers, and those unmistakable styling features. It seemed to be the car of the future, for the 1980s, but unfortunately circumstances conspired to bankrupt the company before the DMC-12 had a chance to catch on. The DMC-12 was also let down by an engine weaker than DeLorean originally intended, so while it looks great, performance dead stock is less exciting. Decades after the last new DMC-12 rolled out of the Dunmurray factory, however, the unique sportscar has a loyal following and a dedicated enthusiast base that is happy to hop up cars to match DeLorean’s original vision of an unparalleled and unmistakable sportscar.

If the DeLorean hadn't existed, Tom Clancy would have had to invent it. This wasn't really a car―it was part of a bigger storyline that involved the British government, the feds and the silver-head antihero with some extremely odd ideas. The DeLorean itself was perhaps his oddest idea of all―an unpainted stainless steel sports car with gullwing doors and―thanks to a wheezing 130 horsepower Renault engine hanging off the back―almost no performance whatsoever. The DeLorean quickly developed a terrible reputation, and that only got worse when famous American owners got locked inside by the failing electrics. It was a disaster, and production ended before Steven Spielberg made it a time-travelling film star. If you want one now, there's a man in America who can build you a new DeLorean from old parts. But he won't build the real deal until he gets on the FBI Most Wanted list.
