De Lorean DMC-12

de lorean

De Lorean, the 80’s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released.

The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.

Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

    That is so cool.

    I’m no car buff but I was a teenager when the BTTF films came out, I’d love to see one of these.

    Shame it didn’t have all the gubbins sticking out the back… :)

    I remember those cars being made in Dunmurray right beside Jack’s office. Seeing the name Makro on the building now as I drive along the M1 somehow doesn’t have the same ring to it!

    I like the face wash Donncha! ;)

    I always remember the DeLorean due to the cocaine trafficking charges brought against DeLorean himself, and the subsequent jokes made about the hollow doors in the cars (ideal for smuggling).
