DMC ultimately filed for bankruptcy in October of 1982, just a few days after founder and auto industry legend John DeLorean was arrested for drug trafficking charges. Quality control issues hurt the brand significantly in its heyday, and structural problems within the company allowed for worthless books and records keeping. Owners and enthusiasts alike were the ones that came together to approximate the number of DeLoreans produced, because the company had nothing. The DeLorean was also universally panned for its weak performance figures, but the stunning Giugiaro design and its usage in the Back to the Future franchise earned the car a cult following that will certainly give the DeLorean legs to stand on for decades to come. So much so, that an EV under the same name is currently in early stages of development. Today’s example needs touching up both inside and out, and for that reason we believe the car’s value lies somewhere between $30,000 and $50,000.
