The DeLorean DMC-12 was a sports car manufactured by the DeLorean Motor Company from 1981–83. The car features gullwing doors and an innovative fibreglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis, along with external brushed stainless steel body panels. It became widely known and iconic for its appearance, and it was modified to represent the concept of a time machine in the Back to the Future movie franchise.
The first prototype appeared in October 1976 and production officially began in 1981 in Dunmurry, a suburb of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Over the course of production, several features of the car were changed, such as the hood style, wheels, and interior. In total around 9,000 DMC-12s were made before production halted in early 1983.
