The reborn DeLorean Motor Company has opened up applications for pre-orders of its modernised DMC-12 reproductions.
Get your ‘Great Scott!’ memes primed and ready, as we have some very good DeLorean news to bring you today: you can now sort of reserve an all-new DMC-12.
That’s right, all new. It’s all thanks to a new, separate company taking the rights to the DeLorean Motor Company name, plus a massive inventory of parts which should allow it to make around 300 modernised reproductions of the rear-engined DMC-12.
So, why “sort of” reserve? Because you can’t quite pre-order one at this stage. The company opened up a “Pre-Order Interest Application “this week, clarifying that:
“We are now accepting applications from those with an interest in being placed on a reservation list to purchase one of the low-volume DeLorean cars. Because the standard and optional feature list is still being finalized, these are non-binding expressions of interest only. Respondents will be given first notification and priority before the ordering process is opened to the general public.”
