This Is What The DeLorean DMC-12 Could Look Like As A Modern-Day Supercar

Penned by renowned car, motorcycle, camera, and firearm designer, Giorgetto Giugiaro, the DMC DeLorean is an American sports car first released in 1981 that, despite a brief three-year production run, became a bonafide automotive icon when it was thrust into the cultural mainstream via its appearance in 1985’s Back to the Future. And with 2021 marking the DeLorean’s 40th anniversary, Spain’s Ángel Guerra has decided to bring the steel-bodied, gull wing-doored DMC squarely into the 21st century with a contemporary DeLorean concept.

Based in Seville, Guerra has spent the last dozen or so years working as an automotive designer—five of which were with Rimac Automobili—giving him the skills and resources needed to bring the modernized DMC12 to fruition. Guerra’s 2021 DeLorean retains the original car’s same front-hinged hood, rear gate, and gull-wing door design, though its boxy 1980s silhouette has been streamlined and transformed into a lower-profile shape, more in line with that of modern supercars. Guerra has also given the 2021 version a larger, more modern set of the DMC’s original Giorgetto Giugiaro-designed finned cast-alloy wheels.
