DeLorean DMC-12 HISTORY
The first prototype was DeLorean DMC-October 12, 1976. The prototype, which was completed by William T. Collins, former chief engineer in Pontiac, brought color to the American automotive industry. Peugeot - Renault and Volvo used V6 as the engine choice. Although the start of factory construction in October 1978 and the production of DMC-12 in 1979, engineering problems were delayed until 1981 for various reasons, such as budget overruns. When production began in 1981, local residents sourced from the high unemployment rate in Northern Ireland flocked to the job application and ran for the DMC-12, which made a big impact. Even though the workers were inexperienced in the big way, premium payments were made and the best equipments were introduced to them. Later, DeLorean Motor Company, John DeLorean, demanded an arrest for drug trafficking charges that year and went bankrupt in late 1982. Although he was later found guilty, there was a delay in the production of the DMC-12. Between 1981 and 1982, about 1600 DMC-12 were produced.
