What futuristic gull-winged car became a real-life prototype in 1976?
DMC, or DeLorean Motor Cars to some, was created with a lick and promise by an engineer previously employed by General Motors. The late '70s at DMC were spent reconfiguring the DMC-12 prototype in several ways, including engine placement and door functionality. At the end of 1979, the DMC-12 was given the green light for production. Delay after delay unfolded, and the first DeLorean didn't roll off the assembly line until January 1981. Even though the first mass-market version of the DeLorean wasn't available for purchase until 1981, it was still a deeply rooted '70s car. It can be seen in the film "Back to the Future."
