Best of all, it's same enough to fit in the pocket of your sheepskin coat. - Classic & Sports Car. It lasted just over two years of dreams of John Zachary DeLorean, vice president of General Motors (USA), from 1981 to 1983; in that period around 9000 cars were produced, most of them for the American market. Only one model with only two choices: 3 automatic gears or 5 manual gears; single colour, anodised steel, grey or black interiors. A single engine, the six-cylinder PRV (Peugeot-Renault-Volvo) of 2850cc.
