    DMC. Concept Takes DeLorean Back To The Future (VIDEO)

    The DeLorean DMC-12 was, for a brief but shining moment, the dream of the 1980s motorist. Eventually failed in the cold, hard, reality of bad business deals and sketchy engineering, the gullwing DeLorean has nevertheless refused to go away. The injection of stardom from Back to the Future and the motoring media’s near sycophantic obsession with the wild life of John Z. DeLorean have given the brand legs that wouldn’t have been believed in the darkest days of 1983.

    The iconic bodyshell of the DMC-12 has played host to powertrains ranging from high-output mills to electric motors; toys based on the car still crop on the regular; the model makes occasional appearances on screens of all kinds.

    It’s not shocking then, that the DeLorean is still inspiring young designers, as well. We ran across this rather interesting new take on the DMC brand recently, a DMC.Concept that imagines a car positioned as a luxury coupe in the 2014 marketplace. Designer Alex Graszk may not have anything like a path to production for his evocative machine, but we still like the cut of his cloth. The concept does not so much ape the DMC-12 styling that we’re all so fond of, but it does strike us as a realistic, modern interpretation of the values that guided the first car.

    Tell us how the fanciful DMC.Concept strikes you in Comments after scrolling below for a brief video.

    DMC teases 988hp Lamborghini Aventador Edizione GT

    DMC teases 988hp Aventador Edizione GT

    If the standard 700hp Lambo Aventador doesn’t hit the spot. German tuners DMC luxury has an insane $290k solution.
    Before you guys get too excited, this is still just a concept from German Tuners DMC Luxury and these images are just renders, but it still a freaking beast.

    Just like Lamborghini, the ‘LP’ number refers to the horsepower. Which means that DMC is about to release an Aventador with nearly 1,000hp.

    While the official ‘teaser’ announcement is unwilling to confirm that 988hp figure, it links through to DMC’s Flickr page, where corroboration is plain to see. Exactly how the power increase has been achieved remains a mystery at this stage, but at least the output goes some way towards justifying Edizione GT’s appearance.

    The bodykit alone is set to cost an eye-watering $89,990  while the proposed engine work – whatever it is exactly – has been priced at $134,530

    That’s a grand total of $288,888 all in. – roughly what we’re expecting Lamborghini to charge for an entire Huracan, the recently announced replacement for the Gallardo.

    Wow!
