While it’s said that Delorean had ~3 cars painted upon entering America, this is not one of those cars. It was originally used as a dealer demonstrator in 1981, and then the dealership had it painted red with black stripes along the sides in 1982 before selling it in March. It was parked in ‘96 and sat until someone bought it in 2017. That guy touched up the paint and stripes and restored it mechanically, so aside from some minor wear on the seats, it’s practically good as new.
I gotta say, I really like it in this color. I know the bare stainless steel look is super iconic, but I always wondered what it would look like in actual color. And it looks GOOOOOOD. It just wears that color so well.
