OK - there are a slew of DeLoreans that are considered
special (not that EVERY DeLorean is not special, but these are special
for different reasons).
I have just started working on writing up this page, so
there is not a lot of info here yet, but check back soon!
gold car information to come - in the meantime, check
out the AMEX Christmas ad that made the Gold Cars possible.
VIN 502 - The only "production" twin-turbo De
Lorean to come out of the factory. VIN 502 Was the first
production car out of the factory (not delegated to testing and their
ultimate demise in crash tests, training, etc.). . . although I recently
saw VIN 500 in a museum in Cleveland. Under the direction of John De
Lorean, VIN 502 was sent to Legend Industries to have work done on
the development of a turbo charged engine. Even as the car was
just starting it's production run, De Lorean knew that there would be a
need for a more powerful engine, and wanted a turbo available to serve
as a possible "GT" option. I hope to have more
information here in the near future.
The first production DeLorean - it now lives at the
Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland, Ohio
