Bold move, it was designed by because it was as esoteric as a stainless steel car at the time Giorgetto Giugiaro – I was also in charge of the beauty of Lotus Esprit, Volkswagen Golf Mk 1, BMW M1 and so on.

Soon, Foose will mention color. Avid readers will know that the DeLorean came in raw stainless steel only when it got hot from the press-yes, although the gold car they did was very limited. , So far I’ll elaborate on that. Leave Foose as it is, as tinkering with colors comes at the expense of borders.

The main works he focused on were the Rubik’s Cube taillights and the rubberized front fascia. Another focus was the rear bumper area, which he smoothed and modified with steel. After finally removing the rubber here and there, the fuse was complete. It’s a very simple change, but all together produce impressive results.

The chip leaves the claim that it may have been a timeless vehicle with minor changes.
