News A New Image of the DeLorean Evolved

A New Image of the DeLorean Evolved

The DeLorean Motor Company showed a new image of its EVolved concept, which should be revealed in August.

The rebirth of the DeLorean as an all-new electric car has fans of the 1980s sports car dreaming. The automaker hopes to enter the electric arena with a new exterior design – and hopefully better performance than the DMC-12 – but all indications are that some features of the classic model will return on the new car.

The DeLorean Evolved will be equipped with louvers, just like the DMC-12, according to the short video recently posted on the company’s Instagram account. What’s more, everything points to the fact that the letters D-E-L-O-R-E-A-N will be illuminated under the single marker light that runs across the body in the form of a thin red line. We also discovered that the car will have wider tracks than the narrowness of the cabin. We can therefore expect a car that is quite stable and grounded.

The design will be courtesy of Italdesign. The DMC-12 was designed by none other than Giorgetto Giugiaro.

DeLorean, which plans to unveil the concept vehicle at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later this summer, is probably hoping for a positive reaction to the concept, as it is indeed a styling study for now. However, we’re betting that the production model – if the project goes ahead of course – will retain many of the prototype’s details, provided the public likes what they see.

We also know that the Evolved concept will be equipped with gullwing doors, just like the original car, and it’s a safe bet that the powertrain will be more dynamic than the original Renault V6, a mill that delivered an anemic 132 horsepower!

We’ll know more in August when DeLorean lifts the veil on this modern version of the car.
