Wow !

Makes you realise what good value GTA's are.

Amazing what demand has been created by a crooked yank with a failed company :crazy. The car was slow, didnt handle & was unreliable. Panned in the press when it was launched.

If it was not for the film.... they would have been forgotten years ago. Films and TV shows make a huge effect upon what we desire. Still I would not say no to one, if I had the chance.

I also noticed a Venturi in the background of this youtube video with a De Lorean getting new wheels... Nice wheels BTW!

Its at the end timer 58 seconds if you want to skip to see it.
Just wonder if it was someone we knew?

I imagine that it was Martins car, as his Venturi was grey and it's his video. Not sure who owns it now.

The Delorean was probably OK value seeing how much a tidy one can fetch. Lowish mileage too.

They seem to be much more expensive over here. Half the price in the states.

Those big wheels on that Delorean just look so wrong. I would have gone for 17 and 16 inch personally.
