DeLorean’s Next Radical Idea Was This Never-Before-Seen Engine

These notes and sketches, written in DeLorean’s own hand, were acquired by Sam Hill of the DeLoreanWiki, and Hill has agreed to let us publish them exclusively here on Jalopnik. They had previously been in the hands of DeLorean’s patent lawyer. Jalopnik has confirmed, through another respected DeLorean authority, that the handwriting does in fact appear to be DeLorean’s own, and we are confident because of the source that these documents are likely genuine. It’s not exactly known what the eventual plans are for this engine, or if it was even being considered as a replacement for the PRV V6 that ended up powering the DMC-12. There’s no real way to know how powerful an engine this would have been, or even what sort of size.
