    DeLorean DMC-12
    The DMC-12 is DeLorean Motor Company's first and only production car. Its production lasted only 2 years and is to this day probably the most controversial vehicle ever known. Only ~9000 were built but they're known worldwide for their incredible story and appearance in what is considered to be the greatest film ever made.

    This is my first go at making a scratch production car. I've been working on it for the last 4 months now and I think it's ready for its first release.

    - Scratch-made model : I made the model myself using Blender and finding as much reference as possible on the internet. The only things I reused are BeamNG assets when needed.

    - Back to the Future versions (WIP) : What made the car so iconic is probably the Back to the Future movies, so I couldn't skip the opportunity to make a working time machine in Beam. (This is still heavily WIP, but it will be made and will be as accurate to the movies as possible.)
    Yes, it time travels. No, it doesn't work perfectly yet. Yes it will eventually :)
    (and yes it'll have the flying one from the second movie and about everything you can think of that's back to the future related)

    - Twin-Turbo versions : Legend Industries was hired to build 5000 TT DeLoreans for 1984. Unfortunately DMC went bankrupt in 1983 (causing Legend to go bankrupt as well) and so TT DeLoreans never came to fruition. Based on various pics and info I could find, I did my best to recreate those kits.

    - Scratch-made Jbeam : No, this is not just a Bolide under the skin ; the entire Jbeam is made from scratch by me, only reusing minor bits from vanilla vehicles where I needed to. It's been a great experience and, honestly, I'm pretty proud. Jbeaming this was way different than I originally thought.
    Everything has been thought of : from the double-Y frame to the individual body panels.

    - V8 version
    - Race parts
    - Various engine parts
    - Automatic configs
    - 2 spoilers
    - 2 wheel types (Early 1981 wheels, late 1981-83 wheels)
    - EU-spec version
    - Late/early hoods
    - Late/early rear bumpers

    Will this be released on the repository?
    No. One of the reasons is that the Back to the Future stuff is trademarked, the other one is that I don't want to remove the DeLorean brand

    Will it be colorable/have the gold version?
    No.

    Is it skinnable?
    No

    Will you make the prototype DeLorean?
    No

    Will you make a Back to the Future version?
    Yes, a back to the future version is planned. It was originally supposed to be released in the first version of the mod but I decided otherwise.

    Awesome! :cool:
    I can't wait to download this on the repo, color it, use the gold version, have the doors open with Lua, skin it with UVs, ask for it's release date and download it with a link on this thread right now!
    Very cool!

    What if those eggs were green and had a side of triangular ham? Did you think about that?

    Will it have the prototype version? I assume not as you’d have to change a lot but I would like to know

    Why wouldn't it?

    No, the prototype version is basically a completely different car and there's not enough reliable information about it
