I vote for a pair of 1.0EB's!! = 2.0inline6 with 300-400hp + couple/few hundred in battery-less electrics
The DeLorean Is Coming Back Thanks To This New Law,
Will Have 300-400 HP [UPDATED]
...UPDATE: I was finally able to talk to James Espey, the VP of the company, and while he couldn’t come out and tell me exactly what the new drivetrain would be, I did get a few good details:
• While GM is an engine option, they’re not the only ones. They’re looking at three possible suppliers, two domestic, one foreign. There’s one favorite though, and the engine that’s the frontrunner is a normally-aspirated V6 making between 300-400 HP. This seems to be the non-American company, and while the company wouldn’t comment, it may well be Japanese. It may be Toyota, but that’s just a guess.
Lotus already buys the Camry’s V6, right? They cram that into some tight areas. That 3.5-liter 2GR-FSE V6 used in the Lexus IS makes over 300 HP now; maybe that one?
• The center stack, HVAC, and some other ancillaries will be from the current-favorite supplier.
• Because it’s a rear-engine configuration, a transaxle setup will be used, though they would not tell me that supplier just yet.
• The new DeLorean will have bigger wheels, bigger brakes, and shocks from “a famous German supplier.” Bilstein?
This all sounds quite promising, and should really improve the character of the car, now that it has over twice as much power.
