21/1/81: first DeLorean DMC-12

On 21 January 1981, the first DMC-12 model car created by the DeLorean company rolled off the production line in Dumurry in Northern Ireland.

Its sharp, furturistic design made it ideal for the Back to the Future films (1985, 1989, 1990), where it was made into a souped-up 'time machine' for film characters Marty McFly and 'Doc'.

The DMC-12 was in fact the only model ever produced by the DeLorean company and as such also became known as "the Delorean".
