Delorean DMC-12 unofficial 2012 concept by joulester Delorean DMC-12 unofficial 2012 concept by joulester
I am a big fan of the Delorean DMC-12. Even without Doc Brown's time-machine modifications to it, in my humble opinion, it is a very handsome car with very innovative proportions. I like the the twin rectangular headlamps, which makes me think of the eyes of a gentle and friendly pooch, pleasantly contrasted with a side profile that resembles a ferocious wolf on the hunt.

Like many other artists who've already done so, I took a whack at re-designing the DMC-12, or more accurately in my case here, designing a more current DMC-12. The heavy challenge is to retain most of the original DMC-12's features and 'handsomeness' as much as possible while trying to push for fresh looks. I looked into the design language of Lamborghini and my other favourite car maker Audi for first-choice references, because I find that these three share certain, if not many, similarities.

I admit that this turned out not as bold as many other concept designs that are already out there today. I'm no expert in the field of automotive design, but, great scott! Can I not dream? =P

This is an on-and-off, two-months long labor - the actual hands-on work taking 2 weeks with the bulk of that time spent doing research and sketches. All in between my day job, totally drawn and colored in Photoshop CS5.

Thanks for having a look! =D

This is very stylish! I love how the you incorporated the old taillights into the new car and those futuristic slick wheels are just sick, this could be a real thing!

Straight to my favorites no doubt :3

Awesome! Thank you very much.

Yea I was aiming towards something produce-able with this, while also incorporating outlandish features. Glad I did not lose the DMC-12 original taillights!

A thing I like about this redesign is, unlike other concepts I've seen, it updates it without making it look too much like a Lambo :) It's still more distinct in its design.

"Great Scott" This is amazing and as I look at the design I noticed that it looks like something from TRON.

The TRON vehicles are breathtaking indeed, lots to learn from the masters in the industry.

Strange this - the latter design looks akin to concept vehicles being made!!

Must admit this is a very sweet looking motor concept by you sir - and the time version is smooth as expected!

Super work sir - especially the tires :D

Thank you! =D My favourite part is the tyre, too! It came as a last minute idea, especially the non-moving hubcap with the logo in the center.

Ahh, I think my car designs are always 10 years behind compared to what's being done nowadays. Just look at things like the Lamborghini Ankonian! :eyepopping: My brain muscle always go weak thinking up car concepts. I don't know how those auto designers pull it off.

But this was a joy to do, nonetheless. Happy that you like it, always glad to draw for audiences like yourself! :aww:

Wow, friend, I must say that your version looks super! I love the shape in your design, the sharp lines, the steep geometrical angles, the aggressive look. The brake lamps in your design look really up-to-date and innovative. Doc Brown would surely love to get his hands on your model!

Thanks for sharing! =)

I am sure that there are plenty of us who would pay someone to build this car, who knows how this car would have advanced if the DMC company was still around or what other vehicles they would have branched out to making? How about maybe a DMC 12 S or R with a turbo charger. Imagine bursting through time if Doc Brown would have put NOS in it. They would have reached that 88 MPH much faster.
