First in production from 1981, the DMC-12 was the DeLorean motor company’s only major sports car for the US market. Well noted for its broad design and iconic ‘gull wing’ style doors, there is of course one thing that this now iconic model is known for which we’ll come to in due course.
However, the DMC-12 proved a tough sell in all senses of the word. With a 2849cc engine pumping 130 bhp, a top speed of 130 mph, and acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in 8.3 seconds, compared to other similar cars of the time it wasn’t exactly a speed demon.
It was this, plus many other contributing factors that led to DeLorean being shuttered altogether after it went into liquidation in 1982, with only 9,000 of the original DMC-12 models ever being produced.
Booking a DMC-12 Driving Experience
If you're purchasing an open gift coupon for a DeLorean package, double-check the validity term, as certain DeLorean vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer activation and usage duration, which will be clearly indicated on the voucher.
If you book a DeLorean Experience straight onto a date, please keep in mind that you are making a reservation request, and the day and time you choose are still subject to availability. We typically confirm reservations within 48 hours, but it's critical that you don't make any plans related to your reservation until you get a final confirmation email. When you make a booking request, you will get an instant receipt. This is not the confirmation.
Another essential factor to consider when buying DeLorean Experiences is that the driver fulfils all age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria. Each event will have its own set of criteria, so be sure you've read all of the essential details.
If an experience is exclusively for younger drivers, we will generally indicate it in the package name, although this is not always the case. If you book a DeLorean Experience and the driver does not fulfil the criteria on the day of the experience, they will most likely not be able to drive and will be offered a passenger ride instead.
At Trackdays, we're dedicated to making the booking experience as easy and straightforward as possible. From the time they make a reservation to the moment they get behind the wheel, we want our clients to have the greatest possible experience! The first step is to provide a range of booking alternatives.
If you're making a reservation for yourself, have a look at our live date booking system. Because we are the only voucher provider in the UK that offers live reservations, you can choose the precise day and time that suits you and have your experience guaranteed! This unique feature is ideal for people who know when they are free and want to plan something. Remember once you are in the DMC-12 if you decide you actually wanted to go on a different day - you can simply travel back in time and re-book.
Alternatively, if you're reserving for a loved one or a friend, one of our open date coupons would be ideal. These are a fantastic present since they allow a genuine car lover to arrange a DeLorean experience on a day that suits them. In any case, these vouchers are the ideal present for any ardent driver, so don't delay in booking your DeLorean driving experience with Trackdays.
