This isn't the first time an artist from South America made a modern version of an internet hero. A while back, we showed you what the locally made Puma sports car would have looked like if given the same attention to detail (and money) as one of Singer's legendary Porsche 911 projects.
This supposedly restored DMC has lost its iconic brushed metal look and gained more attitude. The black paint hides much wider front and rear fenders, needed for the oversized wheels. Also, the body kit has been adjusted with more ground-hugging spoilers. We feel that if Chip Foose was asked to combine a DeLorean with a Pontiac Trans A, this is what it would look like minus the bird on the hood.
The Singer connection is felt the most when looking at the halo of the refreshed LED headlights or the exhaust tips. It's certainly not a subtle car. But what would you even use to power something like this?
John DeLorean used a 2.85-liter V6 engine, which at 130 horsepower was an underwhelming experience. Some kind of fire-breathing American V8 would be nice here, but the best thing for going Back to the Future would probably have to be a nice hybrid V6 or even a modern 911 Turbo system. Of course, putting something like this on the road would probably cost half a million or more.
