Jay Leno reviews the DMC-12

Some of you all might know that Leno wasn't a fan of the DMC-12 after John's whole cocaine debacle (in fact he said he'd never drive one). Well..he borrows one..and he drove it:
http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/at-the...n-rides-again/

And apparently the folks at the current DMC are working on a SUPERCHARGED version of the DMC and trying to get 250HP out of it.
While not much..keep in mind this is out of a almost 30 year old 2.8L V6 pushing a 2700lb vehicle.

EDIT: Btw, the one he tests is a 3spd auto with the normal (non-performance) V6. Which I think is around 150 since they don't have all of the 80's emmissions crap on it. So he's testing the slowest of the slow.
EDITx2: Though it DOES have the Eibach proper ride-height springs on it..so that helps the ride out.

The "performance" engine is around 190-195..and they said in the video they're working on a SC'd one that'll get around 250.
That's really not bad out of a 30 year old 2700lbs car.

Oh he's not by himself in rebuilding these things.
And they already bought the Solstice/Sky setup.

They'll probably get a plant when they need one. It won't be out for a while yet so no need for a money-sucking plant...yet.

I laughed when I heard Leno ask the owner if he bought the car brand new or if it was a car he sent to the rebuilder to restore and the owner says "I bought it as a BRAND NEW CAR...on the internet" Leno does a double take and kinda laughs and says "The internet huh?" Knowing full well at that point the guy wasn't an original DMC owner, he just goes on with the interview in a professional style.....

Either that or he didn't know that you can order them from Delorean.com.
