The DeLorean is back as an all-electric 2+2 grand tourer with striking looks signed by Italdesign and exhilarating performance. It’s called Alpha5 and it spearheads an entire lineup from the revived brand, which will include an electric sedan, hydrogen SUV and a V8 coupe.
As the photos can attest, the DeLorean Alpha5 is a major departure from the original DMC-12. It may retain details like the gullwing doors—a massive pair if we ever saw one—louvered rear glass, and vaguely similar taillights, but this is a completely different beast.
For starters, it’s a much larger car, measuring 196.6 inches (4,995 mm) in length, 80.5 inches (2,044 mm) in width, and 53.9 in (1,370 mm) in height. The wheelbase is also generous for a coupe, measuring 90.5 inches (2,300 mm).
Its massive gullwing doors are arguably the main highlight and the reason they are so big is to allow access to the rear seats. At the front, the Alpha5 displays sleek horizontal headlights and a sizable grille in the lower part of the bumper that sucks in air and directs it up to the sculpted hood. Elsewhere, the multi-spoke aerodynamic wheels and chunky rear diffuser will certainly not go unnoticed either.
