A significant coincidence with a DMC12-DeLorean

I spent the first days of October 2015 exploring Berlin for the first time. I was biking in Mitte, on Axel-Springer-Straße, and all of a sudden a voice in my head urges me to look up to my right and at that moment I see a very beautiful 1981 DMC-12 DeLorean standing right in the middle of the park of the Axel-Springer building. What a coincidence to see one of my favorite cars there, waiting for me to photograph it and of course admire this piece of history that I’m sure we all know.

The Delorean was there because the owner is going to rent it for the event “The Back to the Future Day” on October 21, 2015, It’s the day when Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the future in their time machine, the DMC DeLorean. (Thank God cars don’t flight). I started to speak with the owner about the car and of course I asked him if is possible to see the car from inside and take some photos.

I was very excited, maybe you guys are wondering why? When I was a little kid, I had a neighbor in my hometown who made terrific parties all the time and the people would park the cars in the garden of the other houses. When I woke up in the middle of the night since the music was too loud, I went to the living room and I opened the window and one DMC-12 DeLorean was standing right in front of me in the garden; I thought I was dreaming. I called my mom saying: Mom Mom! It is the car from Back to the Future in our garden! Let’s go out please, but of course, it was around 3am and she said no. So, this was the first time that I ever saw one DeLorean. Instantly this car became my favorite and I always had the desire to take photos. Twenty years later, I had the experience to go inside and admire this incredible car.

The DeLorean DMC-12 was manufactured by the DeLorean Motor Company for the American market from 1981 to 1983 in Northern Ireland. The body design of the DMC-12 was a product of Giorgetto Giugiaro of Ital Design and is paneled in stainless steel. It is mostly known as the DeLorean, as it was the only model ever produced by the company. The DMC-12 featured gull-wing doors with a fiberglass “underbody”, to which non-structural brushed stainless steel panels are affixed.
