It’s Sunday! That is indeed a 24-karat gold plated DeLorean. And no, it doesn’t belong to our egomaniac president. Aside from its redemption in Back to the Future, the DeLorean became a symbol of ’80s excess and because of its larger-than-life founder, John DeLorean. This is a story about a man who had it all—money, drugs, cars and the desire to build a car to rival the exotics like Ferrari and Lamborghini. Nothing represents this better than the three DMC-12s that were plated in 24-karat gold.
