Ein Delorean Hovercraft auf eBay

Auf Ebay gibt es gerade einen funktionstauglichen Delorean Hovercraft. Die Kiste soll für 45.000 Dollar über den virtuellen Warentisch gehen. 10% des Verkaufs gehen an die The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research.


What you get:
1. Hand-built Hovercraft sculpted to look exactly like a Delorean. This is a functional work of art, it is not a Delorean bolted onto a hovercraft. There’s only one in the world!

2. Custom flatbed tilting trailer built specifically for this hovercraft

3. Miscellaneous spare parts and supplies including spare engine parts, fans and propellers, nuts and bolts.

4. Free phone consultations with me for any technical questions you might have…

The Hovercraft is based on the blueprints for the Universal Hovercraft UH-13PT. The basic shape of the hull, skirt, and fan ducts come from those blueprints, but pretty much everything else is customized. The Delorean body is made out of styrofoam wrapped in fiberglass and painted with metallic paint. The 36” thrust fan is powered by a 23hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard riding lawnmower-style engine. The 24” lift fan is powered by a B&S 875 Professional series push mower engine. The hull of the craft hovers about 6-8 inches over the surface, and can hover over anything relatively flat: land, water, ice, snow, sand, asphalt, etc. The top speed with the current thrust configuration is 31 mph on the water in good conditions.

Ein DeLorean, der 32 Jahre lang kein Licht gesehen hat, wird geborgen

Der Erstbesitzer hatte sich wohl dazu entschieden, das Teil dann doch mal zu verkaufen. Müsste ein wenig poliert werden, zwei bis drei Beulen müssten rausgedengelt werden und irgendwer müsste mal ordentlich durchsaugen, aber dann geht der vielleicht noch.

Me and my dad came across our third DeLorean this past weekend. It was a must. We knew we didn’t need a third but something about seeing a DeLorean that hasn’t seen light since 1986 speaks to you. Join me as we take this beautiful car from dust to life.

DeLorean 2017

Die DeLorean Motor Company lässt mitteilen, sie wird im Jahr 2017 300 neue DeLoreans in die Autohäuser dieser Welt bringen. Billig werden die nicht, der Preis wird aktuell unter $100K taxiert. Die Originale, von denen 1982 um die 9000 verkauft wurden, kosten aktuell $45,000 – $55,000.

News reports out of Humble, Texas, say the automaker plans to make about 300 replicas of the 1982 DeLorean that has not been in production for 34 years. The company has remained in business by refurbishing old DeLoreans — about 9,000 were originally sold — for enthusiasts.

“It’s fantastic. It is a game-changer for us. We’ve been wanting this to happen,” DeLorean CEO Stephen Wynne told TV station KPRC2 in Houston, saying it is possible under a new low-volume manufacturing bill approved by the federal government. “That was a green light to go back into production.”

Wynne said he wants to build about four cars a month.

Refurbished DeLoreans cost $45,000 to $55,000. The replicas will cost closer to $100,000 when they go on sale in early 2017.

„Hol den DeLorean, lass uns damit zurückfahren“. Aye.
