31: DeLorean DMC-12
Perhaps the most hyped sports car in history was the DMC-12. You’ve seen it in “Back to The Future” like the rest of us, but its real-world performance was not that great. The DMC-12 was a mixture of exciting design and some aspects that were still new to the automotive industry. The gullwing doors were a nice touch but the dashboard wasn’t intuitive and the reliability of the car was questionable at best.
Given the limited constraints of the DeLorean, there was not much that a new buyer could do to modernize the car. The company then went bankrupt shortly after and these things have become quite the item of prestige. There is now a company that manufactures new models, but the DMC-12 didn’t live up to the hype.
