Description[]

The DeLorean DMC-12 was originally designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of ItalDesign in Turin, Italy. For the Mattel Hot Wheels release, the car was re-created by Manson Cheung; despite having sculpted many Hot Wheels into 3D models in the past this was his first Hot Wheels design.

In 1985, Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis made the car a pop-culture icon in the sci-fi classic Back to the Future, in which it is portrayed as a time machine.

This casting features an opening trunk. The casting was retooled in 2015, removing the opening trunk and gaining partially open side windows.

Back of Cards[]

2010[]

From the back of the 2010 card:

Born: 1981
Birthplace: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Designer: Giorgetto, Guigiaro, Italdesign
Specialty: Italian designed and British engineered, this American dream car with gull-wing doors, rear engine and stainless steel body was a sports car unlike anything else on the roads in the 1980s - or today!

2023[]

From the back of the 2023 Mattel Creations Collaboratory Card:

Live the dream and roam the open road in the most impressive automobile of the year. Embrace the future as gull-wing doors rise effortlessly, beckoning you inside for an otherworldly driving experience. This two-seater sports car features a rear-mounted engine, stainless-steel outer body, and electric windows.
Some vehicles not for use with some Hot Wheels® sets.

Trivia[]

  • The paint job and the tampos on the 2015 versions are a direct nod to the Turismo, the original 1981 Hot Wheels unlicensed DeLorean.
  • The 2018 police version is possibly a reference to a Mini 4WD kit released by the Korean model company Academy, which was a rerelease of their Back to the Future III kit (itself a licensed rerelease of an Aoshima kit) in an inexplicable police car scheme with raised suspension. [1]
