I'm a Dubai resident. And actually the journalist who wrote a story about this very car three years ago.

Congrats on the car - and nice article... although if yours won't go past 80mph you should probably have a bit of a look at it! :D 120+ more normal for unfettled manuals.

Well balanced piece. There is a love/hate thing with a Delorean! :lol:

It is strange that the speedo only went to 85mph. Most-all cars/bike always over-estimate what is really possible.
What is the best/bang for buck way of getting some hp increases?
I've got a sport exhaust already.

DMCH's James Espey's comments at the bottom serve as a nice set of corrections for the most common fallacies.

I cringe looking back at it now, as all writers are wont to do!

In the hope that Iggy sees this:

is this your car, or is there another in Dubai -

at the Jumaira Lake Towers, apparently, if you know where that is

it has a gas flap hood, whereas yours had a grooved, but of course that could have been changed.
