The DeLorean DMC-12 is a cultural icon and has cemented itself into a weird, corner niche for many auto enthusiasts. Unfortunately, despite is pseudo time traveling capabilities, it was never that fast.
But, an LS swap will fix that. Regular Car Reviews had a chance to climb behind the wheel of this 5.3-liter LS4 swapped DeLorean DMC-12, complete with a manual gearbox. The original Renault gearbox, we might add.
And it’s apparently quite lovely, with the LS4 providing a ballpark of 300-plus hp to scoot the gull-winged icon around.
There’s a lot of engineering going on here to make this happen, so press play above to see how it all came together.
