The new Texan owner of the DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) has been trying to bring back the 80s icon and had announced its plan to build new DeLorean DMC-12s next year. Now that you can reserve a spot on the buyer’s list, it seems that the ‘Back to the Future’ car is coming back in the future for sure.

The American ruling last December that allows a rerun of more than 25 years old cars only for small time manufacturers has made it possible. But before you jump in the air with glee, there are a few glitches the return of the DeLorean faces. The company is yet to source a new engine that will fit in the old chassis design and meet the new stringent emission norms. The underpinnings have to be redesigned accordingly and will certainly take some time to fall into place.

But looking at the developments, it seems the comeback of the DeLorean will not be too far but the price tag might turn out to be. Pegged at about $1,00,000 (Rs 65 lakh in India) we do not really think of it as a steep price to own an adorable piece of history.
