A new definition of 'overkill': DMC DeLorean monster truck

Posted on by 13

We have seen our fair share of wonderful and wacky DMC DeLorean’s throughout the years, with the original Back to the Future unit being a prime example. In addition to that, Matt Farah recently drove an upgraded DeLorean on Californian roads, while the company recently entered the American Le Mans Racing Series with what is now, an extremely out-dated and old-fashioned car. Even in its, it was already painfully slow.

Despite the fact that DMC could be planning an all-electric DeLorean for 2013 - although we have our doubts - a brave American tuner has turned his DeLorean into what’s unquestionably, the most extreme example we’ve seen to date.

Rather than simply fitting an uprated engine into the car and improving the body work, the shop depicted in the following video decided to mount the DeLorean’s 1981 body onto the frame of a 1979 Chevrolet K5 Blazer, before fitting a new 5.7-liter V8 engine. However, those changes are not what captured our attention. Not in the slightest.

The shop also decided to convert the DeLorean into a massive monster truck, fitting mind-blowingly large tires to it, as well as a new bull-bar and heavy-duty winch to create what could turn out to be the ultimate off-road machine.

What’s more, the following video also shows that the driver was brave enough to take the car onto the open roads, where an expensive Ferrari F430 almost became a victim of the DeLorean’s gargantuan size.

It goes without saying that this is the new benchmark of ‘overkill’ or ’awesome,’ depending on your taste.

What do you think about the ride of this car? It seems very dangerous for the beginners.

Oh, I’ve heard of this the other day ago! I was truly horrified to see this giant DeLorean. Fortunately, it spares the Ferrari on the suppose accident! It’s such a shame that it couldn’t get to show off its impressive specifications!

Oversized and giant wheels almost tear the Ferrari in half. I’m glad it didn’t happen, and he manages to spare that horse-marked car.

The DeLorean is just big as I thought. Those wheels could kill anyone who goes under it.

It’s much cooler if this DeLorean tests its skills with the Ferrari. He should run it up over, then it could be the best video after.

What if this DeLorean runs over the Ferrari, will it be flattened? I’m just wondering of its weight.

It’s good that he manages to prevent the Ferrari F430 from running towards it. It’s cool to watch and somehow thrilling.

Oops! He nearly over-headed the F430. It seems a great time driving in a higher platform.

It’s great to crush and smash cars with this DeLorean monster truck.

Oh, it has giant wheels. Now, I’m scared to ride that car. It’s like an alien ship smiley

It’s very catchy in the eyes. This DMC is just rearranged to form an expected, but not this kind of monster.

What could be the size of those wheels?

It’s too much for a 4WD. It’s really horrible at its sized, but it promises of a good performance in the off-road trip.
