If Marty McFly Was A Bosozoku…

…This might just be what he’d drive.

Rudder International is the company behind this one-of-a-kind DeLorean DMC-12, a car that we came across a few years back in this very same location – the Yokohama Pacifico exhibition center – but at the Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show.


In the time since then and this year’s Nostalgic 2days event, this custom creation – which was built as a demo machine for the car reseller – has continued to evolve.


Since I first saw the bulbous stainless steel integrated fender flares, attention has been given to the rear with forged carbon louvers, a Z07-style clear deck spoiler and that unmissable rear diffuser.


The Martini Racing livery really highlights the DeLorean’s extra width.


And the addition of turbofan-like wheel covers do wonders for the overall look.


That’s because they completely hide the chrome wheels they’re attached to, an original design choice that didn’t really fit to me. Of course, wheels are subjective, but the mesh design illusion that the covers bring really does make a big difference.


Once the covers (silver on the passenger side) are off you can see just how concave they are.

Taking a closer look at the DMC-12 in its entirety, you’ll see that the one-off stainless steel aero includes a lower front bumper section fitted with a lip spoiler.


There are also chunkier side skirts – with integrated NACA ducts – to help bring the car closer to the ground.


The interior has seen a true transformation. There’s no flux capacitor or digital year/day/time panel so Marty might be a bit lost in here, but the reupholstered cabin makes this DeLorean so much more special. If you’ve ever seen what the DMC-12’s stock interior looks like, you’ll know what I mean.

The car runs an Air Lift Performance air suspension system, and its digital controller is easily accessible on the transmission tunnel.


You really get a good look at just how imposing the diffuser fins are from this angle. The fabricated lower bumper section also houses a Lexus LFA-like custom triple exhaust, of which I guess the two top exhausts are for the PRV V6 and the lower a screamer pipe for the nuclear setup.

OK, I promise no more Back To The Future references, but do stay tuned for my overall look at the 2022 Nostalgic 2days event.

hey dino . fan of yours from india . ive been reading your articles for ages , it fuels my passion for low rides . i am underage to own a car , but your articles are a fun substitute . keep making more :)

Dino Dalle Carbonare

Thanks man, awesome to hear and don't worry sooner or later you'll have your own car!


i never though i need to see a Martini racing DMC with turbo fans wheels covers, they've transformed the build completely.


Awesomeness, but instead of Martini stripes I definitely would have gone for Atari or Spectrum

Dino Dalle Carbonare

Hey David! I have to say, you are totally right on that one!




This car is nowhere near bosozoku! With these VW style drain cover wheels, what the hell?!?!


True, but real bosozoku isn't anything to behold either. Regardless, they'll let anybody write anything now.


Man imagine if this thing was the Time Machine it would have been the coolest thing ever!

Dino Dalle Carbonare

Well if Hollywood brings the trilogy back from the dead they have car


I love how performance-oriented and good-looking this build is. It really shows what hard work and originality can do for a build. The comedically large polished chrome wheels and fake turbofan covers that do absolutely nothing and the diffuser that looks like it was made from the memory of an 8 year old really ties in with the stretched tires and the NACA duct that creates excess pressure underneath the body, makes for a very *tasteful* and *useful* car with a *legitimate purpose.*

I'll bet the power output is just phenomenal too.

Dino Dalle Carbonare

We don't need to talk about power haha. Mind you DMC is presenting a new EV DeLorean this year


We don't need to talk about "builds" like this at all

good article, lousy subject

Jeffrey Miller

Looks like someone threw a bunch of trends at a car without attention to detail or quality.

Martini livery could be cool on a DeLorean if someone did it right. This ain't it.

Dino Dalle Carbonare

I'd say there are having a bit of fun. Nothing wrong with that right?


Wow that thing is kool , thanks for sharing


Love the interior with the Ferrari-esque Daytona seat pattern and the gated shifter.

+1000 to the Atari livery idea.


No engine shot?
Don't tell me it still has that silly V6 back there?

Dino Dalle Carbonare

Shhhh, let's not talk about engines! This thing needs to go to RE Amemiya for a 20B swap!


I'm listening...


I love how this build is done with equal parts expertise and humor. The DeLorean was all-show, no-go even in it's prime; a beautiful design with nothing to back it up. This build sort of exemplifies the idea to the Nth degree. The next step, of course, is a full carbon-fiber body and a Tesla powerplant. 1.21 Gigawatts!!!

Dino Dalle Carbonare

And that's it right there, it's all a bit of fun!


they said the b- word

Stainless steel is done deal. I wish someone gonna do a full carbon DeLorean.
Then we'll call it "Back to the Lightness"

Dino Dalle Carbonare

A non-stainless steel DeLorean wouldn't look right IMO. There are pictures of a couple of painted ones around and they just look wrong!


This Thing looks dope.
How cool would it be with "MartyMcFly Racing" instead of "Martini Racing"?
Martini is in my opinion better for rally etc... lowered cars with martini-decals (and the rear end of this thing) arent my cup of tea.
But it is a nice build and, in a silly way, i like what i see.


Delorean's seem to be a thing lately...

Dino Dalle Carbonare

And they'll be more of a thing after their re-launch later this year


Cool build! Interior is looking 1000% better than original & Salvage2salvage DMC at SEMA2021!
