Looks like they did what all of us are doing. I read somewhere that they lowered it 1.5" as well.

They sure did. It is a beautiful car but they didn't change the body up too much. It looks like the Se body with some customizing done to it. But besides that it is a beautiful car. And it'* gonna be fast too.

I heard that they're not planning on releaseing it.. it'* just a concept... could be wrong though. I had a picture of it and thru photoshop slammed it down even more. It looks way sweeter. I"d like to know about the rotors that comes with it though.. if we can get it or not... or if they're cheaper than the powerslots ( powerslots are great.. just can't justify spending twice as much more for them )

No Drifter, your right... Right now they have no intentions at all of releasing it. It was just a concept car that they built a few of for shows only, etc.. to turns heads in Pontiacs direction. I think it would be awesome if they did release it though, I'd be first in line to get one next year, but after talking to them both on the phone and via e-mail, I highly doubt that will happen. :(

It'* JUST a concept at present. BUT YOU CAN make one yourself really. All it is, is a decked out SSEi. I would rather get that 300HP Plus Bonneville that raced at the Bonneville Salt Flats!

"On Aug. 16, 2001, a Pontiac Bonneville SSEi barreled through the timing traps on the Bonneville Salt Flats at 202.524 mph, making it the first front-wheel-drive production car to exceed 200 mph. "

This was 600hp. Let'* get some groceries, guys, real fast.

And a bigger trunk than a Saab

Contact your local DeLorean Dealer, I'm sure they have them in stock... very common item.

Random thought.

One time when I was driving through madison Wisconsian I saw a DeLorean that had been painted red.

This guy even painted the wheels red I have no clue wtf he was thinking.
