Craigslist posted an ad for the sale of a one-seat, six-cylinder car called the DeLorean DMC Logan T-40. For a tractor designed for towing aircraft, they ask for only $ 2,500, or about 190 thousand rubles.
- The seller claims that the 1982 car is equipped with a 3.7-liter engine paired with an automatic transmission and is generally functioning perfectly, although the fuel tank needs to be cleaned. In addition, the DeLorean DMC Logan is equipped with new tires. Previously, the tractor was used at one of the US Air Force bases in New Hampshire.
- Motor1 clarifies that DMC, founded by John DeLorean in 1975, acquired a specialized equipment manufacturer called Thiokol in the late 70s and renamed the company Logan Manufacturing Company. The T-40 tractor was one of the models that this company produced. It was equipped with an 80-horsepower engine and weighed 2.5 tons with a length of 2.4 meters. According to various sources, the maximum speed of the tractor ranged from 12 to 50 km / h.
- The DeLorean company is known for its sports car DMC-12 - in fact, the only model of the brand. A car with an unusual appearance for its time became a cult after it played the role of a "time machine" in the film trilogy by Robert Zemeckis "Back to the Future." In January, ItalDesign, whose designer Giorgetto Giugiaro helped shape the coupe, hinted at the possibility of a revival of the model with a modern twist.
