    The make something like a veyron look common

    There's a guy the next town over from me owns one but very rarely takes it out.

    Apparently a company in Texas is trying to remanufacture the run down ones so they are like new and seek them for $55,000.

    The geezer was abit of a legend to be honest, utterly terrible businessman and pretty mental but he had a passion for cars.
    Trying to rescue the company with a massive cocaine deal was top work!

    The movie was called "Driven" or something like that.

    There was a documentary called "The Delorean Story" too, I think.

    If you can get past the irritating accent, this RCR vid is quite informative.
