Hi,

I think you'll find the Delorean is a Renault V6 engine, unsure about gearbox, but perhaps Renault as well. It's the same engine they used to fit in the old Renault 25's, don't know if they still make the engine, if it is it's perhaps totally different now.

The Engine used in the DeLorean was a 2.85 PRV V6 as per the Renault Alpine and Volvo 262 coupe. The gearbox is basically a Renault UN1 as per the boxed used in the Steven's Esprit
