    New pics of VIN 20105, the 24k gold Delorean

    These were provided to me by my FB friend Micke (Swedish for Mike) the filmmaker of the upcoming documentary The Golden Wings.

    He filmed 3 gold plated Deloreans and interviewed the owners. Should be a good film!!

    Torsion bar

    Is that a gold plated torsion bar in picture 4? I think normal torsion bars are expensive, wonder how much this one would set you back!

    I noticed that as well! Surprising how the gold plating hasn't cracked & flaked from the bars being twisted through use.

    Those carpets are interesting as well. They appear to be a dark charcoal grey- the other saddle interior gold DeLorean had matching tan carpet. The carpet section covering the vertical part of the bulkhead behind the seats looks like a sloppy last minute solution- it isn't simply an original carpet section dyed a darker shade. I do love how vinyl edging of the carpet sections along the door sills is saddle colored, though. Little details like that make me so happy.

    It's great to see an update on this car. I've been wondering about it since the recent article on the gold cars! http://www.classicandperformancecar....rean-gold-rush

    Great to see some high-quality photos of the gold car. I've never seen it look so good.
