Tyler DeLorean from Cornwall, UK, claims to be the son of Jon DeLorean, the man who created the iconic DMC-12. To pay tribute, he decided to build a Reliant Robin-based three wheel replica that has got him in some hot water with the DeLorean Motor Company.

Manufactured by John DeLorean’s DeLorean Motor Company from 1981 through 1983, the DMC-12, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, is best known for its gull-wing doors, brushed stainless-steel outer body panels, and fiberglass body structure with a steel backbone chassis. However, many auto enthusiasts were disappointed with its lack of power and performance, that is until…after 1985 when it became immortalized as a time machine in the Back to the Future movies.
