Back To The Future

Universal Studios Florida Promotional Full-Size Practical Replica Time-Travelling DeLorean Car

Stock #101232

”Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me that you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?”

Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is a high school student who is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in an time-travelling DeLorean, invented by Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd), an eccentric scientist.

A full-size, practical replica time-travelling DeLorean car, as seen in the Back to the Future trilogy. Doc Brown’s remarkable time machine was used by Marty McFly at numerous points during the three Back to the Future films, as our heroes travelled as far back as 1885 and as far forward as 2015, constantly trying to unravel the various problems they themselves caused.

This incredibly detailed replica has been painstakingly assembled, with every care and effort taken to accurately represent the vehicle featured throughout the Back to the Future trilogy. Starting life as a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, the car was meticulously converted by ex-NASA engineer Bruce Coloumbe to the highest possible standards. Every added component functions as it does in the movies (apart from enabling actual time travel, of course). Dates can be inputted into the time circuits while producing the correct sound effects. Should one be driving and hit 88mph, time-travel mode will activate, causing the Flux Capacitor to illuminate and sound effects to play (legal disclaimer: driving at 88 mph is illegal in most countries and is generally frowned upon). The time-travel mode feature is also accessible via the remote control while the car is stationary. The Flux Capacitor, fluxes, doors and Mr. Fusion make the correct noises when opened.

The car includes a fog machine hooked up to the rear vents, and numerous sound clips can be played via internal and external speakers, all activated via remote control. A set of hover wheels are included which, when clipped over the standard wheels, give the illusion of flying. The final addition is a replica Mattel Hoverboard which stands to the side of the car for the complete time-travel experience. The car’s heat sink has been autographed by Christopher Lloyd and franchise co-creator Bob Gale. A spare heat sink is also provided.

This car was extensively used for promotional purposes at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida in 2011 and 2012. Photographs of it on display and at other events — including use in the UK for Microsoft, Pepsi/Uber, Secret Cinema, Giff Gaff and many more — are included in a reference folder. The album also includes an operator’s manual, wiring diagrams, legal documents, purchase receipts and importation paperwork.

The DeLorean is functioning and running. It is a UK road-legal vehicle and is currently registered to the owner in England. Its MOT (Ministry of Transport) certificate expired in May and it is currently SORN and declared as off the road. Legal transfer of title will need to take place before delivery can be arranged. Transportation and shipping quotes should be acquired prior to bidding.
