1981 DeLorean Time Machine - Click above for high-res image gallery

The way we see it, if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style? Thankfully, Hollywood's Doc Brown agreed with us. In this case, style equals a 1981 DeLorean with 31,854 original miles and tons of Back to the Future props built in. We're not exactly experts on the subject or anything, but this particular DeLorean time machine replica looks pretty darn accurate to us.

The actual car bits are as you'd expect. Like the DeLorean used in the classic movie from 1985, this car is powered by a 2.8-liter V6 engine driving the rear wheels, albeit the power in this one flow through a three-speed automatic transmission. No surprises there. Of course, the car's coup de grâce is the "fully functional" flux capacitor and matching set of time circuits. You can even check out the car in action in a priceless Back to the Future video sendup after the jump, or check out the gallery below that's studded with b-list celebrity cameos.

Want to take the nearly complete Back to the Future Time Machine home with you? Now's your chance. Buy it Now price: $60,000. You've got just a few more hours before – ahem – time runs out.

      I would like a quick trip back to 1985. There are a few stocks I would pick up.....

        No kidding. Microsoft, Apple, Toyota, Honda, etc.

      I have seen both the original car and several replicas and I must say that some of the replicas were more impressive in their quality and attention to detail than the movie car. And I must admit I love DeLoreans.

        Lucas thinks you're a dweeb.

        I noticed, but I am just too cool to care what Lucas thinks. Besides I bet secretly he has a poster of a DeLorean on his wall above his race car bed!

      Missing a lot of the external body stuff as well - all the wiring and cabling that was attached around the body of the car.

      Not worth $60K, as I've seen better replicas go for less.

      I'd take it back and steal it.

      DeLorean people are dweebs.

      Can I use it to go back in time to "un-bought" the car once I realised how big of a mistake I've done buying an automotive piece of crap?

      There was one of these in BC a while back, sold for $5,500. I honestly think there are more DMC-12s with the B2tF kit than stock ones.

      Lottery car #253:

      DeLorean with bare carbon fiber body panels, and a crazy engine swap to match.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I was thinking that the VQ37 would be a great engine. 200hp more than stock, still a V6, and a unique exhaust note to match the unique car.

      It does not appear to have the modified speedometer (95mph) that the movie car had either. The speedo used in the movie car was the normal 85mph unit, with the numbers modified to make it look like a 95mph unit (starts off at 15mph instead of 5mph) - it wasn't recalibrated for the new face IIRC.

      How is it that the movie car had an automatic, when there were plenty of clear shots of the pedals and the shifter in the movie?

      LOL! I went to an outdoor party a few months back and for some reason, this car was all roped off up in the middle of it.

      I wonder what the doner cars were for the replicas??
