Automotive designer Brad Builds unveils one of his latest projects, an off-road version of the DeLorean DMC-12 seen in Back to the Future. Upgrades include a lifted, long-travel suspension, reinforced undercarriage, and larger wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires. This wouldn’t be a time machine without Doc Brown’s reactor and rear cooling fins, complete with external wiring as well as random hoses. Ever since the deepfake of Tom Holland playing Marty Mcfly came about, there have been rumors of a reboot. Read more for additional pictures and a bonus video.
A total of six DeLorean chassis were used during the production of Back to the Future, along with a fiberglass shell for scenes where a full-sized vehicle was needed to “fly” on-screen. Unfortunately, only three of those cars still exist today, as one was destroyed at the end of Back to the Future Part III. Universal Studios does own two of the remaining cars, and you can find them on display occasionally at one of their theme parks or on other productions. There is however, a fully restored Back to the Future DeLorean at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
