If you grew up in the 80’s then you would agree with me that one of the best films made in that decade was “Back to the Future”. Come on, who would forget the characters of Marty MacFly ( Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Loyd). Add to that was Doc’s pimped out car, the Time Machine, one of the most famous Hollywood cars ever.
I remember dreaming of having a time machine like that so that I can go to the future and get one of those flying skateboards. And having a time machine can also come very handy especially if you’re a fan of history or a gadget freak.
Hot Wheels Back to the Future Car
The Time Machine is actually a DeLorean MC 12 which was then added with some props to look like a futuristic car. This model was popular in the early 1980’s. The De Lorean MC 12 is the only model ever made by the DeLorean Motor Company.
In the movie, the Time Machine was fueled by plutonium in order to travel trough time. However, in some parts of the film, where they can’t find nuclear fuel, Doc and Marty managed to harness the power of lightning in order to go back to their original time period.
The back part of the DeLorean is the part where you can see the power source for time travel. It was called the Mr. Fusion Home Reactor.
The Delorean Time Machine from Back to the Future Trilogy
Over all, there were 5 DeLorean cars used in the making the of the Back to the Future trilogy. Two of these cars are still in good condition today and one can be seen in outside the Back to the Future ride in Universal Studios while the other one is used for promotional purposes and tours.
For guys and fans like me who can’t have real time machines, or visit Universal Studios, it is best to go to your nearest toy store and look for the Hot Wheels die cast version of the Back to the Future Time Machine.
