Most realistic DeLorean is up for grabs on eBay

I’m sure you are all familiar with the DeLorean of Back to the Future fame.  BTTF enthusiast Gary Weaver has built the most realistic recreation of the time-machine car with a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12.  Six years of research results in what you see in the gallery below.  (Fun fact: The location where this photo shoot was taken place is at the Gamble House in Pasadena, the very house that served as Doc Brown’s residence.)

  • Built on a beautiful, super-clean, stock 1981 5-speed DMC-12 with over $16,000 of mechanical work and upgrades performed at DMC California in September of 2008. Approx. 78K miles on vehicle.
  • Programmable time circuits which function just like those in the film.
  • Functioning digital speedometer on the dashboard (reads actual vehicle speed).
  • Main Time Circuit switch functions just like in the film, with all sound effects.
  • All interior indicators and switches light up, just like in the film.
  • Sound effects upon door opening.
  • Screen-accurate “OUTATIME” metal-stamped license plate with 1986 registration tag.
  • Eagle Goodyear GT tires, as seen in the film (not pictured).

It’s up for grabs on eBay right now.  You can “buy it now” for 90K; or the current bid stands at $60, 301.03 (there’s been ten bids placed on it).  The auction ends in about two hours!
