Marty McFly and Doc Brown’s ride is going to auction next month, complete with white-walls and prop-improvised circuit board on the hood.
Profiles in History, the company that will be auctioning the iconic 80s time machine, says this DeLorean is one of seven used as movie cars in the trilogy, one of three currently still in existence, and the only one privately owned. This particular example was built for off-road use – Marty did take it back to 1885, after all, before paved roads in the American West.
The car sat in Universal Studios’ back lot for some 14 years, enjoying a brief stint on display at the Peterson Automotive Museum in L.A., according to Profiles in History. The remaining cars are usually on display at Universal’s various theme parks.
The car comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Universal Studios, original Bill of Sale, and VIN. Even though the Mr. Fusion is still broken and the Flux Capacitor may not be fluxing as much as it once did, the DeLorean is expected to fetch between $400,000 and $600,000.
