“Back to the Future” Car Replica That Is Awesome (10 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Cars   10 Nov 2014   / 8905 views

This DeLorean car from the popular “Back to the Future” films is fully functional and will make you a little bit envious that you don’t own one too.

 

This is Ollie Wilkey from Keynsham, sitting in his car beside his girlfriend Anna.

His car, which looks like this.

And in which he keeps a hover board, Grays Sports Almanac, self-lacing shoes and a JVC GR-C1 camcorder as used by Doc Brown.

It also travels in time once it reaches 88mph.*

The car was apparently built in Florida by an ex-NASA engineer and Universal Studios constructor. Ollie’s friend later bought it and sold it to him for “a five figure sum” according to Barcroft Media.

And now he runs a business renting this incredible car out.

Ollie told the Daily Star: “I love the films to bits, it all stems from that. I was looking to buy a DeLorean when I was 16, before I could actually drive.”

He eventually joined an owners’ club, where he made a friend who sold him it.

He told the paper: “In one of my first drives in my first DeLorean, I got followed for quite a long time by police. There was two police officers, and one of them was taking pictures as I went past, they followed me into the car park, they got out and had a chat and took some photos.”
