Insight Editions presents a workshop manual for Doc and Marty’s stainless steel ride. Due out 3.30.2021, the book features detailed drawings you could use to maintain your own time-traveling DMC-12. It also includes journal entries from Doc Brown and details on the Time Train, Hoverboards, and other goodies.
THE BEST Delorean
The DeLorean DMC-12 is best known as the time-traveling car in the Back to the Future movies. While the real DeLorean could eventually hit 88mph, it didn’t exactly do it quickly with its 130 hp V6. Electric Future checks out a modded DMC-12 that can zoom from 0-to-60 in about 5 seconds thanks to parts from a Nissan Leaf.
To celebrate 35 years of Back to the Future, Hasbro has made a new Transformer known as “Gigawatt.” In vehicle form, it looks like Doc and Marty’s DeLorean DMC-12 time machine, but can turn into a mech with a flux capacitor in his chest. The car’s wheels also flip into horizontal mode like the flying version in the movies.
Thanks in large part to Back to the Future, the DeLorean DMC-12 is one of the most iconic cars of all time. Now, the gull-winged cars are going back into production – this time with a 300 to 400hp engine, and uprated tires. Otherwise, the replicas are dead ringers for the original.
A group of Stanford mechanical engineers modded a 1981 DMC-12 to study autonomous driving systems that can adjust to extreme situations, particularly ones that require counter intuitive driving. So far they’ve taught their electric DeLorean to drift donuts on its own.
