Building a Tiny PVC DeLorean

Thanks in large part to Back to the Future, the DeLorean DMC-12 is one of the most iconic cars of all time. While we probably will never drive one, it’s good to know that it’s possible to build a tiny version with enough skill and time. Ank Creative shows off the modelmaking process for one incredibly detailed mini 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.

Doc and Marty would have never let their ride fall into the kind of disrepair that this DeLorean DMC-12 model was in at the start of this video. Honestly, it looks like somebody dropped it into a pond and left it there to rot. Can the folks at Good Restore make this toy look as good as new? The answer is a resounding “yes.”

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.

The DeLorean Paradox

The DeLorean Paradox

Introduced in 1981, the DeLorean DMC-12 was supposed to be the “car of the future,” yet despite its striking looks, it wasn’t that groundbreaking. The company that built it quickly crashed, but Back to the Future made it an icon and dream car for decades to come.

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.
