Luckiest if you’re a Back to the Future fan, but who isn’t???
Ollie Wilkey from Keynsham, Somerset in the UK bought the screen accurate DeLorean for a five-figure sum, which he wouldn’t disclose. But you can just imagine…
So what does screen accurate mean?
Basically, this DeLorean is just like the one used in the movies – flashing lights, flux capacitor, Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor, and all.
The DeLorean was recreated by an ex-NASA engineer and Universal Studios contractor based in Florida.
Not only does this DeLorean look like Back to the Future’s DeLorean, but it is actually street legal; so Ollie Wilkey does take his unique car out for a spin now and then. He doesn’t do it often, though, as he says it slows him down a lot because people want to take a look at it and take pictures. Who wouldn’t? I’d even have the audacity to ask to ride in it.
As pricey as the screen accurate DeLorean is, its owner does make some money out of it by renting the car on special occasions. Any takers?
