The Delorean Time Machine
The DeLorean time machine is a fictional automobile-based time travel vehicle device featured in the Back to the Future franchise. In the feature film series, Dr. Emmett L. Brown builds a time machine from a retrofitted DMC DeLorean car, to gain insights into history and the future. Instead, he and Marty McFly end up using it to travel across 130 years of Hill Valley history to change the past for the better and to undo the negative effects of time travel. The car requires 1.21 gigawatts of power, and needs to travel 88 miles per hour so it can time travel. One of the cars used in filming is on display in a museum in Paarl, South Africa. The official Back to the Future DeLorean can be viewed at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
