DeLorean DMC-12 From Back To The Future 3, Set To Go On Auction –

DeLorean DMC-12

Those of you who are fans of the Back to the Future movies and have deep pockets will have the chance to grab a piece of movie history when the car from the third part of the series will go on auction. The car we’re talking about is one of the seven original DeLorean DMC-12 cars that were driven by Michael J. Fox during the film. Today, only three of these cars exist so you can imagine how precious it is.

The car which will go on the auction organized by Profiles in History has been in private hands for 8 years and features a full roll cage, new suspension and a V6 engine borrowed from VW. The organizers say that this DeLorean DMC-12 will fetch anywhere from at least $400,000 to $600,000. The car was used for the 1955 drive-in movie scene where Marty McFly raced back to 1985 in order to find Dr. Emmet “Doc” Brown, a character played by Christopher Lloyd.

At this auction, aside from the car there will be other artifacts that will be auctioned, including Doc’s burned toy Caddy, the Tales From Space comic, costumes, Clock Tower cables as well as a full set of five types of hoverboards. Some of the money obtained from this auction will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Disease. This auction will be organized on December 15-17.
