Where we're going, we don't need orange track.
DeLorean in 2009 as part of their 2010 line-up, and later announced the most famous DeLorean of all (space) time (continuum) was to be released as a 2011 New Model!
Jump ahead (to the future!) and apparently it is currently on shelves, because I have it!
Johnny Lightning release of a few years back.
This Hotwheels release is car #18/50 of the 2011 New Models. It's official designation is "Back to the Future Time Machine" (how cool is that?!?!)
On the card back are the car's stats:
Birthplace: Hill Valley, USA
Designer: Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown
Specialty: Powered by plutonium or a bolt of lightning and crafted from the DeLorean DMC-12, the stainless steel body helps allow the flux capacitor to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity required for smooth passage through the space-time continuum.
I took all these pics the second I got home this evening, I'm so excited to finally have this vehicle! I want to customize one with HO scale train wheels so it can be pushed around an electric train track. And it would be easy to glue some wheels in sideways for a flight mode. I also want to figure out a way to make it lay flaming tire tracks. I can probably only do that trick once, though, so I'll hold out on trying it any time soon. But the possibilities are endless!
Other custom ideas:
Get it wet, stick it in the freezer for a few hours, take it out on a warm day and watch the frost evaporate off of it ala post time travel.
Connect a wire/hook to the back.
Attach a team of plastic horses to the front.
And of course, whitewalls.
