How to Rent Your Own 'Back to the Future' DeLorean Time Machine

May 03, 2013

When it comes to iconic automobiles related to some of our favorite movies of all time, there really aren't many left that you can still see on display or actually drive yourself. This is especially the case for all the cool, futuristic cars from your favorite sci-fi movies since most of them were delicate props that have long since been disassembled. That is except for the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, which, thanks to the fact that many DeLoreans still exist, is still being retrofitted to look exactly like the different versions of the car used in all three movies. And in some cases, you can even rent one for something as cool as your wedding or as simple as impressing your friends by rolling up to Friday-night bowling in style.

Recently the Time Machine Restoration team helped restore a DeLorean used in all three Back to the Future movies so that it once again looked just like it did when Emmett "Doc" Brown and Marty McFly used it to travel through time. That version is now on display at Universal Studios. But for those looking to ride around in their own DeLorean time machine, there's a company based in Minneapolis, Minnesota that's now renting one for parties, events or just plain making your friends jealous.

The company, located at, is based in Minneapolis during the warm months and Las Vegas during the colder months, and its rental fee is $1,500 per day with transportation costs at $1 per mile from the DeLorean's starting location, though keep in mind this car wasn't used in any of the movies. According to the site, other props available include: "Remote control (for driving the DeLorean at the mall with a dog inside), hoverboard, future glasses, protective radiation gear, aviators, 1985 JVC video camera and more…"

That sounds like an amazing weekend of Back to the Future cosplay if you ask us. What would you use the DeLorean for? [via Design Taxi]
