Behold The DeLorean Time Machine Done-Up As A Safari Off-Road Rally Car

Despite more than three-and-a-half decades having passed since its short three-year production run ended in the mid-1980s, the DeLorean DMC-12 remains a bonafide automotive icon, and while its striking angular design and gull-wing doors undeniably played a major role in the cult car’s appeal, the DeLorean is undoubtedly best-known for its appearance in the Back to the Future trilogy. And with 2021 marking the 40th anniversary since the American sports car’s release, Los Angeles-based automotive concept artist and Youtuber, BradBuilds, has opted to treat Doc Brown’s DeLorean to a ruggedized off-road conversion.

This off-road interpretation of the iconic movie car rides on a lifted, long-travel suspension setup supplemented via trimmed wheel arches, undercarriage crash protection, and a beefy over-sized set of wheels shod in all-terrain tires. In addition to retaining Doc Brown’s reactor and rear cooling fins, BradBuild’s concept also maintains the external wiring and hoses configuration seen in the film trilogy. A few other off-grid oriented odds and ends round out the build, but it also still has all its time-traveling bits and pieces — including the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor and the lauded flux capacitor. To check out more of this project or any other of BradBuilds’ work you can visit the creator’s website linked below.
