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.
