Watch the Original DeLorean From 'Back to the Future' Restored to Its Former Glory

A film icon finally gets the treatment it deserves.

By //Automotive

Despite being a pop culture icon in its own right and inspiring no shortage of knockoffs and a subsequent craze for DeLoreans, it turns out that the original Time Machine from Back to the Future was left to succumb to the elements for decades, with many components being pilfered by those who wanted a piece of movie history. Fortunately, in the lead-up to the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future film, a team of automotive restoration experts led by the film’s producer, Bob Gale, embarked on an extensive, museum-grade restoration of what remained of the car. The restoration process has been recorded in the documentary Outatime, of which a 20-minute featurette will come with the Back to the Future 30th anniversary trilogy pack, due to be released on October 21. Enjoy the trailer above, and look out for the full-length Outatime documentary to be released later this year.
