Whatever Happened to the Back to the Future DeLorean?

Back to the Future, released in 1985 mixed up science fiction, adventure and comedy to become a movie which drew millions to the cinema and is still has a special place in the hearts of many to this day. Perhaps the most iconographic of the movie’s props, the actual time machine was a DeLorean DMC-12. It whisked Marty McFly back to 1955 yet what has happened to the car used in the movie? Where did that go after the movies were complete?

To be honest there were seven used all told, but it is thought that only three of these survive. Spanish website Sigue Al Conejo Blanco has tracked down one of the cars featured in the movie to a Madrid workshop. The site has a whole gallery of the car, which appears in tip top condition.  You can see the rest of the gallery by clicking on any of the pictures above or by clicking here.
