An iconic car from an iconic movie just sold for a pretty hefty price. The Delorean that was featured in the movie Back to the Future III (that’s the one where they travelled back to the Wild West) was auctioned off for $541,200.
The sale, which took place last weekend at the Icons of Hollywood auction in Beverly Hills, is only one of three Deloreans from the series remaining and the only one of those three held privately. The estimate on this car was $400,000 to $600,000, so its going price was no surprise to bidders. In actuality, if this car wasn’t a star, it would have only been worth about $30,000.
There’s no word if this Delorean is in working order, but we’re pretty sure that if it does run, the fabled flux capacitor won’t help you avoid present day traffic jams; Even if you do hit 88 miles per hour.
