Several special-edition DeLorean cars have been produced over the years, and the car is most notably featured as the time machine in the Back to the Future film trilogy.

Six DeLorean chassis were used during the production, along with one manufactured out of fiberglass for scenes where a full-size DeLorean was needed to “fly” on-screen only three of the cars still exist, with one that was destroyed at the end of Back to the Future Part III, two additional cars were abandoned, and the fiberglass replica was scrapped.
