Replica Delorean hard drive goes back to the future

It’s that time of year again. The holiday shopping season is upon us and I think I might have found the perfect gift for the 80s movie buff on your list. It’s cool enough that this is a pretty good replica of the Delorean from Back to the Future. It’s even better than it’s actually functional too.

That’s because the scale model actually hads a fully-functional 500GB portable hard drive inside. In addition to geeking out on your memories of Doc Brown and Marty McFly (when are we finally going to get those awesome hoverboards?), you can store your favorite movies, music, and documents on there too.

The Delorean replica is built on a 1:18 scale and it has moving parts too, including both gull-wing doors and the hood. The USB connector is in the back. Expect to pay a hefty $250 for this piece of geekdom.

Another down side? It doesn’t come with a flux capacitor and seeing how it only has a USB 2.0 connection, you might have a hard time reaching the required 88mph to hit the jump. [UberGizmo, FlashRods]

  1. I have owned a Delorean for 29 years – drive it every day. Love the product excpet for the wheels – they look like they are from a ’57 Chevy – not a Delorean – how could you blow this!
