DeLorean Sells For $541K: 'Back To The Future' Car Auctioned

If only Doc Brown knew how much he could get for that thing...

One of the original DeLorean DMC-12 cars used as time machines in the "Back To The Future" movie trilogy was put on auction and sold for a high bid of $541,000, Hemmings.com reports. Part of the proceeds for the car, one of seven built for the film series and allegedly one of only three remaining, went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Had the car not been one of the DeLoreans used for the Robert Zemeckis-directed film, it'd be worth around $30,000.

The DeLorean has been experiencing a pop culture revival of late. In October, it was announced that the DeLorean Motor Company of Texas, a new company formed in 1995 dedicated to buying up old parts from original model DeLoreans, would produce an electric version of the car made partially from those old parts.
