  • Do the electronics in your TV and Movie cars do anything special or are they just static display lighting?

    The Electronics in the DeLorean Time Machine function exactly like they do in the movie including the sounds. Well except the actual time travel part! You can type in any date and set it into the time display then with the press of a special button you can trigger a mock time travel and watch the speedo ramp up to 88MPH which sets everything off inside the car including the Flux Capacitor, changes the dates, empties the plutonium chamber and ramps the speedo back down to zero.

    The K.I.T.T Trans Am has fully functioning dash, which displays the speed, revs, fuel level, oil temp and water temp etc. The remainder of the lights run in a demo style mode where everything is animated to simulate a computerized car. When Audio is played through the car stereo the K.I.T.T voice box flashes just like in the TV show. The GPS can be programmed with 150 name options and will speak your name (if it is in the list) followed by four welcome style intros. Watch the Video for more details.
