Imagination, Not Roads, Is What Hot Wheels' Hover Mode BTTF II DeLorean Needs to Fly

By Andrew Liszewski on at

October 21st, 2015, is finally upon us, and what futuristic wonders do we have to show for it? Awful 3D movies, hoverboards with wheels, and Pepsi still sold in cans. At least Hot Wheels has come through with a hover version of Doc Brown’s time-travelling DeLorean.

The basic Hot Wheels version, aka the 1:64-scale model, has plastic wheels and enough detailing to satisfy a toddler who will probably just send it crashing into anything and everything.

But more discerning collectors will want to opt for Hot Wheels’ $5.49/£3.56 premium version (in non-hover mode) that adds a more detailed paint job, some fancy packaging you’ll be less tempted to tear open, and real rubber tires. [Hot Wheels]
