You can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it. You can even make a good DeLorean better! Long live Back To The Future!
About this creation
You knew it was going to happen sooner or later. I finally got around to pulling the Delorean off the shelf and I noticed there were a lot a othings I could still do to make it better. A little work and thirty minutes later and my Delorean is finally perfect (well, maybe not perfect, but I still improved it alot).
As you can see, one of the most obvious changes is the swith from a very squarish Mr. Fusion to a new one-piece. Using the megaphone for this car was inspired by Stanley-Efu's minifig scale Delorean (he uses the same piece).
Ah, yes. The rear bumper. Don't know what kind of juma juice I was drinking when I made the previous version without a bumper, but now the Delorean's tush is protected. This design scheme is also another one I borrowed from Stanley-Efu.
The front bumper recieved some black accents and flux dispersal banding around the front (as opposed to the dark grey tiles I had before). Looks a lot more like the real deal in my opinion.
In this view, you can see the new rear flux dispersal bands. I used the same technique as the bumper because both parts are the same thing on the movie car. It adds a really nice touch and looks way better than those tubes I had before.
A little extra detail never hurt any one. Here you can see those red thiing that non one knows what they do (but they're there).
I added a ton of improvement to the rear of the Delorean. That liitle grey pneumatic tube is the exhaust pipe that leads from the new reactor to the vents. The binoculars worked good as that little dealie on the roof of the car (another one of those things that's never explained).
The new DeLorean can also be viewed on Brickshelf . Thanks for looking. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.

hello my name is Fabrizio I like the delorean back to the future you have built with the lego, I would like to reproduce it, would you be willing to sell me the instructions?
Fabrizio, if you send me your email address I can send you the instructions for free. They are slightly outdated instructions, but they are the only ones I have. The only thing they don't show is the new flat hood seen here but that part is easy to replicate.
Just awesome! Is there any chance to get the building instructions? So sorry that this epic design didn't made it back in 2006. Please think about a re-up on lego ideas :) I mean: pretty pleeeeeaaaaase ;)
geez, this is one of the most detailed builds I've seen for a pop cultural release.
Did you start this off the basic deLorean lego set you can buy?
In honour of the 30 year anniversary release this month.. i think I'm going to have a crack at this!
cheers for the inspiration man!

Ooh this is brilliant! I can see how this is your most popular build, you didn't leave out a single detail! You even built in the garbage recycling unit and the hover-mode wheels. Great work :-)
This is an absolutely stunning moc. i've been looking a long time for a DeLorean of this scale! I'd be delighted if you could send me the instructions. Thank you very much in advance!
Amazing, trying hard to duplicate this awesome lego set.
Just like everyone else anyway u could send instructions?
Or how would I go about getting them? Please email me at
My boys were a little disappointed in the CUUSOO version. If I got the instructions for this version, I would make Dad of the Year!!!
Share if you're willing. Thanks ahead of time!!!
The best one I've seen anywhere. I would love to have instructions if you want to e-mail them to me. I've wanted something like this since I was really little, thanks. :)
Hi! Your project is amazing and perfect. I like it very much! I know, a lot of people ask for the instructions, but can you send me the instructions or some help, how to build the Lego DeLorean? Thank you very much!
This is bloody brilliant!
I'm on a mission to try and make this (or at least source all the parts) before christmas, other constructions just don't look as good as this!! Could I please get a copy of your instructions? firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!
Great Scott!! This is an amazing build! I'm gonna have to jump on the bandwagon before i'm outtatime and ask if I could get a copy of the instructions too. Would be greatly appreciative! 5 star effort! email@example.com
This is the best lego version I have seen of the greatest car ever... Could you please send me the instructions on how to make it please, it would be a great project for my son and I to do together my email is Mredwar2000@yahoo.com
Marvellous !!!! Absolutely amazing ! My son had made his Santa Letter and he just want a DeLorean Lego. I told him that it was certainly impossible for Santa to do it and he told me that Santo is up to do everything for gentle childs !! How could I have the steps for doing the car in the Lego creator or other technique ? Don't let a father alone in this... Please ... I can make something for You in design or graphism perhaps, I'm graphist/Illustrator.
hey your creation is awsome if you could send me the instructions on how to build that car that would great i love back to the future especially the car please please please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Zachary my name is Maurice i recently came across your work three weeks ago you have inspired me and my daughter to build are own DeLorean. Ive seen a lot of DeLoreans since finding yours a lot of people with different takes on the classic DMC-12 but yours is very detailed and stands out from the rest, We would be very grateful if you could tell us how to make the base of the DeLorean and the hoover conversion wheels if that is not possible then maybe you could tell us the width and length of your DeLorean and how many pieces used,"The way i see it,
if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style".....
by any chance you have the ldd file for lego creator for this model??? i know you ve been asked a million times but i just joined...
i really hope you do,... you have an amazing gallery!
here's my email email@example.com
I'm a great fan of your work and I visit your websites every chance I get. When I saw your improved addition to the DeLorean you blew my mind. I know everyone has asked you but I just want to ask you if I could grab the instructios on how to make it. I've been looking on the Internet for ages and i have never been able to get it right. It would be a pleasure if I could make the Delorean myself. My email is 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Thank you for making the world a better place by bring back the Delorean.
I was wondering if any of you guys that requested to obtain/purchase the instructions for the BTTF Delorean from Zach received it. I never received a reply to my request and would be very interested still in getting a hold of it.
Zach is you are reading this, please give me a shout and let me know if getting the instructions could happen. I appreciate it.
Take care, guys!
My 9 year old son loves building Lego's and absolutely loves back to the future all 3 he collects anything delorian. Do you sell the instructions I don't expect it for free you put alot of work into designing your creations.

Hello from the other side of the Atlantic ocean.
You know what ? J'ADOOORE your version of the Delorean made of Lego.
It's incredible I have never seen such a perfect clone.
I do not know if you would agree, but please let me know if I can hope to receive an email from you with the instructions to make it myself.
there is a commercialised version of it, but so ugly...(the one with remote control)
Hope to hear from you soon
and again CONGRATULATIONS,
now I have to go and brush my arm's hair, because they are all standing up after seeing what you made.
I think maybe you should just post the Instructions! You have alot of Fans Out there! Can I have them too!? I have all the Cars, the movies, Everything! AND I love Building legos so I was hoping to get to build this now. Please? firstname.lastname@example.org
I saw this amazing Lego DeLorean, and it is unbelievable great!
I am curious if it would be possible for you to send me instructions for how to build it! Would be really amazing to have that care on a book shelve!
Thank you already, if not for the instructions, then at least for building this great car!!
my email is email@example.com
please send me a email with how to build i dont need to mutch detail on the engine because i cant afford mutch parts but i want to use this for my videos and i will give you complete credit and the url of the car in the credits firstname.lastname@example.org
On the off chance that you actually have instructions or a guideline for building this, then hereby imitating all the masses on here, would you be willing to send me the information?
wow, that is incredibly impressive. i remember making countless versions of the delorean when i was little, but never really had the right parts to make a good replica. this makes me want to buy a million legos just to try and make one again! i commend your great talents sir
I really like your model. It's awesome!!!
When I saw a picture of it I definitely knew that this would be the perfect present for my boyfriend.
He loves the movies and leogs. So would you please mail me the instructions of your New BTTF Delorean?
Very nice indeed, love how its compact yet so realistic, ive seen some other versions and this comes THE closest to looking like the real thin, i built one from a youtube video and its cool but way bulkier than yours. If possible you mind emailing me the instructions to yours? email@example.com, id really appreciate it. Lasty keep up the good work.
When I was younger, I watched the BTTF trilogy a million times, until my parents were sick of it. Now I've introduce my little sister to it, and she's been watching it a million times until I'm sick of it! I showed her your stuff, and (since she also likes Batman), she's probably one of your biggest fans now. And let me just say, this DeLorean is darn close enough to perfect for me!
Hey Zach, you did a great job at improving your original Delorean. Makes me wonder what your next project will be with this thing...working lights maybe? Anyway, I look forward to seeing more of your MOCs.
Also, thanks a bunch for the instructions you sent me. :)
