DeLorean Time Machine (5-wide)
And now a 5-wide version of the DeLorean DMC-12 with the built-in time machine as seen in the "Back to the Future" movies with Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
About this creation
The design of this 5-wide model is basically the design of my 4-wide version. I mainly made some adjustments to match the odd width.

Let's start with some pictures:
I used another set of wheels for the 5-wide. I think, they look good, too.

The rear end has changed a little. I added some more greebles and a license plate. Take a closer look and you'll be able to read "OUTATIME" - No, I'm just kidding :-))

Yes, the doors open on this one, too.

A look inside: Drivers side: The white center console is for the "time line" switch.

Passenger's side, back: The Flux Capacitor is inside the trans-yellow plate.

And passengers side, front: The console for time travelling is in the center of the dashboard.

The rear view with the open gullwing doors. Credits for the sideview mirrors again to Pierre KissTheSky

Ooops, did you see that, too? ;-))

Do you remember Doc Brown's last words in Back to the Future I?
"Roads? Where we go, we don't need roads...!"

Tadaaa: Hover mode...

Yes, I lied: I made a bigger modification on the design :-))

Whoooosh!

This is how it works.

And the "money shot"

So this is my 5-wide LEGO version of the "Back to the Future" DeLorean time machine. I hope you like it :-))

Update August 29, 2012:
I've found a way to include the hover mode in my 4-wide model.

Very nice build, Nils. Great to see you build in 5-wide. I hope you will join the 5-wide studless cars' club and add this beauty to it as well as many more.

It's a killer set ;-)) I've spent 5 1/2 hours to build it, but it was worth every minute (and every €). It's so much fun :-))

Very good! With this width the car is more similar to the real one. And I like the functions very much!

Same effect with me ;-) The hover mode is a fantastic addition, again an awesome job. Very nice presentation, too. Maybe I like the overall design even better than the 4-wide. - Gruß an die Niedersachsen aus Ostwestfalen ;-)

Cool. Nächste Woche bestelle ich mir ein neues Auto der besagten Firma. Ich komme aus der schönen Universitätsstadt mit dem Gänseliesel^^ Danke für dein großes Lob für meinen Ecto 1. Ich bin mir sicher das du es auch schaffst einen zu bauen der dann richtig klasse wird. Deine Modelle sind echt spitze! Viele Grüße zurück, Sven Ps: Wenn du magst, können wir ja gern mal E-mail austauschen

Hi Nils, I was thinking the same as David. A very nice build and then the folding wheels took it to the next level. Very clever use of the technic Ts.
