Great Scott! Amid all the new cars being unveiled at the LA Auto Show, here’s another true classic from across the pond: the actual DeLorean DMC-12 used in Back to the Future III. And it’s for sale.

According to its concessionaires, American auctionists Profiles in History, this one was used in the 1955 drive-in movie scene and is one of just three privately-owned genuine movie cars.

After filming, it sat in a car park at Universal Studios for 14-odd years, with a short time on display at the Peterson Automotive Museum in LA. It comes with a Universal Studios certificate of authenticity and an original signed Bill of Sale with the Vehicle Identification Number.

And the reckoning? Profiles in History reckon it’ll fetch between $400,000 (Rs 2.03 crore) and $600,000 (Rs 3.05 crore).
