Great Scott! That's one expensive Delorean.
A car used in the 1990 sequel "Back to the Future Part III" has sold at an auction for $541,200, Hemmings.com reported. Although there are many replica Deloreans out there, this is the genuine article, according to movie and TV memorabilia auctioneers Profiles in History.
Viewers of Syfy's reality show "Hollywood Treasure" first got a glimpse of the Delorean sitting in collector Desi Dos Santos' garage.
At the time, Dos Santos couldn't bear to part with the Delorean, but it would seem that his feelings have since changed.
The Delorean was also displayed at the Profiles in History booth at this year's San Diego Comic-Con (click here to see an image of it, there).
Now that this piece of movie history has a new home, viewers of the Syfy series might be able to watch in 2012 to see how the auction went down.
Would you pay over a half million dollars to have Marty McFly's ride in your garage? Let us know in the comments.
