2015 is the year made infamous by the Back to the Future trilogy, so it’s not surprising that the craze for all things Doc and Marty has been at an all-time high. From real-life production hoverboards to Nike’s re-release of the MAG self-lacing sneaker, it’s also clear that companies have been doing their best to satiate the public’s interest in the film and its products. Case in point is Toyota’s recent unveiling of its MV Designz-modified Mirai and a tricked-out 2016 Tacoma truck, both of which take inspiration from Marty McFly’s version of the future.
Showcased at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Toyota’s exclusive, Back to the Future-inspired Mirai re-imagines Doc Brown’s time machine with the help of MV Designz. The futuristic design comes complete with gullwing doors and a heads-up display of the “time-traveling destination,” while a faux Flux capacitor in the back, Mr Trash machine in the trunk and “OUTATIME” California plates are all authentic details that the film franchise’s fans should salivate over. The Tacoma truck, meanwhile, is a modern-day recreation of the famous 4X4 that McFly obsessed over in the trilogy, with modifications that include a custom black paint job, KC auxiliary lighting, off-road tires, tubular bumpers, mud flaps and special badging.
