Sci-Fi’s Greatest Flying Cars
From The SFX Archives: Some of the best flying cars (and buses) – that actually LOOK like cars (or buses) – from science fiction and fantasy (with one exception, for product placement reasons).

Back To The Future 1, 2 & 3 (1985, 1989, 1990)
“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” And to prove his point, Doc Brown reveals that his time traveling car has more than one trick up its exhaust: it can fly. One of the best final scenes in a movie ever, surely? The DeLorean used in the trilogy was a 1981 DMC-12, with a 6-cylinder PRV (Peugeot/Renault/Volvo) engine. And it’s amazing to think that with three blockbusters’ worth of publicity, the car company still went bust.
