Toyota Goes Back To The Future With SEMA Tacoma And Mirai

Posted on Nov 4 2015 - 5:11am by Lisa Chan

This being the year that Doc and Marty travel through time to a fictitious future past, the airwaves have been flooded with stuff related to the Back to the Future film trilogy. And since the DeLorean Motor Company has long since gone belly up, Toyota is laying claim to the automotive side of things at the SEMA this year.


Most outrageous is the concept based on the Mirai. The already futuristic fuel cell vehicle has been decked out in collaboration with MV Designz to look like Doc Brown’s time machine. It comes complete with two gullwing doors, an air suspension, 19-inch wheels, blue LED lighting, brushed aluminum paint, head-up display… the works. It even has a faux Flux capacitor in the back, a Mr Trash machine that pops out the trunk, and “OUTATIME” California plates.

The Japanese automaker also recently released a 2016 Tacoma truck tricked out to look like the one Marty McFly lusted after in the films. That means a black paintjob, loads of KC auxiliary lighting, knobby off-road tires, tubular bumpers, mud flaps, and special badging. Between the Tacoma and the Mirai time machine concept, there’ll be plenty for nostalgic fans to check out at the tuner expo in Las Vegas this week.
