How to make a Back To The Future DeLorean from a Pepsi can


Back to the Future celebrated its 30th birthday last week and it remains just as well-loved as ever.

And as well as the unforgettable characters, there's a place in everyone's hearts for a certain slab of metal in the shape of the iconic DeLorean, which had a unique ability to travel through time.

Now, using just four cans of Pepsi (which is perfectly in keeping, as Pepsi was Marty's favourite drink in the film - crystal specifically) and a few implements, you can create your very own miniature motor, thanks to this superb video from Dave Hax. You can create just the frame of the car, or - with a few extra little pieces - pimp your ride nicely to look just like the original.

There are templates in the video and simple instructions throughout, so get creating. If anyone knows how to make a flux capacitor out of a Coke can then please let us know.
