The DMC DeLorean is famous for its iconic role as the time machine in the three Back to the Future movies, but now its stretching its acting wings a little further with a new gig as a yellow taxicab in New York City!

Unfortunately, that “acting” analogy is a little too accurate, since this DeLorean will only be acting as a taxi, and not actually working as one. It’s all part of an elaborate ad campaign for New York fashion brand Nooka. The campaign’s logline is “Experience the Future,” and this is one example of that idea.

So don’t expect any DeLorean taxis to be picking you up off a New York street anytime soon.  But who knows?  Maybe that will change in the future.
