Ever wish you could drive the same car as Marty McFly and Doc Brown in Back to the Future? Omaze wants to help make that fantasy a reality right now. It's offering a new sweepstakes with the chance to win a fully restored DeLorean in honor of the car’s 40th anniversary.
The car up for grabs was recently revamped by the DeLorean Motor Company and includes the model's famous black interior, gull-wing doors, and brushed stainless-steel exterior. (There are also a few modern features like a Bluetooth stereo.) Under the hood, you'll find a five-speed manual transmission and a 2.85-liter V6 engine that can push a top speed of 130 mph. This is a bit more punch than the original DeLoreans, which were notoriously underpowered compared to other sports cars of the day. Though the company is looking to produce new DeLoreans in the future, it's also sprucing up and reselling original models from the '80s.
You can enter the sweepstakes for free, or you can make a charitable donation to earn more entries and increase your chances of winning the grand prize. Donating $10 gives you 20 entries, $25 for 125, $50 for 500, $100 for 1200, and $150 for 2000. Proceeds will go towards the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, which helps preserve the cultural impact of cars through the decades. These funds will help the organization’s YouTube series educate young students about the history and future of automobiles.
The sweepstakes will close on January 7, 2022, and the winner will be announced around January 26. Find all the details about this experience here.
