Great Scott! Back To The Future Toyota Tacoma Concept is Awesome
23 Octobre 2015 - Autoblog
October 21, 2015, was the day movie geeks have been waiting for. Some might call it "heavy." It's when Dr. Emmett Brown, Marty McFly, and Jennifer Parker will arrive from the year 1985, as told by the events of Back To The Future Part II.
It's more than just film buffs that have been waiting for this date, though.
Toyota, which provided the customized pickup that McFly's character lusted over in the beginning of the first film, got in on the action with an updated version based on the new Tacoma. Like the original, which was also driven by Michael J. Fox's character at the end of the first film, this Taco gets a black paint job and a healthy dose of KC HiLite driving lamps, although they're of the modern LED variety. There are also TRD wheels shod in BFGoodrich tires, although it should be noted the original film truck rode on Goodyears. That said, there are plenty of specific nods to the original car.
Beyond the black paint and extra lamps, Toyota has added its eponymous badging to the truck's tailgate, as well as the same D-4S fuel injection badging as McFly's original pickup truck (remember when cars used to brag about having injection?), and even tweaked the standard Tacoma's headlights and taillights to more closely resemble the film pickup. The front and rear bumpers are tubular, and the license plate is in the same style as those featured on the 2015 cars from BTTF Part II. Also, those vintage 1985 mud flaps are awesome.
