Ever wonder how Marty McFly and his time-traveling DeLorean would fare on the rough-and-tumble streets of Grand Theft Auto's Liberty City? Wonder no more, fellow nerd! An enterprising modder, seedyrom34, has created a "Back to the Future" skin for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. And -- great Scott! -- it's every bit as awesome as we hoped.
First off, the main character wears Marty's iconic purple vest and jeans. OK, so big whoop, right? It gets better. The DeLorean is incredibly detailed, both inside and out. The Flux Capacitor fluxes, the time circuits light up, and, best of all, if you have plutonium in the tank and hit 88 miles per hour, you'll see some serious s*** in the form of actual time travel.
That's right, kids -- reach 88, and your car rockets into the future. It's an incredibly useful feature when the fuzz is chasing you down. Plus, you'll travel in style: Just like in the movie, time traveling leaves behind a tire trail of fire.
This is hardly the first time a modder has added their own personal touch to Grand Theft Auto IV. Earlier this year, a mod came out that allowed the main character to look like a horse. A clip of the horse driving a convertible with little regard for traffic safety is a must-see.
Check out a clip of the "Back to the Future" action below. It is your density, um, we mean, your destiny. Please note that the video features adult language.
