The DeLorean DMC-12 was destined to become an obscure relic of the past when the DeLorean Motor Company closed its doors. Its fate changed when it was modified with a flux compositor and could travel through time in the Back to the Future trilogy. Only three cars remain from the movie, and one was just sold.

One of cars was sold in Beverly Hills last week for the small price of $541,200. Of the three cars left, the one auctioned off was the only one owned by a private party. The other two belong to Universal Studios and are occasionally displayed in theme parks.

The car auctioned off sat in a parking lot at Universal Studios for about 14 years after being used in the film, and was briefly displayed in the Petersen Auto Museum in Los Angeles. The previous owner had it fully restored before it went on the auction block. Part of the profits from the sale will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

All I know is once this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious *stuff.
