You don’t need to be a mad scientist, a leading paleontologist or even David Hasselhoff to drive some of the most iconic movie cars from the ‘80s and ‘90s–virtually, of course.

Forza Horizon 5 players now have the opportunity to drive K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, a ’92 Jeep Wrangler from Jurassic Park and all three versions of the DeLorean time machine from the Back to Future trilogy.


All five cars, as part of the “Universal Icons Car Pack,” are available for purchase and download starting today, June 18.

So which version of the DeLorean time machine is your favorite?

I'm having a hard time choosing myself.

it'd be funny if the Part II time machine was in hover mode and the driving physics was changed to that of an air hockey puck.

Hmm ... I've been looking at old Firebirds late last night. This might scratch that itch.

How about BJ and the Bear's semi?  Bonus points for Audrey and Judy Landers sitting in the cab.

Warner bros, not universal- sadly. 

 

That being said, I am one of the dummies that bought this pack. It was $9 for 5 cars, 3 of which are skin swapped deloreans that already exist in game. HOWEVER when you get to 88 mph, you see some serious E36 M3. 

 

KITT has a battle mode bodykit that has active DRS, too. No missiles though. The big option for the JP jeep was top, or no top. 

 

As for best bttf delorean? My favorite movie is the second one, because I loved the future. 2015 was wild. The best delorean will always be the original plutonium unit though. Stupid libyans.

For all the fails and flops from Forza in the last bunch of years this game has been great. Tons of unique cars like early Forza Motorsport, just wish it had actual race tracks. Forza Motorsport should have been left a stillborn, it's worse than FM5 and that one atleast had the excuse of being a launch for a new system.
