    LOL!

    I think they just look the same...the ideas might have been taken forom the Delorean, but over all Im pretty sure the animators and designers were just looking for that "cool and fast" look of the time.

    The Gadgetmobile seems to resemble a Mark II Toyota Supra, a Mitsubishi Starion (similar style car, with vents behind the window), or a Bricklin SV-1.

    I think the Delorian should be added to the list

    If my calculations are correct, once this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you're going to see some serious shit.

    More importantly, why would someone ever paint a Delorean?
