A man has been clocked speeding his DeLorean at 88mph in Essex…. and no this isn’t a joke news story.
According to the Guardian, the 55-year-old Back to the Future fan, Nigel Mills, was heading towards the north of England when he was clocked doing the infamous speed.
“I wasn’t trying to time travel,” he said. “It was at 11am on Sunday and the road was completely clear.”
Mills, who paid £22,000 for his DeLorean, said he only takes the two-seater (not the car above) out a few times a year and had taken it out that particular day for a bit of “run around”.
He appeared before a magistrates court but the case was thrown out after the two officers who caught him speeding were absent from the court date.
While we do not condone speeding on roads, FTN got a bit of a kick out of the story when we read it!
