Great Scott! There’s a DeLorean Parked in Dupont Circle

Don’t tell Biff, but there’s a DeLorean parked in Dupont Circle right now.

The iconic car is parked in front of Fantom Comics (2010 P St. NW) to celebrate the day that Marty McFly landed in the future in “Back to the Future Part II,” which just so happens to be today, Oct. 21, 2015.

Locals can head to the comic shop any time today to take photos of the car, snatch a “save the clock tower” flyer and even buy the DeLorean itself for the low price of $24,500.

Aaron DeNu, the man behind Dupont Festival and the MidCity Business District, was the one who helped the comic shop procure a DeLorean for the day’s festivities.

“It’s so exciting,” said Esther Kim, manager at Fantom Comics. “The DeLorean is the most iconic thing to come out of the movie, except for maybe Marty McFly’s vest.”

Fantom Comics will give away comics and play music outside the shop today in preparation for its Back to the Future costume party tonight at 6 p.m.
