Ford Building a DeLorean-Like Flux Capacitor in Focus & Fiestas

Ford is offering a built-in flux capacitor in honor of today's momentous date as the time-travel destination of Marty and Doc in the Back to the Future II film. October 21, 2015 -- the exact date that the pair typed into the DeLorean time machine -- will mark the first day of the pseudo-promotion.

Ford Focus and Feistas purchased have the option to come with a time machine in the car's dashboard. The sleek flux capacitor is made up of a gold and red machine with three thin flashing lights, all enclosed in a glass rectangular box.

Garnering major attention for Ford and branding the car company as fun-loving and culturally hip, the ad even uses humorous warning subtitles at the bottom like, "Avoid your past self at all costs as this could potentially cause a rift in the space-time continuum."
