What if the DeLorean in ‘Back to the Future’ was an Old Fiat?

If Marty McFly tried speeding back to the future in an old Fiat 500 instead of a DeLorean, would he even make it to 88.8 miles per hour? It’s questionable. Graphic Designer/Illustrator Gerald Bear’s great new series, Unconventional Heroes, imagines a world where the cars in our favorite cult films and television are a lot less super… and far, far smaller.

Using mostly tiny mid-century european vehicles, each vintage set of wheels is a perfect tribute to the original. From a BMW Isetta for Speed Racer’s Mach 5, to a Vespa for Akira’s slick motorcycle, all the iconic paint work and accessories are included. It’s fun to imagine a film where these vehicles would fit in, perhaps with our heroes trying to eke out a living in some small cafe or circling the city trying to find a parking spot… in between saving the day of course.
