When you will visit the Ford’s “build and price” page for either the 2016 Ford Fiesta or 2016 Ford Focus, they will be able to spec the compact hatchbacks with a flux capacitor — but only between Oct. 21 and 26 for “Back to the Future Day,” the dates to which Marty and Doc travelled. The price is $1,219,390; it is powered by 1.21 gigaWatts of energy.
The flux capacitor was the key component to Doctor Emmett Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean in the Back to the Future.
Once selected, you’ll be able to see how the flux capacitor looks embedded in the dash in place of the SYNC infotainment screen. Sure, now you won’t have navigation — but where you’re going, you won’t need roads.
The Ford flux capacitor appears to work when Fiesta or Focus nears 88 mph, the speed at which time travel is accessed, the flux capacitor flashes faster and faster before entering the time-leap. Once you traveled to your destination, Ford recommends that you “avoid your past self at all costs, as this could potentially cause a rift in the space-time continuum.”
