Not quite true, Universal asked a UK based DeLorean parts "vendor" at the time, called Top Gun, for a car to use for publicity in the UK for the release of the 3rd film. They put a BTTF car togther with parts they had, they had a rolling chassis, underbody and panels etc. They removed the engine from the rolling chassis as it would not be needed. This engine ended up with the DOC UK club treasurer who sold parts off it thru the years, in fact there are a few bits on my car :), and he was left with the block etc. When Andy Snell was restoring the 'Explodaview' car he purchased the rest of the engine which he rebuilt to go into his car. The BTTF publicity car can now been seen at the 'Cars of the Stars' museum which is located Cumbria, UK.
