I wonder if they'll end up using the same car in the upcoming movie.

I never knew the real car would struggle to reach 88mph.

@fangio man

you can set the time machine to just the right time to achive 0-88mph in -1 second (jumping back in time to the time before he started accelerating)

@ Fangio Man: Oh yeah, Back To The Future, but it only had to go 88MPH to travel through time. :D BTW, 129 MPH?, I seriously doubt it, 125 maybe.

Why it should be faster?
It is a time machine!
You can reach every point in time.
No problem!
