Griff's BMW 633CSi being waxed by his grandfather, Biff Tannen.

The BMW 633CSi is a model of BMW built between 1976 and 1989.


In 2015, Griff Tannen owned a heavily modified hover-converted version of the BMW 633CSi, which was a convertible orange and black model waxed for him (two coats, naturally) by his grandfather Biff Tannen, and in which Whitey, Data and Spike traveled with him as passengers.

Griff accidentally smashed the car's nearside taillight with his bat while swinging furiously at Marty McFly.

Whether the BMW could not be started by anyone except Griff, like the Ford Super De Luxe Convertible owned by his Grandpa Biff in 1955, remains unrecorded.

Behind the scenes

  • In the novelization by Craig Shaw Gardner, Griff's car is described as being "a beat-up old convertible" (quote, page 32), rather than the perfect, futuristic-looking BMW seen on-screen.


  • Anyone expecting to see in 2015 a futuristic, flying BMW of the make and model featured in Back to the Future Part II is going to be disappointed, as the BMW 633CSi is no longer being produced — something the movie makers obviously did not foresee.
  • As far as is known, BMW have no plans to produce a flying model in the foreseeable future.
