Notes[]

  • The front covers of the U.S. and U.K. editions of the book each use a different black-and-white line illustration of the DeLorean. The U.S. edition depicts the DeLorean from the front with its gull-wing doors raised, which is not featured in the book itself; while the U.K. edition features the rear-view line illustration of the car used on the introductory pages of "Part I: DeLorean Time Machine (1985)".
  • The U.K. edition was published as DeLorean Time Machine: Doc Brown's Owners' Workshop Manual as opposed to the U.S. edition's 'Owner's Workshop Manual'.
  • The content of the U.K. edition is identical to that of the U.S. edition, complete with U.S. terms and spellings.
  • The U.K. edition also bears an orange flash along the bottom of the front cover, which features an illustration by Joe Walser of the flying DeLorean, reading "Also featuring the flying DeLorean, the Time Train, hoverboards, and more!".
