Students at Tanabe Technical High School in Wakayama, Japan have been spending over four years making a DeLorean replica out of 2-millimetre-thick aluminium.

The monument is located in front of the school, and four times a day during the week, it slowly spins around as the Back to the Future theme song plays, with the ok given from Hollywood.  

Work on the project began in 2016 on the 500 kg replica, Sankei reports, and over the years, around 500 students have worked on the project.

The school pointed out that the project was a good, tangible way for students to show their parents what they’ve been doing and to be proud of their work.
