Could the TARDIS beat a DeLorean?

A new Google Map allows you to test the speeds of a number of different modes of transport and find out which is the fastest way to travel.

Just enter a starting point and a destination into Are We There Yet? and pick your preferred mode of transport. You can choose from a number of vehicles, including a TARDIS, a DeLorean, a broomstick, Santa's sleigh or even a dinosaur.

Your chosen route is subsequently displayed on a Google Map. You can then watch a simulation of your chosen vehicle driving the route. You are also provided with some vital statistics for your journey, such as the average speed, distance and the total time of the journey.

Strangely the time-traveling vehicular options (the TARDIS and the DeLorean) are surprisingly slow.
