It’s no secret that we are huge fans of the Batmobile. The iconic superhero vehicle has become one of the most recognisable fantasy cars of all time and is loved by man Batman fans around the world.
There have also been various different Batmobiles over the years, the most famous of them probably being the legendary Tumbler and most recently, we have seen some exclusive sneak peeks at the newest, upcoming Batmobile that will see Ben Affleck as Batman behind the wheel.
And while we are so used to seeing these modern day Batmobiles, it came as a refreshing change when we got to lay our eyes on this gem in the history of Batmobiles – the very first, official Batmobile.
Sure, there may have been other Batmobiles before this one or Batmobile-inspired cars, this specific one is the earliest known officially licensed Batmobile. (more…)
In the world of Superheroes and comic books, there is one hero that undoubtedly has the coolest ride of them all – Batman. The Batmobile has become such an integral part of the comic book world and pop culture, that everyone is always excited to see how this car evolves.
The most recent adaption of the Batman story is s crossover movie with Superman. ‘Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is the first full length feature film where we will see the two famed superheroes together in a film.
And, of course, Batman will show off his super cool Batmobile in the hopes of trumping the flying Superman. (more…)
The latest Batman movie is set to start shooting soon, and will also feature another famed hero – Superman. While Superman doesn’t need a car to get around (he flies, remember) Ol’ Bruce Wayne sure does. And his car, the Batmobile, is one of the most famous fictional cars ever.
Thus, it came as no surprise that Batman and automobile fans alike were more excited about the Batmobile in the new movie than the man himself. And luckily for said fans, director Zack Snyder gave them exactly what they wanted.
Snyder recently posted a mystical picture to his Twitter account – which is very obviously the backside of the (new) Batmobile. (more…)
One thing is for sure. Whether you are male or female, a fan of Batman or not, all of us have thought about what it would feel like to drive the Batmobile at some point or another.
Wouldn’t it be great to evade the traffic cops and track down criminals (bad drivers) in your very own Batmobile? Yes it would. And now, you can – as one of Batman’s famous Batmobile replicas has just been put up for sale.
The Tumbler is a version of the Batmobile found in the Dark Knight trilogy. While Christian Bale (aka Batman) got to drive around in one, 5 other replicas were made around the world and at least one of them can be yours. (more…)
The BatSmart is apparently a cozy little stylish Batmobile that is made just for two people. But looking at the hot Catwoman (who unveiled it), we can’t be sure there’s room for two. Signed by George Barris and made by scissor door kitmaker Vertical Doors, it is true to the original design of the Batmobile in every aspect. Sure, the rear air filter jet engine outlet does not work, but when you are in the company of such sexy curves (meoooow), crime fighting sure can wait! We just hope that Batman and Robin don’t jump into it to create a Superhero version of Brokeback Mountain! [via Jalopnik]
