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…)
Cars.co.za has released yet another interesting and useful infographic to shed some light on the automotive scene in South Africa.
Last month, we published their infographic on May 2013, and now we bring you June’s numbers. It is quite interesting to compare the two; has he automotive scene picked up or has it dropped over the last month?
In May of this year, the total amount of new car sales in the country reached 53 997. This month, the figure came freakishly close to May’s number, clocking in at 53 562.
South Africans’ favourite cars have basically stayed the same, with a little change up in the ranks:

Ford sales have gone online in the UK. As many as 50 dealers wholly-owned by Ford have kicked off vending new and pre-owned models over the Net from June 29.
With a survey having revealed that close to four in ten buyers look at buying their next car on the internet, the Ford initiative stands the chance of triggering rivals too to take the Net sales route. The carmaker’s UK dealers have begun lining up models ranging from the Ka, to Focus, Mondeo and the Galaxy people-carrier for purchase via the email.
Customers also have the option of getting in touch with a new call-centre that would help in placing orders. The Net sales efforts work in such a way that every new car will be delivered by FordOnline.co.uk to one of 12 regional delivery centers, where customers can do a final check, sign a final document and drive home in the new model purchased.
Price tags will be the same as what the Ford cars sport at dealerships. [via Telegraph]
