Drive around in Your Own Flame-Spitting Batmobile if You’ve Got Cash to Burn
Then you could burn even more cash with your flaming Batmobile. Get it?
A street-legal replica of the Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie is being auctioned off in the UK. The car is no joke, either. It goes from 0 to 60 in under 3.7 seconds and actually shoots flames out of the rear opening. Does anyone have about £90,000 we could borrow? It’s for something real important.
We could watch the Batmobile do donuts all day if we weren’t blind with jealous rage.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Batmobile seen here, we’re not quite sure why you’d be interested in a Batmobile at all. The “Keaton-mobile,” nicknamed after Michael Keaton, who plays Batman in the film, is one of the most iconic Batmobile designs of all time. It has influenced similar designs in the comics and was the basis for the Batmobile in the beloved Batman: The Animated Series.
The complete specifications of the car and its crime fighting systems on the auction’s website are really impressive:
Special crime fighting gadgets include a fully operational flame thrower at the rear, hydraulic suspension enabling the car to be lifted a further nine inches off the ground, a smoke release mechanism, remote full releasing electronic canopy, remote ignition and full LED running lights, dashboard display and front and rear camera’s complete the specification. This vehicle is believed to be one of the best after-production, fully road-legal models ever made. The mileage is particularly low as it has mainly been transported from venue to venue and is described by the vendor as in excellent running order.
