Re: A realistic batmobile?


A guy by the name of Mark Shields, built an '89 inspired batmobile with a 78 Stingray. Check it out here:

And some pics:

Mark owns that, but a guy by the name of randy Hecht actually built it, or had a guy build it for him...not sure.
I started to buy that from Randy about 6 or 7 years ago.

I was just going off the article I found, thanks for clearing that up. I think it needs a ground kit though to complete the "look".

Re: A realistic batmobile?


If the word is realistic, with no phony jet, the Jag is a slick front runner. The XJ220 is a supercar produced by Jaguar luxury marque in collaboration with Tom Walkinshaw Racing as Jaguar Sport between 1992 and 1994. It held the record for the highest top speed of a production car (350 km/h, 217 mph) until the arrival of the McLaren F1 in 1994. Of course, eventually, I believe in an electric motor energized by fuel cells that would be super-stealthy and have torque for 0-60 in < 3.4 seconds.

I think my TA with some black rims would look amazing as a Batmobile

Thanks for posting those interesting shots. I love seeing the Mustang and Corvettes.
A friend at work purchased a limited edition Shelby Mustang, which looks very similar to the black one, except he chose white.

Re: A realistic batmobile?


I think a modified car works best as a Bat....Gotham cruiser, Batman's car was designed to be unique, not the same as all the other cars around it. Even Adam West's car looked different from the vehicles around it in the original series, even though it was based on an easily accessable car.

Mark Shield's car is a great example of how to make a normal car look more like a Gotham cruiser, without it blending in too much. Me personally, I'd go with the Tumbler, scare the crap out of the bad guys...YEAH!! :rollin It might not be practicle for parking in the local supermarket carpark, but that's why Bruce has all those nice sports cars stashed away in his garage.

Re: A realistic batmobile?


When we're talking about a "realistic" batmobile, I think something like the Bugatti Veyron has the form and technical engineering to be a good platform for a batmobile. 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, top speed of 253 MPH, AWD, and can beat a McLaren F1 to 200 MPH even if it lets the McLaren get to 100 MPH before it even launches of the line. Granted all that, much more technology would still have to be incorporated (link to the bat-computer in the cave, communications gear, ejector seats ... grappling hook to link onto a conveniently placed telephone pole for an abrupt left hand turn at ridiculous speeds in Gotham traffic).

But with a bit of body paneling and some imagination, it bears much resemblance to the first batmobile used in "The Batman" series.
