The caped crusader rides again in this custom Batmobile from Flicker Racing Factory. This Batmobile is 100% original, though it obviously employs styling cues from its predecesors.
About this creation
What if they make another Batman movie? They're going to need a slick Batmobile...
I've seen a lot of Tumblers around the net and I wondered why no one ever wondered what their own personal rendition of Batman's famous car would look like. (It's not that I have anything against the Tumbler, it was one of the cooler Bat-cars of all time. Everybody's got one; even I do now!)
Here's the money shot.
This Batmobile is somwhere between the Tumbler from Batman Begins and the Keaton car from the original Batman movie. Story-wise, it's the first car actually designed as the designated "Batmobile" (as you recall, the Tumbler was a shelved project intended for military use).
The knife-sharp profile.
Here's the bird's eye view (or would that be bat's eye view?). As you can see, lots of dramtic lines and flares help the Batmobile to stand out among other cheap imitations (as if you knew any other superheroes who have cool rides).
The Batmobile features an opening cockpit with everything the masked man could ever need. Machine guns can be activated from the hood and rockets on the rear fender flares keep bad guys and bank robbers (not to mention Two-Faces, Jokers, and Riddlers) at bay. The fins can fold down for a quick jump into the wild blue yonder (very useful for traveling through the some-what congested Gotham City traffic).
Let's hear it for big booties and big jet thrusters! (silence) Okay, okay. Here's the main 'thrust' of the power from the buisness end of the Batmobile.
The main thrust of the power comes from (obviously) the front-mounted turbine. To power the car at lower speeds, however, is a V-16 mounted in the rear (gas mileage is killer).
Here's the nice, coozy interior shot.
Please let me know what you think! (and the future tell me how it stacks up to Lego's UCS Batmobile)
Another killer-awesome view. I've always liked this view and it definitly makes the Batmobile look menacing (but that's the point, right?).
hey! another fan of Watson K-13?? your style is different but equally good! Now, please, in heaven's name, make the KIT-2000 as seen in Knightrider. People with your skills and black bricks should take on that challenge...
I like it
