the thing I always wondered as a kid is how the turbine could work if batman was sitting in the middle of it without incinerating him/chopping him to bits.

I wasn't ever much for suspension of disbelief.

There's a guy that lives about 20 min. away from me that owns one of the ones they used in the older movies. Never had seen the old movies so I couldn't tell you which one it was. I wonder how much that thing weighs.

The one from the TV show, I believe, was a Trans Am. Could be wrong though.

The Batmobile

The Complete History of the Batmobile
We're not sure what the connection is between carinsurance.org and Batman (a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, perhaps?), but we're duly impressed by the insurance site's graphical representation of the Caped Crusader's rides over the decades.

Amazing, never knew there were so many based on real cars.
My favorite is still 1992 Dark Knight cartoon show. I have all the episodes :p

Batmobile sells for $370,000
By Brett Davis | January 20th, 2011

Would you like people to say to you, with sincerity: ‘Watch out, Batman!’ while you’re reversing down your driveway? Well, if you’ve just bought this recently eBay’ed car, that might just happen. It’s one of the original Michael Keaton ‘Batmobiles’ and it has just been sold.



The winning bidder won the auction with a bid of $US370,000. The car came with all authenticity documentation, and, according to the seller, it was the best Batmobile out of the three that were used during the making of the film, Batman Returns.



Unfortunately, it isn’t powered by a fire-spitting jet engine but it does come with a 350ci (5.7-litre) Chevy V8 engine that offers a fairly timid 150kW of power. It also comes equipped with hydraulics designed to make the car easier to transport, and a custom trailer.



The car was sold on the 25th bid in Florida, USA.
I am so jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But needs a new engine for sure.
