A street-legal replica of the Batmobile, used in the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale, has gone on sale for $1 million.
Based on the already iconic ‘Tumbler’ Batmobile from Christopher Nolan’s “Batman Begins” and the Dark Knight films, the car has been custom-built from the ground up as an almost perfect replica — externally anyway.
Under the sculpted body panels you’ll find a General Motors LS series V8 engine, but you won’t find a Bat Pod motorbike escape vehicle or self-destruct system.
Instead, it’s been fitted with a decent stereo system, a DVD player, an iPod integration port and a global satnav system, all of which will probably be more useful in day-to-day situations of a non-crime-fighting nature.
Best of all in this regard are the cameras mounted around the car’s body to make it easier to maneuver along narrow streets and of course, to park.
The car sits on 44-inch wheels, complete with custom-built rims and, as it was built in the US, is available in left-hand-drive only. The company has built just five examples and each one has a $1 million price ta
