Turbine-powered Batmobile for sale
The Batmobile’s on eBay. Not the Tumbler or one of those funny Lincoln Futura-based things - we mean THE Batmobile.
Well, we say THE Batmobile, we mean A Batmobile that’s about as close as anyone’s ever got to the real, fictitious thing from the Tim Burton movie, Batman.
Created by 29-year-old racecar builder, Casey Putsch, this thing isn’t some miserable lashed-up kit car - it’s got an ex-military Boeing turboshaft helicopter engine that produces 365 horsepower and happily runs on jet fuel, kerosene, or diesel.
Underneath, there’s fully independent, cockpit-adjustable suspension dangling from a steel tubular space/monocoque chassis, on top of which there’s fiberglass and aluminum bodywork.
In the centre console there’s an iPad 2 - Wayne Enterprises wallpaper, natch - which deals with the digital avionics.
The price? £379,669.
