The Batmobile On The Streets Of London. This car is totally insane and puts all the Lamborghinis and Ferraris to shame where ever it goes! The Tumbler doesn’t even look like a car, but it’s actually real. Ish. The Batmobile is a major reason kids love Batman. You could even make an argument that, if not for the car that’s always awesome in any iteration, Batman is basically just another caped crusader running around dressed as a rat with wings. The working prototype can hit 60 mph faster than most road-going cars and the movie version has a vertical leap of 30 feet. Add in an array of weapons, gadgets, and features that would make James Bond blush, and you’ve got one seriously impressive Batmobile. the whole point of camouflage is to blend a vehicle into its surroundings. On a city street, it’s even less subtle than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hummer.The superhero’s car, created in the 1960s, is expected to fetch more than £75,000 when it goes under the hammer.Meanwhile, the rusty yellow three-wheeler, with ‘Trotter’s Independent Trading Co’ emblazoned on the side, comes with a possible price tag of up to £20,000. The two motoring icons are some of the vehicles for sale at Coys Spring Classics auction in London.
The Batmobile was designed when the superhero broke a leg in the 1950s and faithful sidekick Robin built the vehicle to help him continue to protect Gotham City.
