Remember that monstrosity of a [’supposed’ Batmobile] that was created out a Camaro?
To the owner of that vehicle, you should take some notes from this one man from Sweden. This is how you make a Batmobile.
Word out of the streets of Sweden is that this real-life replica of the Batmobile was based on a 1973 Lincoln Continental chassis that has been modified with a slew of gadgets that would make even Batman’s utility belt obsolete. The Batmobile comes with rear-view video cameras, voice recognition controls, a height-adjustable suspension, GPS, a plasma screen TV, and of course, a DVD player.
For the car to look exactly like the one used in the first two Batman flicks directed by Tim Burton, the Swede reportedly spent close to $1 million and used up about 20,000 hours just to get the full scope of the Batmobile, right down to the minutest of details.
Seeing as this cost about as much as any supercar out there on the market, we’re compelled to throw our Camaro-inspired Batmobile a bone, if only because this guy had the resources to actually make a look-alike.
But about that ’Gothem City’ text? We still can’t forgive that.
