• Cadillac CTS-V becomes the Batmobile

Add this to our growing list of pseudo Batmobiles patrolling the streets of the world these days.

A few days after the new 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe was unveiled at the LA Auto Show, one of its predecessors – the CTS-V - was spotted miles away in Pasadena sporting the Caped Crusader’s insignia on the car’s hood, trunk, and side-view mirror.

We didn’t know that Batman has a taste for a Cadillac CTS-V, but it sure would be fun if he showed up one night in the streets of Gotham – or in this case, Pasadena – running down criminals on this bad boy.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

O common. The car is already hot, why make it a geek car? Seriously. The owner must be that old and that fanatic of Batman or the owner just had his friends make fun of him.

I really like this car especially the front bumper and the side skirts matte. I don’t care about the logo coz’ if you will mimic the batmobile, you don’t need a logo just to say that it’s a batmobile. Work on the concept of body structure of a batmobile.

Batman inspired many car industry to make cars that is like what they see on Batman shows or movies. With this one, it is just another common Batmobile-influenced car. For me the best one will always be something that is as long as a limousine, but with the strength of a tank.

I’m not a big fan of the Cadillac or Batman. But if I were, I wouldn’t dare cross their paths and cause a disaster such as this. Pity they have wasted their bucks. We know it’s not Batman inside so don’t even try to convince us. Lol.

I don’t think Batman would choose a Cadillac, ever. He is so much better than that. And just in case he would go around looking for criminal boys, I hope I can hitch a ride with him.
