Caresto is a Swedish company that specializes in automotive design, development, and building prototype cars. If you could do all those things, and you told me you wouldn’t at least want to try building a Batmobile, I’d have trouble believing you, especially now that Caresto has built what may be the most amazing…
One of the best things about Batman as a superhero is that he actually has a need for a car. Superman just doesn’t need one, Spider-Man is too broke, Aquaman has the wrong address, Wonder Woman has that invisible jet, and on and on. Batman is unique in his need for a Batmobile, which is why it’s such a shame so many…
Batman has to go to pretty extreme lengths to keep his bat-themed
fetish vigilantism super secret, and when it comes to something as big as an armored and armed crime-fighting Batmobile of mass destruction, it can be tough to cover up. Unfortunately for Batman, and those wishing to avoid spoilers, we now know where…
The most iconic custom car builder of the most iconic custom cars to grace a TV screen, George Barris, is reportedly dead.
Warner Brothers Studios just added the Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice Batmobile to their picture-car vault, where it joins its bat-tastic brethren for the first time as part of the studio tour.
Whether the campy ‘60s TV version or the brooding crime fighter from Chris Nolan’s trilogy, it’s safe to say everybody’s batty about Batman. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Geo is a homage to Bob Kane’s malleable crime fighter, but will it’s price have you exclaiming Holy Bank Robbery, Batman!?
To commemorate their first victory in the United States at Sebring 40 years ago, BMW whipped out a classic livery that's unmistakably BMW for the BMW Team RLL Z4Ms: the livery of its 1975 3.0 CSL, lovingly known for its outlandish wings and flares as the "Batmobile."
Last year the Batmobile from the famed 1960s TV series sold for a whopping $4.2 million at auction. Its little-known predecessor — the first DC Comics-licensed Batmobile — didn't fare nearly as well.
Most people think that that real-life Batmobiles started with the famous George Barris-customized Lincoln Futura that starred in the camp-tacular 1960s Batman TV series. But there was one officially-licensed Batmobile that had Barris beat by years, and now it's for sale.
It can't be possible. I refuse to believe it. But there are reports circling that the Batmobile has been stolen from the set of Batman Vs. Superman in Detroit.
Batman's director, Zach Snyder, has put the rumors to rest. This is the new Batmobile, and that sound you hear is the simultaneous bowel evacuation of the villains of Gotham.
Well, it's the Canadian Batmobile being pulled over, at least. This was shot on Saturday, in Woodbridge, Ontario, and it looks like it's the 1989 movie Batmobile, a fine choice for city driving. But why was the World's Greatest Detective pulled over?
On a hapless quest through the internet for pictures of a "Cadillac boat," a reader stumbled across someone's long-neglected home-made custom job. It's a pink 1970something Cadillac, stretched into the shape of a guitar with fighter jet tail fins topping it of. What?
As the Gumball 3000 commences the European leg of its 2014 tour, one car that generated a considerable amount of hype and press for the event is conspicuously absent: the Tumbler Batmobile replica. The car's inability to run in the rally has created a very public rift between its builders and the team running it.
26-year-old Li Weilei and friends have built a full-scale Tumbler Batmobile replica out of scrap metal at a warehouse in Shanghai. Doesn't look quite as off-road ready as the new batmobile, but apparently it was built for about 11 grand. Oh, and it can't actually move under its own power.
More than any other superhero, Batman is known for his car. In fact, he's one of the few major superheroes to even have a car worth a damn, anyway. I think I once saw Superman parking a Geo Prizm. That's why the Batmobile is so important, and why there've been so many of the things.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet the new face of vehicular crime fighting (and apparently Superman fighting) in Gotham City. This is the Batmobile that will make its debut in Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman, the sequel to Man of Steel due out in 2016.
