Buy the original 1989 Batmobile for $1.1 million and drive it crazy
Making a Batmobile sure takes guts and a lot of time. Probably that is why die hard Batman fans make their own custom Batmobile which is inspired by the ones shown in movies. But it is one thing creating your own Batmobile and owning the original car. Original Batman director Tim Burton’s Batmobile driven by Michael Keaton in the 1989 movie is now up for sale at a staggering price tag of $1.1 million. This stunning car powered by a big block 7.5 liter V8 engine has already driven 22,600 km on road and it is left to your guts if you can take it to a top speed of 156 mph assisted by 550 horsepower.
The Batmobile is built around an extended Chevrolet sedan frame which provides ample space for the huge engine unit and seating for Gotham’s superhero. The machine has a coating of matte black paint on the lightweight fiberglass frame which takes the total weight of this car to 1750 kg. It has a Warner Brothers certificate for being one of the best in the world, making it a valuable Batmobile to own.
There is a sunroof, air conditioner to keep the superhero (the owner) cozy inside the two-seater vehicle. The interiors are draped in leather upholstery themed in dark color. Sadly the car is only up for sale in Moscow and you’ll have to figure out a way to grab it if you live in some other part of the globe.
