Love it, just too bad it was designed more by Hollywood than automotive engineers.

Thumbs down

how is that a batmobile? More like kakamobile. The car in the 1st 2 movies is still the best. Tim Burton's movies were way better than the other piece of sh*t movies. The others looked more comical than realistic.

This is the real Batmobile... I don't know WTF that other thing is at the top of the page. I also heard Bruce Wain drives a Murciélago Roadster in the movie... That would has been better since Murciélago means BAT in Italian.

In the earlier movies he has already been batman for a while so he developed a cooler batmobile. In this movie he is becoming batman for the first time and this is supposed to be the first batmobile, so he takes a military prototype vehicle that his company had developed and uses it. It actually makes sense in the contect of the movie.

Which begs the question how in the heck is a Murcielago available way back then, when he was becoming Batman.

This car is in the new Top Gear (6/14). It's a completely-buit-from-the-ground-up "car". Designed, apparently, by British car engineers.

They are starting from scratch with this movie (because those last couple were real stinkers) so the timeline is different.

Reviews for this movie are actually good! back to the Dark Knight Returns comics. Apparently dark beyond the darkness of the first Tim Burton one. The directors the guy who did Momento, So hopefully this one will be worth your $10

B Team Driver driver.
