A BAT MOBILE!? 🦇🚘 #Gotham pic.twitter.com/jqZpKNecEa — Gotham (@Gotham) April 13, 2018 A year ago this month, audiences caught a glimpse of Bruce Wayne’s first vehicle on Fox’s primetime show “Gotham.” I took the liberty of calling it the “Batstang” or the Ford Mustang Batmobile — the latest version of Batman’s ride since “Dawn of […]
When Chevy unveiled the life-size LEGO Batmobile it had built to promote the upcoming LEGO Batman movie, the American automaker touted the amount of blood, sweat, and bat-tears that had gone into the project. According to Chevrolet, it took a combined 2,055 hours to put together the 344,187 LEGO bricks that make up the vehicle […]
With the upcoming release of The Lego Batman Movie, we thought we’d take a look at some infamous Batmobiles that have made appearances in television and film throughout the years. Take a peak to see what’s changed over time and what’s new on the all-new Batmobile from Chevy! Like This Infographic? Check out some others we’ve created
Okay, Chevy is officially just screwing with us right now. Shortly after parodying its own (highly suspect) “Real People, Not Actors” advertising campaign with a Cruze Hatchback ad featuring “Real Dogs, Not Actors,” the bowtie brand is going one step further, with a computer-animated commercial starring “Real LEGO Minifigures, Not Actors.” Very cute, Chevy. Very […]
Most of the outrageous concept cars at auto shows are little more than oversized toys for full-grown adults. The 17-foot long, 1,695.5-pound LEGO Batmobile from Chevy, however, holds the distinction of being an oversized toy for kids. Though many full-grown adults will be forgiven for falling in love with the Bat-brick vehicle, as well. With […]
In case you haven’t been keeping up with the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in California, here is what you need to know, as it pertains to automobiles, of course. DC Comics has been engaged in a lawsuit with Mark Towle, who created replica Batmobiles based off the 1966 TV show and 1989 movie, […]
The sound of an engine echoes through the streets. Like thunder, the engine’s roar serves as a forerunner to the sight that soon appears. Whipping around the corner like a bat out of hell is the powerful and fearsome Batmobile. However, these aren’t the streets of Gotham City, and Batman is not behind the wheel. […]
We’ve already seen (part of) the new Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but today we got a better look at the beast, courtesy of Jo Blo Movie Trailers: It appears to be an interesting portmanteau of two Batmobiles from days gone by. It has the same militarized armor shell as the Tumbler […]
As far as used car gems on Craigslist go, there are exceptional finds—like the Star Trek boogie van—and considerably less exceptional finds—like the 1998 LeSabre Truck, which is like the Kuato of cars. You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and sometimes you wind up with a friggin’ Batmobile. More […]
If you’ve ever pretended to be Batman, chances are you didn’t imagine yourself as any of the vintage iterations of the caped crusader. It is more fun to make Christian Bale impressions, after all. But, for those who read the original DC comics in the 1940’s and 1950’s, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has arrived to re-live those glory […]
Want to check out the world’s only street-legal Batmobile? You won’t have to travel to Gotham City to see it. Although, full disclosure, you will have to pack your bags and head to Sydney, Australia. That’s where 29-year-old Zac Mihajlovic built his street-legal Batmobile with his grandfather, John Greene, sans any formal mechanical training. It […]
Spoilers: yeah, probably, and it'll probably be the best part about the entire film.
As the months have worn on, we’ve gradually discovered more and more new bits about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We’ve seen the moody character reveals, including our first look at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. We’ve read about the big screen debut of the Cyborg character and the possibility of appearances from Aquaman and […]
The cover has come off of the Nissan Vision Gran Turismo model at last, hinting at a future design and sparing us all the trouble of having to memorize a long name that features a bunch of confusing letter/number nomenclature and way more punctuation than necessary. The NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is an […]
Well, don’t say Zack Snyder never did anything nice for you. Apparently, the director was in something of a giving mood today, providing fans with not just their first full look at the new Batmobile, but also at the man who will be driving it. Cape, cowl, and all. See the Batmobile transform in our […]
Zack Snyder, who is pretty likely to ruin your childhood fantasties of what a Batman/Superman film ought to be, says that the first full look at the Batmobile could come as early as tomorrow.
I’m going to go ahead and get this out of the way: whatever expectations you have for Batman Vs Superman, you can probably expect the actual film to fall well short of them. That is, of course, unless you’re like me (read: a miser) and you have almost no optimism whatsoever that Bats versus Supes can be […]
The trailer for Arkham Knight, scheduled to release later this year for next-gen consoles and PC, will feature a drivable Batmobile.
This morning, Warner Brothers confirmed through Game Informer that the next and final game in Rocksteady’s Batman video game series will release later this year. Batman: Arkham Knight will release sometime in 2014 for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and I couldn’t be any more excited. Its predecessors, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham […]

Ken Block is giving some much-deserved love to the iconic Fox Body Mustang with his latest creation. Block teamed with Ash Thorpe, who helped design the Batmobile for the upcoming film starring Robert Pattinson, to create the vision for the Hoonifox — a Fox Body-style Mustang with all-wheel drive and a real mean demeanor. Another […]
