$1m Batman Tumbler Batmobile for sale in Dubai

Owner has plans to bring new Batman vs Superman batmobile to the market next year

$1m Batman Tumbler Batmobile for sale in Dubai

A replica of the Batman Tumbler Batmobile, as featured in the Dark Knight Trilogy, is on sale in Dubai for $1 million.

The 5.7 litre vehicle, which has an estimated top speed of 250km/h, was featured in a viral video on social media after it was spotted outside a car dealership in Dubai.

The owner of the vehicle who has put it up for sale says he has plans to bring the new Batman vs Superman batmobile to the market (pictured at the end of the story), according to a spokesperson.

The Batmobile is a replica of the vehicle used in the Dark Knight trilogy featuring the DC Comics hero Batman.

While it does not have the flying capability of the film version, the Batman Tumbler is powered by a Chevrolet Corvette V8 5.7 litre petrol engine that produces over 500 horsepower, and can be registered to legally drive on the UAE roads, according to the owner.

But just like the movie, the front of the car will rise up at high speeds, creating a giant spider effect as seen the trilogy of Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

 

The super swamper tyres at rear of the vehicle measure 44-inch in height, at the front there are two 18.5 inch Hoosier tyres.

The doors open up like Mercedes-Benz SLS, with cameras mounted around the vehicle to provide the driver with a view of all the blind spots.

At rear of the vehicle is the ‘jet engine’ which emits flames at the flick of a switch thanks to propane tanks located behind the radiators at the side of the car.

According to the owner’s spokesperson, there has been considerable interest in the car from all over the world,

“I have had calls from people from USA, France, Germany and Switzerland asking about the car,” the spokesperson said.

Basically, it is a replica of the orginal Bat mobile, and the asking price is U$1 million !!! We can always get Chinese replica with Chevey engine, and still pay less.

I'm sure that a propane tank blowing flames down the street and across the hood of the car behind it is not exactly street legal. Not even here. We've seen Lamborghinis catch fire here for lesser reasons.
