When the going gets tough, you could either take public transportation or build ones of these. Let's see, I'll take the Tumbler for my daily driver, and the Converticoupe as a weekend cruiser. Continue reading to see them all.

1. Flatmobile

Ok, so it's not really the Batmobile, but the jet-powered, street legal "Flatmobile" -- also known as the world's lowest car -- definitely drew inspiration from its famous counterpart seen in the Batman movies. It has a ground clearance of 2", is 12'2" long / 5' 5" wide, and 19" high.

2. Converticoupe

Not your average wooden car, this one is two-faced, boasting both convertible and coupe (saloon-inspired) styled halves. It took a Ukranian designer -- who gave up his job and two others cars -- approximately 1.5-years to build. Underneath the hood, you'll find a 100hp engine.

3. Tumbler

Bob Dullam of Super Hero Hype spent between $50,000 - $70,000 building a life-sized replica of the Batman Batmobile Tumbler using nothing more than photos as reference. Every tool used was picked up at a local hardware store, aside from the engine.

4. F-35

Not just a model, this homemade F-35 Joint Strike Fighter by Arthur van Poppel can actually be driven like a car. There's even a flippable nose and passenger seat should you decide to bring a friend along for the ride -- added later.
