DeLorean Police

Auto enthusiast Nigel Mills was caught doing 89 mph (143 km/h) in a DMC-12 on the road, and unfortunately, did not manage to travel back in time. However, he did get stopped by police. "I wasn't trying to time travel. It was at 11am on Sunday and the road was completely clear. I was being prosecuted for going 89mph (143 km/h) in a DeLorean, wasn't something special meant to happen at 88mph (141 km/h)," said Mills. Fortunately, he fought the speeding ticket in court, and had it thrown out after the cops who ticketed him didn't show.

Beats knockoffs are nothing new, but most try to stick with a name somewhat similar to the original, that is unless...you're talking about Sounds by Steve. While some people know what they're getting into when ordering things online, others skip the fine print and actually think they're getting a steal, but little do they know that all the time spent waiting for it to arrive have gone to naught.

Real Batpod

If money is no object, this real Batpod, one of six used in The Dark Knight Rises, could be yours if the price is right. Designd by Nathan Crowley and built by special-effects supervisor Chris Corbould, this unique vehicle features an entirely custom chassis, Hoosier racing tires, and is powered by a Honda 750 engine. Smooth fiberglass body panels are used to cover most the working components, while black foam padding was added for comfort. Should you be the lucky new owner, it comes complete with a metal display stand and a Warner Bros. certificate of authenticity. One caveat: this Batpod is in "rolling-only" mode, as all of its fluids, battery, fuel tank, and throttle controls have been removed for safety purposes. "Well-used on both productions, as well as in the promotion of the films as part of the Warner Bros. archive, the Batpod displays some wear to the body panels and some light corrosion on the chassis, with damage to the left gun mount as a result of use on set," according to the product page.
