H/t: Car Scoops
Tim Burton’s “Batman” movie, released on June 23, 1989 in the United States, featured one of the most famous Batmobiles ever. It was designed by conceptual illustrator Julian Caldow, while Keith Short sculpted the final body of the 1989 Batmobile, including the two Browning machine guns. One fan went as far as creating a stunning replica of this movie vehicle using a 1976 Cadillac Eldorado.
Power comes from a 502 CI Cadillac fuel injected V8 engine making 215 hp @ 3600 rpm and 399 lb-ft of torque @ 2000rpm, mated to a 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The canopy and weapons are fully automated and controlled remotely using linear actuators, while an air ride suspension ensures that you can safely make it through parking lots as well as up steep driveways. Other features include a backup camera, bomber-style dashboard, air conditioning, and even a custom trailer. Mecum Auctions is sure to garner lots of interest when the lot goes live at one of their upcoming events.
