With “The Batman” setting a new weekend box office record for 2022 with a $128.5-million USD opening, it’s no surprise that some are looking to either build or acquire their own Batmobile. Over the past few years, one of these custom-built vehicles has really stood out, and it’s engineer Casey Putsch’s jet-powered Batmobile. Simply put, he started with a shell before finding a stretched C4-generation Corvette to use as the frame.
Warner Bros. showcased one of the four Batmobiles used during the filming of Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” movie at the London premier, and Car Throttle got the chance to look at the vehicle up-close. This vehicle was reportedly based on the muscle cars from the 1950s – 1960s, powered by a custom exposed V8 engine that generates around 650 horsepower, thanks to a twin-turbocharger system.
With “The Batman” set to hit theaters next week, Switzerland-based Kross Studio debuts a new $100,000 USD Luxury Collector Set that consists of a 45mm black DLC titanium movie-themed central tourbillon watch and a light up Bat-Signal art piece.

Its surface allows light to filter through and lets you view the regulator below, which makes one revolution per minute.

In the comics, the Batcave refers to a subterranean location that consists of caves beneath Bruce Wayne’s personal residence, Wayne Manor. For those who have always wanted something similar, and just as stealthy, there is IdealPark’s Car Lift (IP1-CM MOB). The company recently installed on at a luxurious home called “Casa da Qinta da Marinha” in Portugal and when not in use, is completely hidden away in the basement.
You know you’re a DC Comics fanatic, when the first thought that comes to your mind after seeing “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is to build a replica of its Batmobile. First off, it’s not a 100% replica, but rather one that looks 99% of the part, powered by a supercharged Ford F350 Raptor engine making 700 horsepower. The massive wheels you see out back aren’t inflatable, just ones that weigh over 2,200-pounds alone.
Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” film is hitting theaters on March 4th, and what better way to celebrate than by building your very own Batmobile? Nguyen Dac Chung, a 23-year-old architecture student, did just that and took things to the next level. He created what could quite possibly be the world’s first full-sized electric Tumbler, the same one seen in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” trilogy.

In the comic book world, Batman’s personal motorcycle is a modified street-bike with a 786cc liquid-cooled V-4 engine equipped with a computer-controlled carburetor and bulletproof wind-guard. However, in The Dark Knight trilogy, the bike, called a Batpod, has 20″ tires and is powered by a high-performance, water-cooled, single-cylinder engine. With “The Batman” set for release on March 4, 2022 in theaters, it’s only fitting that the superhero get an all-electric autonomous version to fight crime.
Sure, Batman may not be able to fit into a McMurtry Spéirling, but there’s no denying that it drew inspiration from the Batmobile, or at least one iteration of it. Starting from the exterior, we have a full carbon fiber monocoque with carbon fiber crash structures and bodywork to keep things as light as possible – under 2200-pounds.
