    Now THAT is suh-weet! I`m kind of surprised it`s street legal though, unless he was just driving it out there anyway.

    That thing wouldnt go fast at all. Once it hits a certain speed it would just flip.

    one speed bump and you`d bottom out.
    Or any driveway with a slope.

    this is the only true batmobile. all others are imitation

    All he needs now is the atomic batteries and Robin to do the checklist.

    Atomic batteries to power!
    Turbines to speed!

    doesnt look very fast. maybe it can reach a high top speed but doesnt seem to have very fast acceleration. then again, it could just be that he drives like a grandma....

    @coyoteking well no sh/it he`s on a public road, he`s not gonna just give it a sh/it ton of power cause I bet he`d wreck it. Take it to the salt flats and I bet that thing could take off quick.

    I`m MUCH MUCH more intrigued by the red car with white stripes in his garage.

    My first guess was a Ferrari 250 GTO... but It isn`t, the rear isn`t right, at all... Then I guessed maybe a Jaguar E-Type...not sure why you`d give what comes to my mind when I think of British cars, a red paint job... British Racing Green for good british cars...

    Can anyone else haphazard a guess?

    Also : It isn`t an E-Type, I know it isn`t, but it`s just what came to mind.

    Many people don`t know that back in the olden days of racing, Countries were assigned a color to signify the origin of the vehicle, not the driver.

    That is the reason many Italian Auto makers use red as a default paint color (Rosso Corsa/Racing Red); Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, as an hommage to those days.

    UK was given a dark green, British Racing Green.

    Germany was white or silver, or shiny white? I believe that is why Mercedez-Benz and BMW has many cars in that color (coincidence, or maybe just because it looks professional, engineered, like the way the cars are made).

    USA was given white with blue racing stripes. You`ll find these on the Shelby Cobra, the Ford GT, the Dodge Viper and the Corvette (and a few others, but none come to mind).

    I don`t know any others. I`m sure there`s a site somewhere that lists them all off with details, but I just found this was cool and fun info.

    thats pretty darn cool, i`d want to see it do a top speed run

    lol if it was used as the actual bat mobile, he wouldnt need any weapons- it would just deafen all his foes

    @Batmanners- I would be one of those that didn`t know. Good info!

    @yudontn9me- I completely agree.
    What the hell is the point of making such a badass car just to cruise around in? Take it to a strip and see what it can do! I`m too lazy to see if there`s a vid of that; if there is, iab should have posted it instead of this.

    That was like a giant case of blue balls. I got so excited, just to be completely let down. Wtf is the point of a turbine powered car if you arent going to use it.
