LOOK: Batmobile recreation in search of a buyer

A life-sized replica of the Batmobile, as seen in Tim Burton’s “Batman” and “Batman Returns” movies, is set to go up for auction at Bonhams, Saturday, March 20. It’s estimated to fetch £20,000 to £30,000 (approximately $27,800 to $41,700, or about P1.35 million to P2.o2 million).

The model going under the hammer is believed to have been built a few years ago by the British firm Z Cars and is based on a 1965 Ford Mustang. Here, the original sports car has been given a space frame chassis and fiberglass body. It is powered by a Chevrolet 5.7-liter small block V8 engine producing a reported 380 bhp. The interior is also faithful to the cockpit developed by the superhero. Beware though, because while the buttons and controls may be present, there are no special gadgets installed in the car.

Measuring 6.7 meters long, this “Batmobile” is based on the model that featured in Tim Burton’s two Batman movies. Note too that the vehicle appears to be road legal (in the U.K., at least).

This replica will go on sale as part of an auction featuring around a hundred cars. JB
