Driving a Batmobile is the stuff of dreams as a kid, and Mike is getting to slide behind the wheel of one of the coolest ever seen on film - a replica of the 1989 Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batmobile. It's not quite the original jet turbine car, but a hefty Chevy V8 should do the trick!

    • I think a rotary from a Mazda RX-7 would be perfect for a Batmobile, both in speed and also sound.

  • I'm guessing the hand break reference is to it being an Austin Rover part and having one in his V8 Allegro build. And wow it was either gutless or he wasn't allowed to push it at all judging by the editing.

  • I find it annoying that it’ll get away with black plates yet I can’t put them on my car from 89, funky looking thing tho

    UHCredheadUHCredheadUukausi sitten
    • Realistically, why does it even need plates, "Help, police, a car hit me.". "Did you get its plates?" "No, but it's the 1989 Batmobile." "Sir, do you know how many of those there are in Britain? Oh, only one..."

      Jon JohnsonJon JohnsonUukausi sitten
  • Whenever an American mispronounces something British, we rightly get corrected. That isn’t a “5.7-litre V8”. That’s a “350 Chevy”. Just so you know. Cheers.

  • So, what does "based on a 1965 Mustang" mean? Is this a kit that just used the Mustang frame dimensions and wheelbase, or did they an actual Mustang for it? If the latter, I don't think even turning it into a Batmobile will save the owner from the Petrol Gods' karmic wrath of dropping a *Chevy* engine into *1965 Mustang.*
