Street-legal replica of the Batmobile (Tumbler) on sale for $1m

A street-legal replica of the Batmobile, used in the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale, has gone on sale for $1m (£597,000).

The copy of the Caped Crusader’s crime-fighting machine, the Tumbler, is being sold by Florida-based J and S World Wide Holdings, according to a listing on the James Edition luxury marketplace website.

The replica two-seater has an automatic transmission and comes with five driver-assist cameras, Bluetooth technology, CD and DVD player, iPod integration and GPS technology, according to the seller’s description.

“We have built this insane vehicle to be street legal however please understand that this is not a daily driver!” the listing says.

The car, however, does not come complete with its film counterpart’s arsenal of weaponry.

The latest and most militaristic version of the Batmobile first appeared in director Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins.

The Batmobile has undergone several changes since custom car designer George Barris was credited with building the first model for the 1960s Batman TV series.

Barris’ version sold for $4.2m (£2.6m) at auction in January last year.

I wish this Batmobile was as fast as a Hennessey Venom GT. The Venom GT can reach 265 mph in 2 miles. Absurd speed. Here’s another video: from 0 to 200 mph in 15.2 seconds. Here’s the ride along with a Venom GT reaching 270 mph.
