The new Batmobile is a monster that can hit 330 km/hr
Whether or not anyone follows the Batman series, everyone knows what the Batmobile actually is. The famous car of DC Comic’s superhero Batman, the Batmobile has evolved along with the character from the comic books to television and films reflecting evolving car technologies. The first original version of the Batmobile was only a red convertible that did not have any tech gadgets as such. However, as time passed by the vehicle turned into a sleek, futuristic, mean machine which has different kinds of weaponry attached to it.
The pictures you see here is of the latest generation Batmobile which will be seen in the upcoming movie Batman vs Superman, and you can very well see the guns as well. These are twin .50 caliber retractable machine gun turrets, which are mounted on the front of the fully armoured vehicle. The latest Batmobile was officially unveiled at the 2015 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
The mobile as such is 20 feet long (wohhh…), 12 feet wide and weighs a whopping 3175 kgs. According to details, it will also be stealth capable, will feature ‘active protection systems’, ‘anti-ballistic’ technologies and full armour plating as well. The top speed of the monstrous looking car is rated at 330 km/hr. The top speed of the vehicle still remains to be a fact that can be further explained because further technical details regarding the powertrain have not yet been revealed. So it’s still not known whether it will borrow the same from the ‘Tumbler’ Batmobile and use the Chevy V8 engine that generates 400 BHP or not.
Whatever the engine, it should be capable of producing a whole lot of power because the added guns and armour plating will only result in the vehicle becoming very heavy, crossing the three ton mark. The film pits Batman and Superman together for the first time ever and will be releasing sometime next year. The movie is expected to become a very big blockbuster and you will have to wait until then to catch a glimpse of the new Batmobile, which feels like ages doesn’t it? Anyhow, let us know what you feel about the new superfast Batmobile.
