BAT­MO­BILE

Bat­man, 1989 & Bat­man Re­turns, 1992

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Movie Cars -

Tim Bur­ton’s 1989 Bat­man re­boot was the movie event of the year, partly thanks to the di­rec­tor’s Gothic aes­thetic. Ge­nius pro­duc­tion de­signer An­ton Furst reimag­ined the Bat­mo­bile as a pri­apic hot rod, with a huge jet tur­bine front and cen­tre, and air in­takes for the af­ter­burn­ers. Side­mounted grap­pling hooks and a cen­tral spar en­abled it to ro­tate through 180°, and the car could en­case it­self in full body ar­mour. For­get that there were two Chevy Im­pala chas­sis welded to­gether un­der­neath.
