Think the Batmobile is awesome?!


It IS, so you should think it is awesome! Did you know that the car/tank used in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight is an actual car, and acted as the pace car for a NASCAR race in 2005? Despite its existence as a Hollywood car, it has some awesome features such as being able to accelerate from 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds, and being able to jump 30 feet and land without damaging itself. Howstuffworks.com has all this information and more about the modern batmobile. (http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/batmobile.htm)

I am a sucker for Batman. I didn't like the vehicle when I first saw it in Batman Begins but it has grown on me. Keep up the good work.
