1989 Batmobile Replica
An instantly recognizable one word theme song, outrageous death
traps, ingenious gadgets, an army of dastardly villains and femme
fatales, and a pop-culture phenomenon unmatched for generations.
James Bond, right? Wrong. 1966's Batman television series
practically defined the comic book adaptation for the next three
decades with its distinctive visual flair and parade of celebrity
guests, even as it walked the line between loving adaptation and
straight-up parody. POW!
Gracing our main showroom and now offered for consignment, the
incredible opportunity to become the proud owner of this extremely
rare and equally as phenomenal Number 1 Six Flags Batmobile. While
not used in ANY of the Batman movies and not street legal, its
popularity stems from the Six Flags Batman Stunt Show. Always
drawing an ear piercing roar of applause during its stunt show from
the ever enthusiastic crowd to nearly the same applause mixed with
ooohhhs and aaahhhs from the guests of our Hallowed Halls. This
strikingly designed and very popular custom build was designed with
a hidden stunt driver compartment behind the cockpit, (more on this
later), and certainly produces the illusion of the car being
driverless as it roared around the stunt show as a voice controlled
masterpiece. Remaining environmentally friendly, with its 48v DC
drivetrain and functional flame thrower built into the "exhaust",
its hard for the Jones' to be able to keep up with this one.
Please Note: NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY*
All specially molded fiberglass borrows from many iconic cars and
blends them all together to produce this exotic car that almost
perfectly replicates the car from the first 2 Batman movies. A far
cry from the original George Barris creation from 1966. The nose of
this machine has fenders of a Daytona Prototype racer, however
reality ends there with a large central British Harrier jet engine
turbine plopped in the center. The thin long hood cozies up to more
race car styling with a wraparound window, closed cockpit design,
that accommodates the 3 passengers, yes 3...more on that later. The
roof has a large air scoop, and the entire cockpit finds itself
firmly planted between two bat styled fins that not only would make
a 59 Caddy green with envy but give the perfect allure of speed.
The side panels sport various fiberglass undulations, more air
intakes, and some authentic metal "steampunk" add ons to make it
look like it goes really fast. Out back, a central turbine exhaust
sits between the stepped and louvered fins and yes it is fully
functional. All this fantasyland of fiberglass sits on custom
15-inch wheels wrapped with Mickey Thompson rubber. The bat phone
has rung, the superhero outfits have been donned, and we are off to
fight crime in Gotham City. Thanks Alfred.
A press of a button and the fighter cockpit style canopy slides
forward to allow access for my crack decoder and myself. Under that
enclosed cockpit shell is a virtual fantasy land, (literally) of
buttons, levers, lights, control panels and an overabundance of
nonfunctional bells and whistles. One would honestly think they
were in the cockpit of a fighter jet moreso than a "car" if they
were to wake up in either passenger seat. The actual driver seat is
behind a secret black velcro in screen elevated above the front
buckets where the real driver sits. All part of the fantasy,
however, I fancy myself a Clooney Batman, rather than the Keaton
The KISS theory for the drive train which consists of a battery
powered 48V system complete with a kill switch hidden within the
"drivers' side" rear wing fin, and could be flipped by a film crew
member should any issues arise during the stunt show. There is a
working flamethrower, (no I didn't allow my crack decoder to grill
hotdogs behind the car), independent with airbags front suspension
and a 4 link with more bags for the rear. Speaking of which, on the
rear its a 10-bolt version. " Holy hooks Batman".
With a consignor stated top speed of approximately 25-30mph this
Batmobile isn't going to break land-speed records racing around
Gotham City. And due to the batteries having not been charged since
approximately 1993 we didn't want to risk a failure or fire.
Here is your opportunity to be the ONLY PERSON on your block to
have one of these. It's electric and has the hidden driver aspect.
The exterior is literally "bat shit crazy cool" as to its
curvaceous steampunked black fiberglass construction that borrows
from racing and a few classics, has several drops of psychedelics
peppered within, and is one of a kind. Come view this one of a kind
mammoth mammal at Classic Auto Mall...same Bat Time, same Bat
