The Home-Built Dark Knight Batmobile

ElectricSteve writes “RM Auctions recently declared James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 to be ‘the world’s most famous car,’ but there’s no doubt that there is another contender for that title – the Batmobile. One thing that muddies the waters a bit is the fact that the term ‘Batmobile’ actually describes at least three different vehicles: the modified Lincoln Futura concept car from the 60s TV series, the vaguely Corvette-shaped 1989-and-beyond movie cars and now the car from the most recent two movies, the military-spec Tumbler. Michigan-based movie props artist Bob Dullam really likes the Tumbler, so he did what any of us would do in his position – he built one of his own from scratch.”
