During the filming of 'Batman Begins' the movie makers
used 8 different Batmobile's (called the Tumbler), four
of which were drivable and surprisingly rapid. The Batmobiles
were powered using 340 horsepower GM 350 V8's giving them
a 0-60 time of around 5.3 seconds and a theoretical top
speed of 220 miles per hour. The design is based on a
cross between a Lamborghini
Countach and a Humvee. The designer actually bought
an airfix model of both the Countach and Humvee and played
around with the models until the desired look was achived.
The four massive rear tyres are 44 inch 'super swampers'
and the front axle is nonexistent instead the front wheels
are on separate spars.
