Batmobile Specs? - 24/7/2012 9:06:07 AM

I am currently in the midst of a major debate with a colleague about the specs of Tim Burton's Batmobile. I believe it was a prop car which was not capable of high speed, but my mate thinks that it is a full drag car capable of well over 300 mph.

Who is right?

"To build the car, the production team spliced together two Impala chassis, and the car was powered by a Chevy V8."

Thanks for the link mate. But It's just that we look up the car it list the specs including ten top speed as 330mph, but it's hard to tell whether they're talking about the "Character" of the Batmobile, or the actual prop car? ;-)

This video has a race between Burton's batmobile and the Adam West one. Can't remember off the top of my head but it might have some discussion of the actual capabilities of the cars. It does have a pretty lady in a bikini though. That much I do remember

Edit. Forgot to add link. Not sure how to do it on a mobile. Search batmobile race on youtube

If it's just powered by just a Chevy V8, it's probably not going to be able to do 330mph....

There is a replica built with an actual turbine engine which could do 180mph. Which is probably the one he is thinking of.

Considering that one has a Boeing jet engine and can only reach 180mph I would say the one with the Chevy V8 was quite a bit slower.


Nothing to see here.
