Driving a Batmobile is the stuff of dreams as a kid, and Mike is getting to slide behind the wheel of one of the coolest ever seen on film - a replica of the 1989 Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batmobile. It's not quite the original jet turbine car, but a hefty Chevy V8 should do the trick!

    I think a rotary from a Mazda RX-7 would be perfect for a Batmobile, both in speed and also sound.

    I'm guessing the hand break reference is to it being an Austin Rover part and having one in his V8 Allegro build. And wow it was either gutless or he wasn't allowed to push it at all judging by the editing.

    So, what does "based on a 1965 Mustang" mean? Is this a kit that just used the Mustang frame dimensions and wheelbase, or did they an actual Mustang for it? If the latter, I don't think even turning it into a Batmobile will save the owner from the Petrol Gods' karmic wrath of dropping a *Chevy* engine into *1965 Mustang.*

    This was a weird video. It started off all exciting. Then it is about a car that was not in the movie, then it became clear that there is a turbine engine one but not this one. And then when it could not be more sadning a add starts about manscaping...... But that was not enough it had to be about testicular cancer. Highligting some of us will suffer it. I mean from the hope of escapism, fantasy and pure joy it went from realism to depression really quick. Maybe not do this add after making everyone excited over a bat mobile and lowering the excitement. Those things add up. Keep up the excitement though the energy made me at least watch 5 minutes. Else I would have clicked away after saying there are ones with a turbine engine. Watching those.
