When it comes to cars and superheros, there is one name that always comes to mind; Batman. With decades of cool cars, bikes, and all manner of petrol-powered madness, Batman is the king of car-guy super dudes. With that in mind, make this upcoming Halloween a celebration of the Dark Knight and his first on-screen vessel of transportation.
If you have $200,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can purchase an authentic replica of the , complete with Bluetooth Batphone and a jet turbine that actually spits fire. The turbine is just for looks, but this custom Lincoln chassis comes loaded with a 403-horsepower V8, so you can generate the speed to match. The builder added a few modern touches like a rearview camera and side mirrors to make this a usable and street-legal machine.
Of course, if you want to rock a period correct Batmobile, you must show up in a period correct Batsuit as well. There are dozens of great choices for Batman costumes, but the "Batman Classic 1966" from Grand Heritage Costumes is one of the nicest models on the market. MSRP is $127.99, but you can snag one for less than a Benjamin with a little searching.
Adam West may not have been the most stylish Batman, but he sure had a great car.
