A video appeared on the Internet, which captured a replica of the Batmobile, created on the basis of a sports Ford Mustang. The car received a powerful V8 engine from Chevy.

During its existence in cinematography, several versions of the Batmobile have been shown in the Batman film series. Whether it’s the futuristic cars from Christopher Nolen’s later films or the cars of the original Tim Burton, each one is special in its own way. Famed blogger Mike Ferney of YouTube channel Drivetribe recently showed a working copy of one of the very first Batmobiles in a video.

While most of Batman’s cars used in the films were based on a Chevy Impala, this particular superhero car replica is based on a 1965 Ford Mustang.

The car is obviously built from a space frame chassis connected to fiberglass body panels – the car is a gigantic 6 meters long.

Apart from a special sliding door through which you can access the interior, all the components inside are very utilitarian – most of them are only intended for motorsport. While the original cars for the Batman movie were allegedly powered by a 10,000 horsepower turbine jet engine capable of accelerating the car to speeds of 483 km / h or more, this car is far less powerful.

The example in the video is powered by a much less powerful 5.7-liter Chevrolet V8 engine that develops approximately 380bhp. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the car has two turbines – both visible from the outside – they are actually not real and not connected to the engine.

Fortunately, it doesn’t really matter as Fernie is lucky enough to take the Betmobile for a little test drive. With a very large, long and fuzzy brake pedal, piloting this Betmobile – even at low speeds – seemed quite intimidating.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that a dubious replica of the Ferrari Enzo supercar was made from an inexpensive Pontiac Fiero. The Italian model is one-of-a-kind and very expensive, but Cars & Bids sells a Ferrari Enzo replica. So you don’t have to be a multimillionaire to get a Ferrari.
