Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
If Hammacher Schlemmer‘s $200,000 licensed, street-legal 1966 Batmobile is a little too cheap, or a little too dated, for your tastes, allow us to this roadworthy replica on the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Listed on the James Edition luxury goods website, the vehicle will only set you back … $1 million.
But, hey, it’s worth it: This concept car — it’s “inspired by the movie Batman Begins” — comes equipped with an eight-cylinder LS1 engine, four 44-inch super swamper tires with custom rims, five driver-assist cameras and a stereo with blue tooth, CD/DVD and iPod integration. Plus, it’s a limited edition; there are just five of these in the world.
“We have built this insane vehicle to be street legal,” the seller states, “however, please understand that this is not a daily driver!”
And, unlike that Hammacher Schlemmer vehicle, this one doesn’t appear to be licensed by Warner Bros., so the seller may expect a certified letter soon from the studio’s legal team.
