INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
If you’re in the market for a fully functional replica of the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, we know where you can find one. However, it’ll cost you, a lot. At least it certainly seems like a lot — but then again, I’ve never priced an urban crimefighting machine, so what do I know?
GTR Motors, a luxury-car dealership in Dubai, carries Ferraris, Bentleys, Mercedes, Land Rovers, Lamborghinis … and a two-year-old Tumbler. The vehicle boasts an 8-cylinder 5.7-liter engine and can reportedly reach 62 mph in 6 seconds flat, which, considering how much this monster must weigh, is pretty impressive.
If everything had gone as planned, sometime Wednesday a street-legal replica of Batman’s Tumblr from Christopher Nolan’s movie trilogy would be crossing the finish line in Ibiza in a triumphant conclusion to the Gumball 3000.
Unfortunately, those plans went awry before the annual 3,000-mile motor rally even got under way last week in Miami Beach, Florida.
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.
