how would you spend 1.6 million dollars? plenty of ways, i guess. but for the folks at Team Galag, it means splurging all of it to put together a real life, road legal Batman Tumbler Replica. but why do they even want to do that? the reason is obvious: it is because they can and not only they can, they are going to put this awesome machine to the pace at the upcoming Gumball 3000 Rally, happening at Copenhagen starting May 18, 2013. of course, this isn’t the first Tumbler we have seen; we have seen Bob Dullam did it, but this one is different: it is going to the race. with some 400 hp squeezed out from its non-fire breathing 6.2-liter V8 engine, it makes a modest top speed of just 100 mph (160 km/h) – a speed that is obviously not going to win the race, but certainly will inject some fun into this year’s race event.

in any case, why wouldn’t it win at all if it can simply blow its competition right off the road? no, seriously. it can’t do that. also, i am really curious: will the pilot be dressed as Bruce Wayne or The Dark Knight? probably not either, but we will never know. after all, it is all in the name of fun. before you go on and enjoy seeing this Batman Tumbler Replica in action in the video below, here’s a little trivia for you: this vehicle is built in part, with the chopping experience of the Parker Brothers Concepts. yes. from the very same dudes who brought you the Green Machine and the all-electric Lightcycle. so, it got to be more than just awesome.
