If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, always gets the best gadgets and rides money can buy, and therefore, to think that the billionaire masked crimefighter will use a Toyota Camry as his ride of choice when he go about kicking baddies’ ass is nothing less than absurd. Seriously, Joker will probably die laughing. However, if he ever go broke, who knows he may resort to converting a lacklustre ride into his Batmobile like what this Imgur user did. But, of course, knowing the Bat, he will probably tricked out the drivetrain to maybe include jet engine(s) and the requisite afterburner(s), along with Bat-ish not-so-aero aero kit and a bunch of seemingly just-for-show bits. And how can we forget the Batman’s favorite color, black for the paint job, eh? Continue reading If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride
