Guy Built Christopher Nolan’s Batmobile ‘Tumbler’ Out Of A Minivan

Thinking of getting rid of your rusty, old minivan? Well, don’t. Not at least until you have read this. What you see here is the modern day pop culture, the Batmobile, AKA Tumbler, made famous by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, DIY-ed entirely in the garage. Granted, this is a rather crude contraption, but you’d be impressed if you know that it actually has a minivan underpinning. Yes. That’s right. This is in fact a bat-minivan, or batvan, if you will. Cobbled by Instructables member Kid Hero who we’d hailed as a real-life superhero for making minivan great again. It may not look exactly like the movies’, it does look reasonably decent.

Batman Tumbler Golf Cart

we don’t do many golf carts here, but if we do, you can be sure it will be one heck of a (golf course) ride, like this Batman Tumbler Golf Cart that is currently on eBay going for a cool $17,500. it is listed as “used”, but still, it looks kind of too cute to resist. described by its seller as “one of a kind”, this Dark Knight’s golf course ride of choice started life as an EZ-Go Golf Cart and was stripped down to the frame and four cup holders (!), and after which, custom frame and sheet metal, along with sculpted, molded cowl are fitted to it. it took its creator some 30 grand to turn that the boring EZ-Go ride into one that you see here and according to the seller, it spent a quarter of its time on a studio lot, with the rest of time kept indoors as a display (which we would gladly do if we have that kind of money to drop).

Batman Tumbler Replica for Gumball 3000 Rally

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.
