I've been critically reviewing fandoms and geek culture for eight years. After spending four years of college focusing on literary analysis, I now apply that passion to my hobbies and love for the geekdom.

Many Batmans have come and gone. With them we have seen many renditions of the Batmobile. Only recently did we get the big reveal for Pattinson’s Batmobile.
But- are any of them really, truly, as iconic as Keaton’s Batmobile.
Released 1989, the Keaton Batmobile from Tim Burton’s rendition of the Batman is one true beauty. With a jet turbine engine, a passenger’s side monitor, self-diagnostics system, CD recorder, and voice-command operation and recognition system. I mean, what more could you ask for? This baby also included:

  • Side-mounted grappling hook launchers, disc projectile launchers and bomb dispensers.
  • Side chassis-mounted shin-breakers.
  • A central “foot” underneath the vehicle that was capable of lifting the car and rotating it 180°.
  • Armour plated body with an additional “Cocoon” of heavy armor capable of being deployed while vehicle was stationary (dubbed “Cocoon-mode”).
  • Rear oil slick dispensers and smoke emitters.
  • Two forward mounted Browning M1919 .30 caliber machine guns.
  • An emergency “Batmissile” mode that shed all material outside of the central fuselage and reconfigured the wheels and axles to fit through narrow openings. Once employed, the mode essentially destroyed the car’s exterior, and required rebuilding afterwards.

Now listed at Toy Barn, this turbine-powered Batmobile was created by Casey Putsch, featuring a 400-horsepower Boeing turboshaft engine from a drone anti-submarine attack helicopter, mated to a four-speed semi-automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. It works like the turbine-powered Indy cars or the Chrysler turbine car from the ’60s.

To top it all off, this puppy is completely road legal and capable of being your daily driver!

One thing to note however, is that it runs on Jet-A fuel or Kerosene. Also that it guzzles fuel like nobody’s business. And oh, those Browning machine guns are also just replicas, but they do work and fire blanks from oxygen and propane at the push of a button.

Watch this video below to see how this one-of-a-kind Batmobile replica was built:
