If you’ve ever pined for your very own Batmobile, the wait is over!
The fan-made vehicle known as the Tumbler, a professionally made recreation of the Batmobile as seen in the Dark Knight movie trilogy, is up for auction by Historics Auctioneers, which values the car at £90,000-120,000. Historics has partnered with Character Cars, makers of replica movie cars, to bring the vehicle to auction. Character Cars has also produced replicas of the cars from Ghostbusters and The Flintstones, James Bond’s DB5, additional Batman vehicles and others.
The car, which Historics believes to be the only one of its kind in the world available for purchase, is outfitted with a Toyota MR2 engine and manual gearbox. It sports oversized rear wheels that come from a military truck and front wheels similar to the kind used on drag cars. It’s got all kinds of fancy bells and whistles, including police sirens, flashing lights and a variety of gadgets and weapons, and inside, the car features racing seats. The only drawback is the vehicle isn’t street legal.
The auction will be held on March 2 at the Ascot Racecourse, located in Ascot in the United Kingdom, with pre-auction viewings on February 28 and March 1.
In a video on the car’s listing page on the Historics website, it’s noted that it has taken Historics nearly a year to plan and arrange the auction of the Tumbler. If you’re lucky enough to have a little extra cash lying around and plan to bid on this impressive piece of Batman fandom, we wish you luck (unless, like Harvey Dent, you make your own luck).
