Batman & Robin Batmobile

Batman & Robin Batmobile

The Fourth Batman film in the series that started with the 1989 Batman starred George Clooney in one of his less praised roles, with director Joel Schumacher going overboard in his mission to make the film look as “comic book” as possible. The film featured an outlandish plot and the batmobile was pushed in the same direction, to give it as much screen presence as possible, with a huge length bonnet, massive rear fins reminiscent of the original 60′s TV car, and open top single seat cabin and light up panels that glowed in red, orange, yellow and blue.

The car was about 30 feet long and designed by effects company TFX in conjunction with production designer Barbara Ling, and apparently tested to 140 mph.
