It is not every day you find a Batmobile just abandoned in a field, my question is where did Batman go, and what caused him to leave his car stranded, or did the joker steal it?
Alright, we all have heard of Batman. If you are a late 80's and early 90's baby, you have either saw this "Batman 1989 Batmobile" version in T.V shows or movies growing up.
This version is by far one of the most beloved versions of the Batmobile ever released. The 1989 Batmobile was designed by Tim Burton, the car of course was designed to be in the 1989 Batman movie, but wait, that same version also made it to the sets of the 1992 Batman Returns movie as well. The Batmobile sat at 260 inches, decorated with bat wings and an exposed jet turbine engine in the rear of the Batmobile. The car also featured fully functional gadgets on the dashboard that in the movie allowed the car to perform insane tricks. The Batmobile's "jet turbine" afterburner can flow flames on command from the cockpit, now that is insane.
Gear Head can not confirm this is a real statement or not, but we have heard that the 1989 Batmobile hit 330 mph in the movie, with going 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds (without afterburner).
The 1989 Batmobile version was designed and built on a Chevy Impala chassis, while the body was taken from a 1970 Corvette.
This is the Batmobile version I grew up watching as a kid and that is why I find this find very cool, what about you? I also personally think that this version is way cooler any other version, even the new one.
This 1989 Batmobile version remake was reportedly found on the outskirts of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area; Gear Head is unable to confirm the exact location of the find. Gear Head has no idea how this 1989 Batmobile replica made it to an empty field in Texas, we do have sources telling us that it is from a Chicago-area Six Flags Park, however we have nothing to backup those claims being stated to us.
From looking at the photos provided you can see that this awesome replica of the 1989 Batmobile was well taking care of during its life, you can see that in the bodies condition. The dashboard still looks flawless as well. I would even say it looks good enough to confidently say it will start up and drive.
It is a shame that this Batmobile was just left out in the field and not in someone's shop, garage, barn or warehouse. If someone was to take their time with this Batmobile, I am sure it would turn over a pretty profit to a collector.
