Do you fight crime daily? Are you a fan of moulded rubber and black Latex? Do you want the true-to-life Batman experience? Well, you’re in luck — if you’re in Sydney, you can take Australia’s only Batmobile out for a spin.
Groupon is offering a limited number of joyrides in the car, available only to Sydney residents. The Batmobile, built over two years to match the one on screen in Tim Burton’s 1989 blockbuster, uses a custom chassis because no other road-going vehicle would match its long, sleek dimensions. It’s the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere, and one of only a few completed to this standard around the world.
Its body panels are spares from the original production, shipped to Australia and carefully fitted to the frame, and there’s space for one passenger in the Batmobile, alongside owner and creator Zac Mihajlovic — wearing, as you’d expect, a replica Batman suit and mask.
Groupon is selling 50 20-minute joyrides in the Batmobile, as well as 10 four-hour jaunts around the city as a ‘Gotham City’ experience. Personally, I prefer the Tumbler, but each to their own. [Groupon]
