If you're walking down the street and you see something strikingly similar to the Batmobile of 1989, your eyes are not deceiving you! Putsch Racing has adopted the concept from the 1989 Hollywood blockbuster and turned it into reality yet maintaining the similar cosmetic design concept. The car was designed and constructed by Casey Putsch and the most interesting feature is that it is the worlds only turbine powered replica of the Batmobile.
Bad guys beware, the Batmobile is gonna prowl the streets!
According to Putsch Racing, it is powered by a Boeing turbine engine from a decommissioned military helicopter. Regarding the car they say, “Putsch Racing has taken the fantasy of movie magic and the power from what was once used to protect our country and combined them into an exercise that inspires bigger dreams and opens creativity.”
Apart from having the 1989 look, the car sports some modern day technologies such as an iPad on the dashboard serving as an avionics system as well as the ability to keep a track of GPS coordinates. This US-based modification team has also got the car street registered and this is definitely going to turn many more than just a few heads.
Check out the video of the world's only turbine powered Batmobile replica below.
