You could pick yourself up a Batmobile for as little as £73,000
Every child wants their parent to be a superhero these days – whether it’s Superman, Wonder Woman or Batman. But whilst some areas of superhero life are unattainable to us mere mortals, like the aforementioned heroes parents feel an overwhelming need to protect those close to them, especially their children, from the bad things in life.
Whilst parents may not be out and about fighting bad guys like on the big screen; they’re busy being superhuman as they wipe their children’s faces, try to dress them as they run off and then there’s also those busy Saturdays trying to get them to endless birthday parties – but most children aren’t taken in the Batmobile! Cue the children’s disappointment and tears.
So, what if you wanted to take them to that party in the Batmobile? Well, the chances of finding one would be pretty remote. But if you are wishing to impress your children into thinking you are the next Diana Prince or Bruce Wayne, then this list has the top 5 Batmobile lookalikes – and you could pick one of them up for as little as… £73,000! Bargain…
From a child’s perspective!
1. Lamborghini Sesto Elemento – From £2.3 million
Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento is probably the top choice for the Batman of the 21st century. The car is incredibly stylish and is very Batmobile looking in its design. There were only 20 of these super machines built for the modern day Batman powered with a 5.2-liter V10 engine, supplying 570 horsepower. This 6 speed paddle shift machine will hit an astonishing 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds with a top speed of 210mph. You’d see Batman coming in one of these, that’s for sure.
2. BMW i8 – From £73,000
The BMW i8 is high on the list as a potential Batmobile. What’s there not to like? With a sheer black paint job, and the stand-out blue highlights, this car attracts the eye every time. Loaded with new technology, this sleek machine would glide through the city at 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds with a top speed of 155mph.
3. Aston Martin CC100 Speedster – From £500,000
Only two of these cars were ever built by Aston Martin based on inspiration from the DBR1 race car of the 1950s. With such a stylish and eye-catching look, Batman would appreciate the 6.0-liter V12 engine, and ability to hit a top speed of 180 miles per hour as he tries to keep up with his enemies. With acceleration of 0-60mph in just over 4.0 seconds there’s no chasing this half a million pound supercar.
4. Nissan BladeGlider (Not in production)
The Nissan BladeGlider, which is an apt name for a modern Batmobile, is a concept from Nissan which has never made it to the production line. Initial performance tests revealed a top speed in excess of 115mph and a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds with a 268bhp.
Nissan officially says it has no production plans for the BladeGlider, but the firm is known to want an electric sports car in its future expanded line-up of electric cars, and the advanced level of engineering that has gone into the BladeGlider hints that it could be a candidate to join the range in the future.
5. Maybach Exelero (from £8,000,000)
Any potential Batman would need a huge cheque book to buy this car, as it’s currently owned by a rapper called ‘Birdman’ who was rumoured to have bought the one-off car for 8 million USD. The car sports a twin-turbo V12 engine with a top speed of 218 miles per hour and a 700hp, meaning this high performance sports car has the necessary design and power to be the Batmobile..
That’s it for our round up of superhero supercars, although there are definitely more, including the Vaydor, R8 and the KTM X-bow. What’s your favourite of these? Have a suggestion for us to add? Let us know in the comments.
