Tumbler - The Dark Knight Batmobile

Marca - Hot Wheels
Escala - 1:18
The Batmobile is the automobile of DC Comics superhero Batman. The car has evolved along with the character from comic books to television and films. Kept in the Batcave, which it accesses through a hidden entrance, the Batmobile is a gadget-laden vehicle used by Batman in his crime-fighting activities.
The Batmobile depicted in the Christopher Nolan directed films Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008) owes more to the tank-like vehicle from Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and has a much more 'workhorse' appearance than the sleek automobiles seen in previous incarnations. The vehicle does not have a front axle, a design that was influenced by the spinners featured in Director Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. The film's production designer described the machine as a cross between a Lamborghini  and a Tank  on the Batman Begins special features DVD.
In the 2005 movie, Bruce Wayne modifies a prototype military vehicle called "the Tumbler" that was designed as a bridging vehicle for the military. In the Nolan films the vehicle is never referred to as the "Batmobile". Six vehicles were built for the production of the film. Two full-sized, driving versions were used in exterior shots. One full-sized model with hydraulic enhancements was used in jump sequences. One full-sized, functional version carried propane tanks to fuel the rocket blast out of the rear nozzle. A radio-controlled, 1/3-scale electric model also performed stunts in the film.

  1. Pfff, muito bom, muito bom mesmo. Parabens, esta miniatura está com muito nivel.

  2. Every Batman series has been made more interesting with the help of the Batmobile. These vehicles just had such big roles to play in the respective movies they appeared in. For example, the Thumper in the movie Dark Knight appeared in some pretty epic scenes, including that breathtaking chase scene with the Joker! If Batmobiles were to be mass produced, I personally think these will be a big hit not only among car lovers, but also among die-hard Batman fans. Just think about it: the possibility of you driving a Batmobile! Pretty cool, right?
