Bring the party

This model also comes equipped to shine a light on Gotham's shadowy underworld, and can double as a pretty epic party on wheels.

Who needs gullwings?

For some reason, superheroes prefer funky doors on their vehicles, but this Batmobile comes with an electronic ingress and egress design that's more modern, subtle, and functional.

Smokescreen on the go

If you find the included flame thrower a bit melodramatic, the functioning smoke release mechanism on this Batmobile might be more your style. Leave those aggro baddies in a cloud of confusion while you sneak off to your secret lair for more ammo. (May not be legal in cities hosting the Olympics.)
