Lego Batman's new Batmobile is powered by Chevrolet

Batman is now a Chevy guy with the world debut of the Lego Batmobile at the Detroit Auto Show. The latest cabin technology keeps the Dark Knight connected, while Chevy power under the hood combined with the jet thrusters out back should provide all the power necessary to chase down criminals in Gotham City.
