BATMAN MOTOR CARS
THE BATMOBILE FROM THE MOVIE BATMAN AND ROBIN 
 
The Batmobile built for and used in the 1966–1968 live action television show Batman and its film adaptation was a customized vehicle that originated as a one-off 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, originally created by William M. Schmidt and his design team at the Lincoln Styling Department.

In late 1965 20th Century Fox Television and William Dozier's Greenway Productions contracted renowned Hollywood car customizer Dean Jeffries to design and build a "Batmobile" for their upcoming Batman TV series. He started customizing a 1959 Cadillac, but when the studio wanted the program on the air in January 1966, and therefore filming sooner than he could provide the car, Jeffries was paid off, and the project went to George Barris. Barris was trying to get Hollywood's attention with the Futura, but aside from
"It Started With a Kiss" in 1959, the Futura had been languishing in his Hollywood shop for several years.

With only three weeks to finish the Batmobile (although in recent years Jeffries says that his car was dropped because he was told it was needed in "a week and a half", he was quoted in 1988 as saying "three weeks" as well), Barris decided that, rather than building a car from scratch, it would be relatively easy to transform the distinctive Futura into the famous crime-fighting vehicle. Design work was conducted by Herb Grasse, working as an associate designer for Barris.

 



As the Batman films were handed over to director Joel Schumacher from Tim Burton, the design for the Batmobile updated. Decorative lighting was added to the vehicle's rims, sides and front edge, and the wing-shaped fins reached further into the air. New abilities included a grappling hook allowing the Batmobile to drive up walls, as well as the speed to perform large jumps from surface to surface during chases across Gotham City's elevated freeways and gigantic statues.

  




THE BATMOBILE FROM THE MOVIE THE DARK KNIGHT
 
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 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; Bruce Wayne drove a gray Lamborghini Murcielago in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
