This Batmobile is powered by a turbine

  • The very talented Casey Putsch has built what appears to be the only turbine-powered Batmobile on the planet. 

    Unfortunately, there is no Catwoman stretched out on the back seat in a tight leather outfit, but I guess the sexy car more than makes up for that.

    So check this out.

    Under the hood of the sleek and contoured Batmobile sits a Boeing turboshaft engine. 
Originally designed for naval drone helicopters, the engine’s power output is rated at a cool 385 - which is typical for a vehicle that weighs approximately 2,800 pounds.

    The inside of the Batmobile is probably just as trippy, with a satellite Internet-enabled Apple iPad acting as an "avionics system" and displaying GPS info. 

    Additional specs include:

    • 139” wheelbase.
    • 20 ft long.
    • 7 feet, 5 inches wide.
    • 2800 lbs without driver (est).
    • Steel tube frame/monocoque chassis.
    • Fully independent cockpit-adjustable pneumatic suspension.
    • Limited slip differential.
    • Disc brakes.
    • 4 speed sequential shift, semi-automatic transmission with reverse.
    • Digital avionics with i-Pad for app support, GPS, and satellite internet.
    • Infra-red and visible light spectrum reverse cameras with cockpit monitor.
    • Sliding canopy.
    • On board fire suppression system.
