A photo of the Batmobile covered with sand and dust has been published on the Reddit resource: the author claims that it was made on the territory of one of the warehouses in Dubai, while the car looks abandoned. Edition Autoevolution believes that the "Batmobile" may be one of the copies of the car, filmed in "The Dark Knight", and legal.
- In the comments to the photo, one can find statements that technically the Batmobile cannot be considered abandoned - it has an official owner who periodically even drives out on it, and the condition captured in the photo is due to lack of proper care.
- At the same time, the question whether this is really Tumbler from the set of Chris Nolan's film, where Christian Bale played the main role, remains open. According to one of the versions, it is really a cinema car, according to another, it is one of five official replicas released with the permission of the filmmakers and allowed on public roads.
One of these, according to the publication, was equipped with a 5.7-liter Chevrolet eight-cylinder engine, which developed about 500 hp, and was able to simulate jet exhaust.
- Replicas of all sorts of "Batmobiles" are regularly built by enthusiasts and appear on sale. For example, in March of this year at the Bonhams auction they were supposed to sell a seven-meter copy of the car that Batman drove in Tim Burton's films. The new "Batmobile", which will be driven by actor Robert Pattinson, is much more like a regular car than before.
