1966 Batmobile

Batman uses a number of weapons in his fight against crime but the most powerful is the Batmobile.

Over the years the Batmobile has had several designs but the most recognizable is the classic 1966 Batmobile. The Batmobile is constructed of a number of things to make it indestructible. Its ceramic bulletproof coating helps with stand any semi-automatic weapon, handgun, and even armor piercing bullets. Not to mention the puncture proof tires.

The Batmobile has the number of gadgets to help fight crime such as the front nose mounted aluminum chain slicer, lasers, monitors, a on board computer, police beacon, and even an on board telephone better known as the "BATPHONE".

Some other features of the Batmobile are its 1500 HP gas turbine engine. The engine is ran on 97% octane aircraft fuel. This makes the Batmobile capable of going from 0 to 90 mph in 5.2 seconds.

In addition it also has separate turbine afterburners which can give the Batmobile a boost to make the vehicle hit speeds well over 300 miles per hour. Rear portals emit smoke screens and oil slicks that help protect Batman from being followed too closely. The dashboard has a number of aircraft style component's such as a police shortwave, a hidden mechanism that opens the door to the Batcave. This allows Batman to enter the Batcave in seconds and a voice controlled Batmobile relay unit.

However, the coolest feature is the two rear-mounted 10-foot parachutes these make the Batmobile capable of making a quick 180" turn, better known as the BAT TURN. These are just a few of the Batmobile's crime-fighting powers. Batman can't reveal all his crime fighting secrets.
