The new Batmobile unveiled and it’s awesome looking [Video]

It seems that with every new Batman movie we get to also have a brand new Batmobile to drool over, and for the more hardy – a new DYI project.

Well, the final of Chris Nolan’s Batman movies is no different as the next version of the Batmobile, as designed by Gordon Murray, has been unveiled as part of the Batman Live World Arena Tour.

The designer drew on his experience with the McLaren F1 for his new concept car, which includes a healthy dose of imagineering: there’s a carbon-fiber body that “breathes,” as well as LED-lit “virtual wheels.” We’re not sure how carbon fiber breathes or what virtual wheels are, but as Murray explains in the video below, they’re based on Formula One materials as he imagines them 15-20 years from now. He also envisions a greener Dark Knight, whose ride runs on hydrogen fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries — no longer will the caped crusader suffer a guilty conscience due to his excessive carbon dioxide emissions.

    Not The Dark Knight Rises Batmobile. This is for Batman Live Tour in London. Nolan would never use a p.o.s. Like this.
