The Dark Night has gone green, at least his European cousin has.
Created by noted Formula One racing car designer, Gordon Murray, the tandem two-seater looks more like something Bruce Wayne would use to compete at Le Mans rather than fight crime.
As an electric car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, the Caped Crusader’s new ride is emissions free, aside from an afterburner that burns some of that hydrogen, we assume, when he needs to make a theatrical entrance.
Instead of wheels, the car floats over the ground on a high-energy field, also generated by the fuel cell – conceptually, at least. You can be sure you’ll find four round disks under those aerodynamic pods.
It is also outfitted with grappling hooks, radar jammer and lasers, along with a carbon fiber skin that breathes – perhaps to eliminate the need for an energy-sapping air conditioning system.
Interested in taking it for a spin? Sorry, the car recognizes Batman’s energy signature and will only work if he’s at the controls, so you’ll have to audition for the role.
