With the home release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Xcentrick Autosports thought that they would weigh in on the top seven Batmobiles in the film franchise’s history. This does not include any from the animated series or anything that is not a physical car.
7. The Batmobile from 1943
Though simply designed, the long and streamlined shape of the Batmobile from the 1943 television series is very reminiscent of the Batmobiles to come.
6. The Very First Batmobile
Hitting the screens in 1941, this Batmobile is the beginning of all other Batmobiles. As connoisseurs of vintage cars, XKA loves this one because it’s red trim is so unique in a Batmobile and just so cool.
5. The New Batman Adventures Batmobile
Though not particularly extravagant, this model, which was used from 1997-1999, gives us the iconic Batmobile shape. Perhaps it lacks the intricacy of some of the other Batmobiles, but it’s very sleek and definitely bat-ish.
4. Tim Burton’s Batmobile
A definite improvement, though it came earlier, is Tim Burton’s Batmobile from the 1989 movie Batman starring Michael Keaton. Whether you love Keaton’s performance or not, this Batmobile is one of the models that laid the groundwork for the Batmobiles to come in the later movies.
3.The Batmobile from Batman Forever
Val Kilmer’s performance aside, this 1995 movie provided us with a Batmobile that was intricate and interesting to look at. The ribbing across the front gives it an unusual and unique look that puts it at the top of our list.
2. The Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Though not the traditional silhouette of a Batmobile, this particarly Batmobile is one of the most high tech models so far. Though to some the movie was sub-par, the Batmobile from BVS is a very muscular, complex vehicle that suits a more jaded, more experienced Batman.
1. The Batmobile from the Dark Knight Trilogy
For Xcentrick Autosports, the predecessor of the newest Batmobile takes the cake for being the coolest Batmobile to date. It’s sleek, it’s powerful, and it’s just aggressive-looking enough that it would scare anyone in its path enough that they would move out of their way. Bale for Batman, Nolan for Batmobiles is the way to go.
