Custom Carmaker Creates Real-Life, Badass Batmobile (Video)
Holy smokes, Batman, this thing is crazy cool.
Swedish custom carmaker Caresto has manufactured a real-life Batmobile. Led by founder Leif Tufvesson, the Caresto team took design cues from the Batmobile in the popular Batman: Arkham Knight video game.
Even if you're not a comic nerd or a gear head (I'm both, sadly, proudly ...), you have to see this to believe it. Check out this video from Caresto:

While Caresto typically builds its custom cars to customer specifications, it built this vehicle -- dubbed The TGX -- to take part in the Gumball 3000, a European car rally.
This thing is more than a pretty bucket of bolts. For the gear heads who are reading this, here some some fun specs/details:
- 560hp V 10 engine
- Wheel base is more than 11 feet
- 26-inch wheels
- Fully independent front and rear suspensions
- Body is made from carbon fiber
And, boy can she move. See the car in action in the video at the top of the page, courtesy of car blog MrJWW.
