The Batmobile has taken on many incarnations over the years — but the craziest is, by far, the "Tumbler," which was used in the "Dark Knight" trilogy — "Batman Begins" (2005), "The Dark Knight" (2008) and "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012). The Tumbler doesn’t look like anything else on the road — but now you can have your own, as there’s a replica listed for sale on Autotrader.
This replica is offered for sale by a private seller in Orlando, and it’s listed as a 2018 Lamborghini Aventador — a vehicle that gets a lot of attention. Except this thing would get far more attention, as it truly looks identical to the insane, bizarrely designed vehicle from the movies.
Since this vehicle is for sale in Florida, where just about anything can get titled and registered, it also comes as another perk: It’s actually legally registered. It’s titled, hilariously, as a 1968 Ford Mustang, and the ad description says it uses the engine from a 1969 Corvette. And here’s the best part: It may actually be street legal, as the description says "it comes with LED headlights, brake lights, turn signals and floodlights, all of which are DOT approved."
Although its asking price — a massive $675,000 — may seem like a lot, I’ve seen other replica Tumbler models for sale with similar asking prices, if not higher prices. And according to the ad description, this may be better than some of the other Tumbler models out there, as it’s "the only Tumbler replica" that allows the driver to open the roof, which can also be activated via key fob.
Other interesting items: Although there are no interior photos shown, the description says the interior includes three screens connected to different cameras, presumably created for improved visibility. "Also illuminated in the car’s appearance," the ad says ominously, "is the live pyrotechnic setup … which provides a variable-length flame." Oh, boy.
This is certainly one of the craziest cars I’ve ever seen listed for sale on Autotrader — and now it can be yours. Be careful of the flame. Find a Lamborghini Aventador for sale
