1989 Batmobile | 2018 Central Florida Auto Show

This is an ’89 Batmobile that’s owned by the Orlando Auto Museum, and I saw it at the 2018 Central Florida Auto Show. I don’t know if this is a replica or an actual car used in the 1989 Batman film. In the movie, the car is said to have a jet turbine engine that produces 1,750 pound-feet of torque. In the movie, the car does 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 329 mph. The actual car used in the movie doesn’t actually that much power nor is it that fast, but it’s certainly an interesting piece of movie history.
