The fictional car driven by the superhero Batman. Housed in the Batcave, which it accesses through a hidden entrance, the Batmobile is both a heavily armored tactical assault vehicle and a personalized custom-built pursuit and capture vehicle that is used by Batman in his fight against crime.

Batman Returns 1992

Tim Burton’s live-action film Batman 1989 and Batman Returns 1992 presented a different version of the Batmobile, which reflected those films’ Art Deco version of Gotham City. The car was designed by conceptual illustrator Julian Caldow who also designed the Batwing. The body of the car was sculpted by Keith Short in collaboration with Eddie Butler. One of the two screen-used Batmobiles is now housed at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
