UPDATE: This picture was actually shot when Batman Begins was released -- in 2005. So don't expect to see the Stig doing his thing in the Tumbler anytime soon. Check out the

We don't have any details on when this happened or if when Top Gear will air the man in white piloting Batman's meanest machine. But with the Tumbler making its recent appearance at the British GP with Toyota, was there any doubt that something like this was going to go down? We're taking bets about what kind of time the Tumbler is going to set around the TG test track. Check out the current Power Lap times and make your own predictions in the comments below.

      Everyone knows the Stig is Bruce Wayne AND Clark Kent.

        As for a lap time prediction, I'll bet slow, somewhere at or around 2 minutes.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Indeed.

      Hello!

      These images are taken from my Flickr account and the site owners have used them without either a credit or a link back.

      I think that’s pretty rude, and I look forward to their apology. In the meantime, they should feel free to add a link to the pages you got the images from, remove them from the site, or link the thumbs back to my Flickr pages.

      Other than that, I'm a big fan of the weblogs network, so hai there!

      I remember from the DVD, that the tumbler has a high performance Chevy 350 crate motor and was built as high speed stunt car rather than a camera prop. They had footage of high speed 360's and the like so I wouldn't be surprised if the car actually makes a decent time around the track.

        FYI- "Four complete, drivable cars were built: two regular "driving" cars, one "flap" car with working hydraulics for close-up shots, and one "jet" car with a fully funcional propane-fueled exhaust. The cars used carbon fiber body panels, and cost approximately $250,000 each to build. The interiors of all of these cars were sparse, with only enough to keep the stunt drivers safe and well-informed: this included side- and rear-view cameras in addition to the standard array of gauges. A fifth car was built as an "arrival" car. This one had a full interior and working roof to allow for shots that required actors to get into or out of the car. This was driven by a small electric motor, since it was only required to do limited low-speed travel. Two more "fake" Tumblers were built. One was a complete and detailed interior set, which allowed the actors and camera crew to fit "inside" the car. Also, a 1/5 scale Tumbler was built for certain jump scenes, such as the chase sequence across Gotham's rooftops."

      This was disapointing. The video footage I saw on youtube sucked.

      "The Stig climbs aboard Batman's Tumbler, good things on the way"

      The Stig doesn't climb aboard the Tumbler, the Tumbler gets 'Stigged'.

      What are the specs on this thing again? Bueller?
        • 6 Years Ago
        All I know is that its a Chevy small block powering it, the LS2 if I remember correctly.

      i thought i herd they filmed the movie in chicago, why would it be filmed over there?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Some of the Batman Begins was filemed in Chicago. The production company is British and most of the actors are British. It is being distributed through American WB but everything else is pretty British. It is a British interpritation of the American legend. The film is set in Gotham which is a fictitious American city but it has a Anglo feel to it. This is British revenge for Hollywood making Austin Powers and casting Renee scrunchyface as the fat girl in Bridgett Jones Diary.

        Even Burton filmed parts of the original Batman (89) in Britain.
