The term "Batmobile" is one that gets thrown around a lot in automotive circles. Pretty much anything black and sinister is described as the Dark Knight's new ride. But aside from the handful of custom vehicles made for the various TV shows and movie installments over the years – ranging from campy to badass – few have been truly worthy of the name. Enter the Wiesmann MF5 Black Bat.

Starting with the top-of-the-line V10-powered MF5 retro roadster, customizers SchwabenFolia and Dahler have produced the closest thing to a genuine Batmobile this side of the Tumbler... particularly when photographed against the backdrop of a rather Wayne Manor-esque gothic mansion. They've wrapped it in matte black, blacked out the chrome and given it a set of noir BBS 20-inch alloys with polished rims.

There's even a little Batman logo on the back, but the party piece is the ECU reflash and new exhaust that have brought output up from the 507 horsepower featured in the old BMW M5 and M6 to a nice, round 600. Six-piston Brembo calipers keep the power in check, but with that much bat-juice under hood, we wouldn't expect to see this beast sitting still for long – so you'd better check it out in the high-res image gallery if you want to catch a glimpse.

      1. since 10/2010 the MF5 Roadster is powered by a 4.4l V8 twinturbo (Wiesmann droped the V10 as BMW stoped producing it!) 2. the pictures are infront of Classicism architecture not gothic 3. the wheels are standart wheels on the MF5

        Dear Georg, Please do not call attention to the fact that the original posters look at a press release for 10 seconds and post the most obvious bright spots, regardless of whether or not they are true. Please do not expect postings to contain educated comments about any subject that is not car related - or that is car-related and technical. Technical means anything about a car not related to appearances. Occasionally appearances too. Appropriate responses on Autoblog are: A: holy crap! I'mma buy 1 as soon as my parentz gives me the money B: this car iz wack. My (dad's) [car] kicks its azz. C: Your [car of choice] sucks Intelligent and/or insightful comments are not allowed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please fall into line next time.

      This is how you make niche sports cars. If it hadn't been for idiots willing to go for second rate design, third rate craftsmanship and abysmal reliability, British cottage car industry, or what remains of it, would be long dead. And the world would have been a better place. But alas, for every great niche car, a poor one has to be made. For every Wiesmann, one Bristol. For every Donkervoort, one Morgan.... Preservation of energy is absolute.
