7Barn-find Batmobile is the first one ever built, three years before Barris

When we think of the original Batmobile, George Barris is the name that comes up almost as soon as Adam West, nevermind that there was a Batman television show nearly a decade before that famous pairing. It's time to rewrite the file, though, so that we think of Forrest Robinson and All-Star Dairy anytime the phrase "original Batmobile" comes up.

15Piano Guys seranade each generation of Batmobile [w/poll]

A new Batmobile is on the way for the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it blends the military styling of the one in the Dark Knight trilogy with some of the sleekness from the version in the '89 Tim Burton movie. With a new model imminent, it's a perfect time to honor three of the most famous shapes for the Caped Crusader's ride, and a group called The Piano Guys are doing just that in a new music video featuring a medley of Batman theme tunes played on a cello and piano.

26Complete set of Batmobile images snapped on streets of Detroit

Detroiters have been spotting the newest Batmobile from the upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for a few weeks now. The leaks were steady enough that director Zack Snyder even tweeted out a glossy (yet cropped) image of how the vehicle will actually appear in the movie.

18Zack Snyder tweets another glimpse of new Batmobile

There are plenty of movies flashing cool cars across the silver screen, but few can get enthusiasts as excited as a new Batmobile. From the Lincoln-based roadster in the original series to the Tim Burton-era jet-powered dragster and on to the Tumbler featured in the latest films, Batman's ride of choice has evolved tremendously over the years. And soon we'll have another on our hands.

15New Batmobile captured near Detroit set

Filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is underway in Detroit, with discreetly snapped pictures of stars Ben Affleck (Batman) and Henry Cavill (Superman) becoming increasingly common fixtures on the social media of Detroiters. Rather than get another snap of Affleck walking into the gym or restaurant, though, one Instagrammer has captured what are believed to be the first images of the Dark Knight's new ride.

2Batman caught astride Batcycle in Japan

Holy makeshift Batcycle, Batman. This rider in Japan deserves a round of applause and pat on the back for his dedication to an idea. We've seen people build more authentic looking recreations of the Batpod in the past but never with this much commitment to the whole look.

5Batman Tumbler team blames shoddy quality for missing out on Gumball 3000

Citizens of Europe, your roads are at the same time a little bit safer and a little bit more dangerous. That's because the Tumbler, a replica of Batman's crime-fighting ride in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, won't be taking part in the nonsense that is the Gumball 3000.

17Latest Batmobile shown ahead of 2015 Batman: Arkham Knight launch

Batman is getting yet another new Batmobile. We recently saw teases of director Zack Snyder's take on the iconic vehicle for the upcoming movie starring the Dark Knight and Superman. The movie isn't due to hit screens until 2016, so until then, we'll have to focus on the video game world as the Bat gets a new car to appear in Batman: Arkham Knight.

18Next Batmobile teased by Zack Snyder [UPDATE]

Update: After this post went live, Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder tweeted a glimpse of the front view of the coming Batmobile with Ben Affleck as Batman alongside. We've added the tweet below. Hat tip to BipDBo.

38Next Batmobile to be built by GM?

Batman is a superhero known primarily for his cool gadgets, and over the years his cars have deservingly received a lot of attention. On the big (and small) screen, the Batmobile has evolved with each new director of movies and television shows, and this trend will continue with the next Batman movie (in which the Dark Knight will be portrayed by Ben Affleck) expected in 2015.

12Inside the minds of people who own movie cars

People who own movie cars are a different breed. Judging from the two videos on theAFICIONAUTO, a trend seems to be forming among them: they're not interested in cars per se, but more specifically cars that double as movie props.

18Leno gets a crack at Batman's Tumbler

If anyone had the famous chin to play Batman, it would certainly be Jay Leno, but no, the car-loving comedian hasn't bumped Ben Affleck from his upcoming role as the Caped Crusader. Instead, Warner Bros. swung by for the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage to show off the modern interpretation of the Batmobile – known as the Tumbler.

32Holy crime-fighting Ford F-150, Batman!

What would Batman drive for his weekly trips to Home Depot for the bits and pieces needed to keep his lair deep below Wayne Manor in tip-top condition? Certainly not the Batmobile – there's no way a 4x8 sheet of plywood will fit between the wheel wells, not to mention the fact that jet turbine engines have an unfortunate tendency to set trailers on fire when towing...

16Vietnamese rider creates his own Batpod, forgets Batsuit riding gear

Some people are satisfied with collecting action figures and posters of their favorite superheros, but one Batman fan in Vietnam decided to take it a step further and built his own Batpod motorcycle.

13Batman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. car baby seats are kind of creepy, kind of cool

If you're looking for a different way to ferry your children about in the car safely, KidsEmbrace may have you covered. The company makes specialty car seats fashioned after DC Comics superhero Batman and NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Junior.

19eBay Find of the Day: The Batmobile before the first Batmobile

If you're still upset that you missed out on bringing home the $4.62 million 1966 Barris Batmobile, the internet may just have your redemption. Technically, the car created for the TV show wasn't the Caped Crusader's first ride. In the early '60s, All Star Dairies commissioned this machine to promote the company's Batman and Robin milk. The owner originally built the car between 1961 and 1963 using an Oldsmobile chassis (complete with a 350 V8) and a custom fiberglass body, and the dairy company

6R/C Lego Batman Tumbler inspires instant envy

We've seen a handful of clever Lego interpretations of the Tumbler from Batman, but this one takes the cake. Not only is it remote controlled, but it also packs in all of the features we love from the movie-going machine. The builder specifically engineered the front suspension and steering mechanism to work like the real deal, and the super-soft suspension setup means there's all kinds of body roll around corners. Out back, this Lego Tumbler works in a live axle set up and a spinning thruster l

37George Barris to sell original 1966 Batmobile at Barrett-Jackson [w/video]

Holy celebrity auction, Batman! The one and only original Batmobile, constructed by celebrity customizer George Barris, is slated to go up for auction at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ, on January 19, 2013.

33Batman-inspired Kia Optima concept headed for Gotham reveal

DC Entertainment is leading a charity campaign called "We Can Be Heroes" to raise awareness of hunger in The Horn of Africa. With help from artist Jim Lee and Rides magazine, Kia has joined the Justice League with a Batman-themed Optima SX apparently inspired by the Dark Knight's darkest nights.

16Batman interrupts Hyundai i30 video review

We weren't aware of the Toronto Batman before we saw this video, but apparently he gets around. Making a stop in London, he crashes a review of the Hyundai i30 by journalist Rory Reid and – being a rather high-strung Canadian Batman still upset about his parents being dead – starts off by issuing an uncomplimentary single-word verdict on every one of the i30's features.

50Chrysler sponsors The Dark Knight Rises, goes Imported From Gotham City

Chrysler and Warner Brothers have partnered up on a new ad for the 300S and The Dark Knight Rises. The spot shows a special concept version of the big sedan being stitched together in Bruce Wayne's underground lab to music borrowed from the film.
