Even if you're not really into cars, everyone has a dream vehicle. If it's not the standard answer like "classic Mustang" or "Bugatti Veyron," then maybe it's, say, the Batmobile, or a car that flies.
Of course, the problem with getting too fanciful with your automotive dreams is that the really crazy stuff would never be street legal. Or would it? After all, at this moment you can buy ...
A Goddamn Batmobile With Working Turbine Engine
Oh, hell yes.
The good people at Putsch Racing hereby bring you this perfectly functional, street legal replica of the 1989 Tim Burton movie version of the Batmobile.
As roughly 120 percent of Cracked readers are dedicated Batman fans, chances are you're looking at the epitome of every automotive fantasy you've ever had. And it's easy to understand why -- having the Batmobile as your personal ride would improve your life in every conceivable way. Messed up parallel parking and scratched another car? Who would raise hell at the guy who drives the Batmobile? Late for work? "I'm sorry, I had a hard time finding a parking space for my Batmobile." Get charged with a crime? Pointing at your Batmobile grants you an instant pardon.
"Sir, we're willing to turn a blind eye to all that smack you've been smuggling in exchange for one five-minute ride."
And the people at Putsch didn't set out to make just any old movie replica, either. They actually went as far as building it with an actual turbine-powered engine, a feat that, incidentally, even the "actual" movie Batmobile didn't really have. Powered by a military-grade Boeing turbine engine taken from a drone helicopter, the Batmobile can reach speeds of up to 180 mph, and could probably be much faster if it wasn't for the fact that the cool design creates a lot of drag and makes it a bitch to handle at high speeds.
Wait, they stole an engine from one of the Joker's rides? Oh, SNAP!
The creator of this masterpiece, Batman admirer and possible superhero gadgeteer Casey Putsch, took to his work with admirable dedication. He never actually knew much about turbine engines before the project -- he learned how to rebuild the turbine engine from scratch, all in order to achieve maximum levels of Batmanism. Mission accomplished, Casey. Mission accomplished.
Now, if you'd ever need to go undercover while still packing the same horsepower, you could go for the ...
