Casey Putsch, Auto God, has built himself an replica of the Batmobile from Tim Burtons Batman. This thing looks amazing! Fuse brought this to our attention. Here is an excerpt from Putsch’s web site. Check out the pics and let us know what you think!
Casey Putsch (29) is an aspiring racing driver with a background in the fine arts. Putsch graduated from The Ohio State University in 2005. Unable to move up in racing due to being self funded and generally misunderstood as being “merely an artist”, Putsch conquered the challenge to make fiction reality by mentally engineering and building the worlds only real Batmobile in only 5 months utilizing military surplus and car racing parts. Putsch says “If you believe in my business, I can build you almost anything and more importantly if you believe in me as a driver, I’m more than happy to take your name all the way to Indy and bring you home a 500 win”.
The car is a replica of the vehicle from the classic 1989 Batman movie that was directed by Tim Burton starring Michael Keaton as Batman. It is registered and insured for the street and features a military spec Boeing turbine engine that was used in a drone helicopter by the Navy to drop torpedoes on enemy submarines. Putsch taught himself about turbine engines and successfully rebuilt this surplus engine by himself. The engine powers the rear wheels via a semi automatic transmission and is driven like any other conventional production car. The car’s engineering and construction is fully racing derived and can be considered the most extreme exotic car on the planet.
The Batmobile recently debuted at the very prestigious Ault Park Concours d’Elegance in Cincinnati, Ohio on June 12th
