Batpod Up Close


Posted July 22, 2008 - By TylerColfax

The Batpod was on display at The Arclight Theatre in Hollywood yesterday. Luckily, we were there to snap some photos of the pod up close. It really exists and apparently its really hard to drive. The guy standing guard told us it's a 250cc 2-stroke engine. All we know is that the fastest Mario Kart setting was 150cc and those things hauled ass so you know this pod is for real.

More pictures upon the jump.


Lifted from the Wired site:

After the Batmobile (aka the Tumbler) is destroyed, Batman is forced to continue his pursuit of the Joker on this machine-gunning, shoulder-navigated, gimbals-sporting two-wheeler. This is a vehicle made for multitasking, allowing Batman to fire its guns, steer hands-free and maneuver hard without much risk of a wipeout. Says [production designer Nathan] Crowley, "If you go over on its side, it keeps you upright."
Real-World Counterpart: Dodge Tomahawk
The Bat-Pod most closely resembles the V-10, 500-horsepower Dodge Tomahawk concept vehicle. But designwise, Crowley says, the 'Pod draws most of its inspiration from the general design of the Tumbler itself. Just compare the front tires on the two vehicles: They're the same. "We didn't want it to be anything more than raw function, and that's why it looks like it does," says Crowley.
