A Toyota MR2 Turned Batmobile
January 23rd, 2019
Normally, a used 2002 Toyota MR2 is worth about $8,000, but this one will cost you around $150,000. It's in England and was built by a movie car hire company called Character Cars. And even though it’s much smaller than the real deal Batmobile, it's pretty cool.
Aside from the obvious appearance change, it's been heavily modified with new suspensions and a dually rear end that uses the wheels and tires from a military truck. The engine has also been swapped for a tuned 2.0-liter motor with 400 hp and it’s equipped with a faux-flame-throwing exhaust. Since the windshield is blacked out, front and rear cameras with infrared capability and monitors have been installed to help you out. It also road lighting, which it doesn’t need because it’s not street legal as-is, although it is titled.
The car will is going to auction at the Historics Auctioneers event on March 2 at the Ascot Racecourse.
