Batman Hot Wheels

This Remote-Controlled Batmobile is an Adult Collector’s Wet Dream

Whether it be weapons or his iconic whip, the playboy billionaire turned Batman superhero is known for his love of toys. And now fans of the Dark Knight can add to their own collection.  To celebrate the upcoming release of Matt Reeves’ The Batman, DC Comics and Mattel Creations have joined forces to create a remote-controlled Hot Wheels Batmobile based on the latest iteration’s design.

The 1:10 scale model has been fully recreated to look exactly like the latest muscled up version of the Batmobile. Standing at 5.3 inches tall, 19.5 inches long, and 9.6 inches deep, this miniature machine takes three hours to charge and can last roughly 25 minutes. Hitting a top speed of 25 km/h, the vehicle includes rear-wheel drive with working suspension and utilises a pistol grip/wheel steering controller for “maximum precision” driving.

No stone has been left unturned with this project, equipped with all the gadgets and extras you’d expect from a Bruce Wayne vehicle. The paint job has been purposefully battled damaged and includes dirt marks to accurately represent the cars desired aesthetic. Remarkable colour-changing LEDs feature throughout its black body to create an authentic rear jet glow, from the whites headlights to the yellow glow under the hood and the red glare near the engine. Additionally, water vapour shoots out the back as you accelerate, with a six-inch figure of Bruce Warne sitting in the driver’s seat, assembled to look like he’s shifting gears and moving the steering wheel.

The Batmobile doubles as a high-end collector’s item if you’re too scared to get behind the wheel. The product comes packaged with its own decked out display station that includes light-up monitors and its very own bat signal.

While you won’t need Bruce Wayne’s bank account to purchase Mattel’s Hot Wheels Batmobile, this creation isn’t cheap, setting customers back USD$500.00 (AU$666.00). However, if you appreciate fine detail, precision performance and excellent style, it’s a small price to pay.
