Batman 75th Anniversary Part2: Arkham Asylum Batmobile

What strikes me the most about this model is how original it is



Name: Batmobile (Arkham Asylum)
Debut series: 2011 First Editions

Produced year: 2011
Designed: -





Batman Arkham Asylum

The story behind:  The Batman Arkham Asylum machine is an engineer feat mind you, it took elements from the Batman (1989) Batmobile and the Batman Animated Series (1992-1998) making it a very unique and interesting machine. It is featured in the XBOX/PlayStation game Batman Arkham Asylum being in the first  levels (mostly playing part in story cinematics) having quite an interesting ending and coming back for the sequel Arkham City (via dlc). 






Raw power

The looks:  The Batmobile is a hybrid between these 2 models plus they added some hype adding the V8 motor without cover showing the raw power of this amazing beast. As per design most of the body is plastic leaving only the chassis and the motor being metal. The cockpit is has a blue hue which lets you peek inside Batman's Batmobile cockpit. What strikes me the most about this model is how original it is (as previously stated this model was inspired by) you can really appreciate the makers of Arkham Asylum to not only portrait Batman with a lot of dignity but also the surroundings of the character.
