the Burton Batmobile...

When Tim Burton took a shot at the Batman franchise, he needed to create a whole new car from scratch to be a dark nemesis against the baroque of the Gotham city he imagined. This is what it became... Bearing some "must have" from previous models, like the reactor, the wings, ... it had a much sober, more industrialized design.
