By Blogger on 23 Jun 2011

Gordon Murray Designs has revealed this modern recreation of the Batmobile, a futuristic take on the iconic comic-book car.

Special features include a ‘quiet mover’ at the front (a “breathable carbonfibre outer body skin” which reduces drag, increases the car’s speed and allows the Batmobile to “move silently about its business”) anti detection transmitters, and laser beams in the car’s nose.

The Batmobile is powered by hydrogen, which is stored in twin tanks in its right-hand-side flanks. A fuel cell stack is on the car’s left flank and this powers lithium-ion batteries.

Instead of standard alloys, the Batmobile sits on ‘virtual wheels’. According to the technical drawings, the wheel’s force-field generators “oppose gravity and lifts the Batmobile to a levitation position 40mm above the ground”.

Professor Gordon Murray, CEO and Technical Director of Gordon Murray Designs, and designer of the iconic McLaren F1 and numerous other successful racing cars, said, "We at are proud to have designed the Batmobile for the Batman Live show. We have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to apply advanced materials and concepts to create a truly unique take on one of the world’s most iconic vehicles.”

The car will feature in the Batman Live show, a high-velocity stunt production brought by the team behind the award-winning "Walking With Dinosaurs", which kicks off its tour in July in U.K.

Batman Live combines acrobatics, daredevil stunt work, illusions and cutting-edge design to bring the adventures of Batman and Robin to life on stage for the first time in the character's history.
