Not many people can say they’ve seen a real-life version of the Batmobile from the hugely popular video game, Arkham Knight (we’re not kidding about popular; it’s sold 5 million copies), let alone say they’ve ridden in one, or had one personally constructed for them. But a lucky guy named Francis can claim all three titles, so it’s a great time to be him right now.
Francis won a Super Gamer Builds Contest (it’s a show that runs on Break’s AWE Me YouTube account), where a group of talented artists and builders turned a two-seater go-kart into a Batmobile! Yeah, it might be a fraction of the size and lack some firepower, but this thing actually drives, and it looks slick as hell.
Check out the video to see how the Batmobile was built, and watch our man Francis take it for a spin.
The Batmobile took seven weeks to build, and its shell is made of fiberglass. Numerous custom components went into the construction, making the detail incredibly intricate. You might have guessed that the go-kart isn’t exactly street legal (it’s a go-kart), but that’s of little importance. Francis has his very own Batmobile to show off to…everybody who he comes into contact with, from now until the end of time.
Calling all Arkham Knight fans: what do you think of this Batmobile go-kart? Would you like to be seen in one of these bad boys? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
