This original Batmobile-inspired vehicle has been dubbed the Flatmobile. It stands a whopping 19" tall and is allegedly the world's flattest car that isn't a go-kart.

This is a video of the Batpod inspired motorcycle some engineering genius managed to piece together in Vietnam. It's pretty damn impressive considering it looks like it was built entirely out of parts that had fallen off other cars. Granted it's not something I'd risk MY life... / Continue →
