Man Builds TURBINE-POWERED Batmobile

batmobile-lost-a-wheel.jpg

Casey Putsch built a Batmobile powered by a turbine engine from a naval helicopter (allegedly the only tubine-powered Batmobile to date so I don't know what this is) because he's a firm believer IN GOING BIG OR NOT GOING AT ALL. Hey, I'm with you bro. *finishing off second 20-piece nuggets of the day*

Under the long hood of Putsch's Batmobile sits a Boeing turboshaft engine plucked from a naval drone helicopter. The power output is rated at 385 horses, which is good for a vehicle that weighs around 2,800 pounds.


Besides the engine upgrade, this Batmobile has an interior that would make Bruce Wayne nod approvingly. That's all you can hope for really, since it's impossible to make Mr. Wayne jealous. Putsch strapped an Apple iPad into the center stack of his super(hero)car, which then acts as his avionics system and also supplies GPS information

Now that's what a call a Batgina mobile. Get it? Because I'm sure dude gets more Catwoman Ladycat with that thing than you could with a can of Fancy Feast. Which, if cooked just right, can be used to trick a roommate into eating it. You're a real dick Derek, you know that?

Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a worthwhile video of the car being driven (it sounds exactly how you think).

Thanks to Joseph B., The Doctor, Chris The Man and Greg, who agree a car without an engine meant for an aircraft is just a piece of shit with wheels.
