Batman Tumbler golf cart found on eBay, costs US$17,500

The Dark Knight wannabes would love to take a ride in this miniature Batmobile, grunt "I'm Batman", and strike little fear into the hearts of The Joker and other villains

You probably won’t hear or see The Dark Knight showing it, but Bruce Wayne will be pleased with this miniature homage to the monstrous beast in his crime-fighting arsenal.

Made from an EZ-Go Golf-Cart, the miniature Batman Tumbler was stripped down to its skeletal frame and fitted with sheet metal and a sculpted, molded cowl, turning it into the menancing tank-like vehicle from Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. 

It's no slouch either - the mini Batman Tumbler goes up to 61km/h, comes complete with smaller versions of its bigger sibling’s Super Swamper tyres, and even has the Dark Knight’s seal of approval on its sports steering wheel. Other useful features include a Secret Kill switch as an anti-theft device, and four cup holders: one each for Alfred, Robin, Batgirl and the Caped Crusader.

Since then, the vehicle has made its rounds in a studio lot, though it spends 3/4 of its time indoors and attracting attention. While it costs US$30,000 (S$37,641) to build, the used Tumbler was sold for US$17,500 (S$21,957) as its creator had to clear his vault to develop more products.

Pity that it’s already sold, because we really wanted to throw our hard-earned cash at it and make an impression at our next Halloween party. Looks like it’s back to the usual - putting on a Batsuit, keeping a straight face, and grunting “I’m Batman” in front of the mirror.
