Based on the Batman’s Speedwagon from the “The Lego Batman Movie,” the 17-foot long Lego Batmobile from Chevrolet is equipped with a striking look to fear the bad guys, and stud shooters ideal for Batman to make his rounds of Gotham City in.

According to Chevrolet, the Lego Batmobile will be available in 12 different shades of black. In addition, it will feature the latest cabin connectivity such as hands-free calling, with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection.

Lego Batmobile features

The supercharged V8 from the Corvette Z06 satisfies every petrol-head’s custom inquiry and delivers enough muscle power to go after villains such as Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, the Riddle, Poison Ivy and the Joker.

Chevrolet even designed an entire website solely for the purpose of the life-sized Lego Batmobile that includes all the fascinating specs you’d find on a real car.

Built on an aluminum square tube platform, the Lego Batmobile is made more than 340,000 Lego bricks, and weighs 1,695.5 pounds. Every single tire tips the scale at a touch over 100 pounds. It took 222 hours to design the Batmobile whereas the assembly saw the Lego Master Builders team needing 1,833 hours to complete at their shop in Enfield, Connecticut.

The fictitious Lego Batmobile details list the car as using rocket fuel, having the ability to tow up to 120,000 pounds, and including Wi-Fi connectivity, driver-centric bulletproof glass and high-tensile, projectile-proof armored side panels.

Final thoughts

Will it go on sale? Chevy did not commit to any concrete answer, however, it’s a great “what-if” look at what might actually be a pretty cool car for Lego fanatics.

If you can’t make it to the Detroit Auto Show to see the Lego Batmobile in person, do not worry!

“The Lego Batman Movie” hits theaters on February 10th.
