We have seen on previous occasions how some cars that have been part of the filming of a certain movie end up changing ownership for a large sum, the most recent case being the Chevrolet Corvette from ‘Fast Five’. However, what one never expects is that the end of these vehicles will be so sad as to end up abandoned in an old warehouse in Dubai, something that has happened with Batman’s Tumbler.
Forgotten in a warehouse
For many fans of the famous DC character, the cinematic universe reached its peak with the Christopher Nolan trilogy. Everything about the three films, from the casting to the stories and the way they were told, and the vehicles used, was perfect for these fans who will now take their heads to discover that the iconic Batmobile rests in the open without let no one remember him.
The Tumbler is the Batman car embodied by Christian Bale, a peculiar six-wheeled vehicle that could be used to ram targets, with a great technological load and tactical equipment, as well as being able to self-destruct by expelling the Dark Knight in the Batpod. Finding this car on the street is practically impossible, but in Burbank, California, some pedestrians had this opportunity when Jay Leno came out for a natural spin at the controls of this rarity back in 2013.
According to Reddit user u / gautamailani92, the Tumbler is now outside a warehouse in Al Quoz, Dubai, gathering dust and looking run down from the passage of time. The vehicle appears to be abandoned, but some users point out that it is technically not, as it is actually a very neglected car. Every now and then someone takes it out for a spin, although they never seem to bother to wash it. We don’t know if this is the original Tumbler from the movies or a replica, although the comments point in the former direction.
More than 500 hp and six wheels
In fact, five exact replicas were produced and sold in 2014 for a million dollars each, and all were legal to circulate on public roads. A year later, one of them reached a Dubai dealership, displaying a 5.7-liter V8 engine inherited from a Chevrolet Corvette that produced more than 500 hp and could reach top speeds of 250 km / h. This unique vehicle sat on four huge 44-inch Swamper tires, just like the model in the movies.
