Hot Wheels has unveiled its newest remote-control car, a 50cm-long scale replica of the newest Batmobile – aimed squarely at adult collectors.
Officially dubbed ‘The Batman The Ultimate Batmobile’, it’s described on the Mattel Creations website as “what happened when our design team goes bat$#!+ insane on a project”.
The muscle car-inspired Batmobile is driven by Robert Pattinson’s caped crusader in 2022’s The Batman – a dark and gritty version of the superhero’s early days.
The battery-powered Hot Wheels version features an accurate rear-wheel-drive layout and functional street suspension. There’s a complement of LED lights front and rear, including flame effects for the rocket-boosted twin-turbo V8, while a water mist effect helps recreate Gotham City’s dark atmosphere.A fleshed-out interior includes light-up gauges, wiring and two detailed seats. Perhaps most impressive is the addition of a six-inch Batman figurine, which moves with the steering wheel and shifter based on driver input.
“Less toy and more detailed movie prop” – each model is packaged with a Bat Cave hoist to display the car, itself featuring LED-lit screens and a Bat-Signal projector.
According to Mattel Creations, The Ultimate Batmobile has a top speed of between 20 and 24km/h, with a runtime of 20-25 minutes per charge.
