Team Galag Brought A Batmobile To Gumball 3000 Rally [w/Video]

It’s not the prettiest thing you’ll see at this year’s Gumball 3000, but Team Galag’s Arkham Knight-based and Lamborghini-powered Batmobile sure as hell is one of the most unique rides to take part in the annual 3,000-mile celebrity motor rally.

This one-of-a-kind vehicle was built by Caresto, a Swedish manufacturer of concept and project cars, specifically for the 2016 edition of Gumball 3000. According to the company, it was designed after the Batmobile from the Arkham Knight game, but modified and manufactured “with drivability and full functionality in mind”.

Riding on a gargantuan 3,400mm (133.9 in) wheelbase that’s longer than what you get on the latest Mercedes-Maybach S-Class (3,365mm / 132.5 in) and with a massive 2,500mm (98.4 in) width, Caresto’s Batmobile is a sight to behold.

It’s also fascinating to hear as this behemoth is powered by a Lamborghini Gallardo-sourced 5.2-liter V10 pumping out 560 horses that’s connected to a paddle-shift gearbox and positioned behind the passenger compartment on a custom-made tubular frame. It rides on massive 26-inch wheels with ABS supported 8-pot Brembo calipers in front and 6-pot in rear connected to big brake discs providing stopping power.

The car’s body that’s riddled in intricate details is made completely out of carbon fiber, with the material extending inside where the driver and passenger get all the basic amenities such as a sound system and air-conditioning.

The 18th annual Gumball 3000 kicked off this past weekend with participants driving from Dublin, Ireland, to the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
