There's hardly iota of doubt that the Batman is one of the most loved superhero ever. And there are various reasons for it - firstly, he is just a simple human like us all with no superpowers and secondly he loves his automobiles. Yes, one of the main reasons why people loved him even more was his beloved Batmobile, which has evolved over the years and is the most tech laden cars in the world.

Over the years, many individuals have tried to copy the design and nuisances of the Batmobile and build themselves a replica of the monster. But none could come as close as did Team Galag from Saudi Arabia, who, last year, presented the replica of the Tumbler version of the Batmobile, used in his latest movie, and created an impact among the viewers.

The same Team Galag is ready with yet another version, this time the Arkham Knight game version of the Batmobile. Team Galag joined hands with Sweden based Caresto concept and prototype vehicle manufacturer to join the annual Gumball 3000 international celebrity motor rally. The 4800 km (3000 mile) rally will witness the fully functional Batmobile engineered by Leif  Tufvesson.

Named TGX, the Batmobile Arkham edition is built around a Lamborghini sourced engine. Custom made high rigidity tubular frame chassis is used to provide good driveability and full functionality. The TGX has a wheelbase of 3400 mm and stands 2500 mm tall. Full scale carbon fibre moulds are designed using Computer Aided Design to give the TGX its intimidating looks.

To access the cabin of the Batmobile, one has to pass through the popping front windshield and side windows just like the movies. Once inside the cabin, a soft black leather with see through fabric stitched with golden knits will welcome you. The interiors are illuminated with lights fitted in the seats, floor and pedals. The TGX is equipped with climate control, power steering and audio system.

As mentioned above, the Arkham Knight Batmobile comes powered by the Lamborghini Gallardo’s V10 engine that produces massive 560hp. The engine is mated by a paddle shift gearbox that kicks the power to the 26-inch wheels. The suspensions in the front and rear both are fully independent and made with double wishbones connected to the coil over shock absorbers.
