Meet the Batmobile Tumbler Golf Cart. Yep! And it’s for sale. Since the 2005 premiere of Batman Begins, the armored, building-jumping Tumbler has become as popular as past Batmobiles from comic books and the big and small screens.
Like the full-size Tumbler, this miniature version features dual rear wheels, plus a rocket booster. So it doesn’t exactly match the performance necessary for a high-speed chase through Gotham, but maybe Batman will be able to catch the Joker on his day off at the country club.
Prestige Imports is asking $49,950 for it, which makes it a pretty expensive golf cart. Still, modified golf carts are fairly popular in Florida, where they’re used as neighborhood vehicles in the state’s many retirement communities.
It’s also a bargain compared to the full-size Tumbler replica that turned up on the Internet back in February, with an asking price of $1 million. Reportedly one of a series of five, it features Chevrolet LS1 V-8 power and 44-inch Super Swamper tires.
With the Chris Nolan cycle of Batman movies completed, the real Tumbler has been retired, and a new Batmobile is poised to grab the spotlight. Teaser shots of Batman and his new ride were released recently, although neither will be fully revealed until the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie premieres in 2016.
