Casey Putsch certainly has something to be proud of. The auto restoration genius has completed a real-life Batmobile. The vehicle, which looks about as awesome as it does in the movies, is powered by “…a Boeing turbine engine from a decommissioned military helicopter.” Putsch’s web site has more:
Putsch Racing has taken on an lofty design exercise to create and build the world’s only turbine powered Batmobile. Taking the the fantasy of the 1989 original and making it reality is just the start, but there is one catch, no movie sound effects or audio overlays.
This is the only Batmobile created that makes fiction reality. It is powered by a military spec Boeing turboshaft engine driving the rear wheels through a semi automatic gearbox. It features a custom tube frame/monocoque chassis with fully independant suspension, disc brakes, and a sequential shifter. It runs on kerosene, diesel, or Jet fuel and has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper. The car is registered and insured for the road in the United States. Built in 2011 by Casey Putsch of Putsch Racing . com
