When I was a kid, I used to hear older people saying that boys will always be boys.
I never had any idea what’s that supposed to mean, until I heard about Casey Putsch’s ultimate turbine-powered batmobile.
And you heard it right, a “batmobile” exactly the car that batman has in the 1989 sci-fi movie. Putsch actually revived his childhood fantasies into reality.
Recently, at ToddCopperrider.com a post about cars features Casey Putsch’s Batmobile of which claimed to be the only turbine-powered bat car in the world.
Unthinkably, this car is not ordinary because its engine is actually a military Boeing turboshaft helicopter engine that I assume to provide the swiftest, cleanest and the most efficient power drive.
Specifically, this batmobile has 139′ wheelbase in 20 ft long, 7 feet, 5 inches wide with an estimated weight of 2800 lbs (w/o driver).
It has a monocoque chassis in a steel tube frame with a fully independent cockpit-adjustable pneumatic suspension, limited slip differential and disc brakes.
It also has the a sliding canopy with and on board fire suppression system which is a good measure of security.
Aside from that, this is also really a techy car that is operated with an I-Pad for reverse digital avionics system, 4 speed sequential shift and semi-automatic transmission.
At present, this car is registered and insured for the road in the US of which everyone can drive in its very basic operation.
However, one thing that interests me most is the fast-turbo speed of this car. I want to see this Batmobile actually running in its ultimate speed. This is so cool!
Although I’m not a fan of batman, I admire Casey Putsch for his ingenuity in this car.
