Batman, a superhero in an American comic published by DC Comics, is a billionaire orphan, infamous businessman, and a caped hero at night. There is no doubt this “billionaire hero” does not shy away from flaunting his wealth and has assets that can only be dreamed of; one of these is his car collection.

His amazing collection of cars cannot be forgotten when we talk about Batman. He has proven multiple times that his taste in cars is impeccable. From durability to style, his cars have everything one can need to fight crime.

Batman’s cars have always been one after the other in speed and power and are extremely difficult to rank. One can say Batman loves the chase and his “supercars” help him to do so, whether it be to jump feet high or rotate 360 degrees.

With many advantages, even his cars have some limitations, so they need to be chosen depending on the situation or villain he needs to fight. So, surprisingly even Batman has to pick out the “best possible car” in the situation. Here’s what we think his top 10 cars need to be.

10. Batmobile (1943)

The Batmobile first appeared on-screen in a 15-chapter Batman serial in 1943. This model of Batmobile is the most basic of Batman’s cars.

This was a stock of the 1939 Cardillac Series 75 convertible and served as Bruce Wayne’s car.

This model appeared in the 1949 series, which was the sequel to the original series. Robert Lowey played the role of Batman.

The car was sleeker than the previous Batmobile and was a 1949 Mercury convertible. It was reported that the car had to be replaced six times during the shooting as it kept getting damaged.

8. Batmobile (1997)

The car that appeared in the movie “Batman and Robin” (1997) was designed by Herald Belkar. This car had light-up wheels and engine panels and was quite “colorful.”

The car’s specification is 33ft in length, 4.5ft in height, top speed is 230 mph, and the engine is Chevy 350 ZZ3. This Batmobile model was not largely appealed to the audience.

3. Tumbler (2005)

Nathan Crowly and Christopher Nolan created the Tumbler. It appeared in the movies “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Tumbler had an entirely different style compared to all the previous Batmobiles.

It is a mixture of Lamborghini and Humvee and suits the energy of Christian Bale’s energy with its dark and dangerous look.

2. Batmobile (2016)

This model of Batmobile is often compared to Tumbler due to its knobbly and aero flaps. It appeared in the movie “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016”.

The car was 20 feet long and 12 feet wide with a chevy hybrid engine and was tested to reach 205 mph. The double-barrel gun turret is installed in the front.

1. Batmobile (2022)

This iconic car appeared in the new Batman movie. “Intimidating” and “monster-like” were kept in mind while making the car.

The beast-like car represents Batman in the movie in which Robert Pattinson plays. The chase has been a blessing to all car enthusiasts.

The car is not as “deadly” as previous versions of Batmobile; what makes it stand out is its elegant and graceful look of the car.
