Batman on Budget: A Gallery of Recession-Era Batmobiles

Batmobiles 4

The recession hit everyone pretty hard, and superhero millionaires aren’t immune to such economic difficulties. It’s been a rough couple of years for Batman, and he’s had to sell the Tumbler in favor of…other options.

I’ve tracked down some of best (worst) alternative Batmobiles around the country that Bruce has added to his fleet. Some are laughable, others actually kind of badass. He might not catch any bad guys in these, but at least he’s trying.

Check out the full gallery below, and if I’ve missed any, I’d love it if you would send them in.
