        Obviously not beeing an avid reader of VTK, Simon Måssebäck (who may or may not have cheap kitchen utensils named after him) missed out on the auction of the original Batmobile we reported about earlier this year.

        Instead he went and spent ONE MILLION DOLLARS to build his own one!
        Insert pinky finger into mouth now.

        It’s built onto the chassis of a 1973 Lincoln Continental and has a 700 hp engine. Like the, uh, real Batmobile, it’s loaded with all sorts of gadgetry:

        There’s sat-nav to help you find the scene of the crime (and other helpful POIs), a plasma TV for video calls to Albert (and for distraction during Stockholm traffic jams), voice recognition to keep your fighting hands free (and avoid nasty fines), height-adjustable suspension for navigating dramatic obstacles in your path (and speed bumps), a rear-view camera to watch your back (and help with tight parking squeezes), and machine guns for, er, shooting stuff.

        Plus speakers for bargaining with prostitutes. Oh, and it’s not a go-cart this time.
