Hot Wheels has revealed today that they will be releasing a 1:43 Elite Batmobile. The limited edition will be available soon.
Limited Edition 1:42 Scale Batmobile
One of the most recognized vehicles of all time, the BATMOBILE took an evolutionary leap forward with the release of the first “BATMAN” movie. Although the 1:1 scale version cost several million dollars to design and build, you can own an equally impressive 1:43 scale replica for far less with the upcoming release of our Limited Edition 1:43 Scale BATMOBILE!
Available for the first time in the Elite lineup, this 1:43 scale version of the BATMOBILE will be an essential addition to any serious collection. The “BATMAN” film was the first installment in the Warner Bros. series and told the story of BRUCE WAYNE coping with the rise of the powerful villain, THE JOKER. To defeat this demented enemy, BATMAN™ depended on the seriously awesome BATMOBILE. Long, low and sleek, it combined design elements from 1930s coupes with modern race cars and added character-specific features like the repeating bat motif in the distinctive wing-shaped tailfins. It was technologically equipped with highly advanced automotive customization and featured a jet turbine engine reaching 530 km/h top speed.
The BATMOBILE is the first in a series of entertainment-based vehicles created just for our Elite line. Keep your eye on this spot, because coming later this year are the Back to the Future™ Time Machine (1:43 scale), the Ghostbusters™ II ECTO 1A (1:43 scale), the BAT-POD (1:18 and 1:43 scale) and the K.I.T.T. "Knight Industries Two Thousand" (1:18 and 1:43 scale). Then in early 2013, watch for the Ghostbusters™ II ECTO 1A to arrive in 1:18 scale.
To find the 1:43 Scale BATMOBILE, you won’t need echolocation. This stealthy ride will be available soon at specialty distributors and collector shops worldwide – just click here to find one near you!
