This fan-made, turbine-powered Batmobile was featured by Engadget earlier and we’ve been getting drool all over the upholstery ever since.

For the true geek, and we know there’s at least a bit of that inside anyone who bothered to click on this link in the first place, this is the ultimate in cars. I don’t care what you say about other sci-fi and superhero vehicles. The Batmobile is just plain better than all of them. So I’m supremely jealous whenever I come across someone who has actually gone to the efforts to procure one, even if it’s not quite as well-equipped as Bruce Wayne’s own ride.

The car’s creator describes it like this:

“This is the only Batmobile created that makes fiction reality. It is powered by a military spec Boeing turboshaft engine driving the rear wheels through a semi automatic gearbox. It features a custom tube frame/monocoque chassis with fully independant suspension, disc brakes, and a sequential shifter. It runs on kerosene, diesel, or Jet fuel and has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper. The car is registered and insured for the road in the United States. Built in 2011 by Casey Putsch of Putsch Racing.”
