Man Builds a Turbine-Powered Batmobile With iPad Display


Casey Putsch knows a thing or two about cars. His company, Putsch Racing designs, restores and appraises them daily. So if anyone could make an actual turbine-powered Batmobile, it would be him.

Indeed, Putsch went all out on his Burton-era Batmobile, outfitting it with a 385-horespower Boeing turboshaft engine lifted from a naval drone helicopter that can run on jet fuel, kerosene or diesel. Despite being 20-feet long and 7.5-feet wide, the Batmobile is completely street legal.

He also made the sound system iPod-compatible and added an iPad to his dash to function as an avionics system and GPS navigator.

Check out the video after the break and learn why Putsch’s batsuit had better include a set of earplugs.
