This version of the dark knight created
the base for all the movies since. The
black rubber suit sacrificed mobility for a
strong and intimidating look. The added
muscles successfully emulated his
counterpart in the comic books.

This Batmobile is the first to feature the yellow
bat emblems on the doors. The nose of the car,
where the hood is, also has a "V" depression

This Batcycle is a 1965 Harley
Davidson with Robin's
sidecar — a detachable
self-propelled vehicle.
1978 - Batman
animated series/comics
This is the last of the
Futura–type cars. It looks
more like a toy. However,
the nose was elongated to
distract from that.
1986 - Frank Miller’s graphic novel
Easily the largest Batmobile. This ‘tank’
was created and modified due to riots. The
only thing that can damage it isn't from
Earth. It shrugs off gunfire, grenades, and
rocket launcher attacks, and offers its own
array of heavy weaponry.
