Chevrolet Introduces Life-Sized Lego Batmobile at Detroit Auto Show

Chevrolet and LEGO® partnered to build the vehicle, which is inspired by Batman's Speedwagon from the upcoming Warner Bros. animated film "The LEGO® Batman Movie".

The Lego Batmobile is built on an aluminum square tube platform, and took over 340,000 Lego Bricks to build. Design alone of the Batmobile took more than 200 hours.

Chevrolet's mock listing for the vehicle claims that it is equipped with Wi-Fi, has 20,000 horsepower and is available for the reasonable price of $48 million.

"To work on the LEGO Batmobile with Warner Bros.is an absolute thrill for us at Chevy", said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet marketing. When required, one can also press a button and activate the monster truck mode and parallel park mode, and not forgetting the roof "ejection" function in times of emergencies. He'll be riding around in his Batmobile in search of the Joker (voiced by Zach Galifianakis), but he realizes he might need help. Inside the Batmobile is an impressive cockpit that was fitted with modern communications technology.

The LEGO Batman Movie is directed by Chris McKay and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, who worked together on The LEGO Movie. According to Entertainment Weekly, "The Lego Batman Movie" will feature Rosario Dawson as Batgirl and Michael Cera as Robin. "There's a deep-dive that you can do in the movie. People can go real deep".

We will just have to wait until February 10th rolls around for the LEGO Batman Movie to make its debut on the silver screen.

This life-sized Batmobile (nicknamed "The Speedwagon" in the film) is for display purposes only and, with no motor, is not considered road-worthy.
