First Officially Licensed 1966 Batmobile Replica Is Away!

Post by Mark Racop »

After filling a huge backlog of car orders prior to Fiberglass Freaks obtaining licensing from DC Comics, our first officially licensed 1966 Batmobile Replica Vehicle is on board the transport and heading to its home!

This car is DC001 (2013):

This is a momentous occasion for Fiberglass Freaks, for DC Comics, and for fans of the 1966 Batmobile. It represents over thirty years of research and development and it represents the best of the best from Fiberglass Freaks.

Image

I want to thank DC Comics for choosing my company to represent them. I want to thank my fantastic team of Freaks, who work day after day in the fiberglass dust to build these magnificent cars. I want to thank my customers for their outstanding loyalty and support. I want to thank my friends who helped build my original Batmobile back in 1983. And I want to thank my brother, my wife, and my father for their incredible support.

To the Batmobile! Let's go! Atomic Batteries to Power! Turbines to Speed!

You have a great eye, Thefanboy59! Yes, indeed--in addition to the DVD player on the dash, there is a fantastic backup camera on the license plate that gives a spectacular view on the LCD screen. You can see the image clearly duringt he day or at night.
