The Tumbler is the strongest but the design of the '66 is always the best.
Keaton's looked good but it was too low to the surface to be agile.
Schumachers are GayMobiles.

TIM Burton still # 1

I saw a couple of them at San Diego Comic-Con this past July and the one that blew me away the most was the '60s version. It just looked SO amazing.

Sign my shit up, are there tour dates or what? I've seen the Adam west-mobile once before, but I didnt have a camera. In '05 I saw the tumbler at universal city walk but the pictures were over exposed, so thwarted again...

The Batmobile from Batman & Batman Returns was my favorite. It was the first Batmobile I saw when I was a kid.
GoILL - 10/25/2012, 11:36 AM
Other than watching the film again this is one of things i'm looking forward to watching on the blu-ray for TDKR.
THEBAMF - 10/25/2012, 11:47 AM
Buton's Batmobile is the best.
Kayo - 10/25/2012, 11:49 AM
still my favorite, Keaton's Batmobile
Sanderman - 10/25/2012, 11:52 AM
Looks like I'm gonna have to visit South Louisiana pretty soon. Personally, I think they all look great
Sanderman - 10/25/2012, 11:53 AM
But I agree, Keaton's is the best
PsyGuy - 10/25/2012, 11:57 AM
Saw them at Comic-Con!

Definitely worth it! Go if you can!
Keldor - 10/25/2012, 12:16 PM
Burton's is the best design of the bunch, aesthetically.
RedeyeJedi - 10/25/2012, 12:36 PM
I'm always going to have a soft spot for the 1966 version.
Everything about it just makes me smile.

The Tumbler just f*ckin' dominates this pack. U can't help it. Greatest Batmobile Of All Time.
christianroch - 10/25/2012, 1:01 PM
The tumbler is the real Batmobile, it can get out of any dangerous situation.
GoILL - 10/25/2012, 1:36 PM
@JonathaNisMagnuM

[frick] doesn't seem like they will be coming to Chicago.
souhunter - 10/25/2012, 2:33 PM
Might have to drive to Dallas to see them. Not to far from there
luckylu - 10/25/2012, 3:04 PM
as much as i hate dallas i may just take the 3 hour drive up to see this
fistofthenorthstar - 10/25/2012, 3:46 PM
ha, i saw the adam west bm drive by last night!
NextHero08 - 10/25/2012, 6:15 PM
Burton's Batmobile was driven by the Dark Knight! Not eyebrow on the mask batman, neon batman or the military, raspy voiced, non-confident, gets his ass handed to him batman. Still the best Batman, close to the comics and the core of the characters.
PeterParker1991 - 11/23/2012, 4:34 PM
'89 Batmobile. the best. Ever
