Casey Putsch has taken on a lofty design exercise to create and build the world’s only turbine powered Bat Car. Taking the the fantasy of the late 80′s that we all know and love, and making it reality is just the start. There is one catch; no sound effects or audio overlays. The lines of the vehicle support a turbine powerplant to create a car we all desire and hope for.
Powered by a turbine engine from a decommissioned military helicopter. Putsch has taken the fantasy of movie magic and the power from what was once used to protect our country and combined them into an excercise that inspires bigger dreams and opens creativity.
Street registered in the US and ready for immediate sale, this car needs little introduction as it has found international publicity in all forms of media.
Completed in 2011, this car was constructed in a professional racing facility alongside Grand Prix, DTM, Indy and Sports Racing cars. Its construction is in a completely different league than both replicas and of course the movie prop cars. The perception of this car is best summed up by one comment from the huge cross section of media attention “Replica? I think the movie cars were replicas of this!” Having a perfect reliability record, this car is ready to be enjoyed by an enthusiast who is looking for the ultimate luxury in one-upmanship. “Born Rich” was quoted as saying “Unluckily this car is a one-off version, but had it not been so, it certainly would have been on the wish-list of every automobile lover.” Luckily though, exclusivity is ensured.
Please see the imbedded videos that show the car being started and driven, as well as a clip from a documentary explaining the military drone helicopter from which this car’s engine had come from, and lastly of the car winning the “People’s Choice” award at the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance.
