Battle Of The Batmobiles

 


(YouTube Link)

In the first episode of Machinima's new geek-tacular webseries Super Power Beat Down, the original TV Batmobile from the 60s TV show is set against the 1989 Tim Burton version in a drag race with some rather surprising results.

If you want to skip the chatter and get straight to the racing, jump ahead to around 7:45 and start your engines!

Why was the old batmobile closer to the camera during the "race" but on the other side of the newer batmobile at the finish line? Also, why were they changing leads so often and why was the camera car able to pass them?

Why? Because this was staged. Fakey!

Yea,Baby!! That's how you do it- Old School!!

Yes, it was fake. You have to sort of expect this when they match up two hollywood props.

It doesn't matter which is faster because they are props. Which is cooler is what matters and for my money it's the original. The styling on the '89 version tries way too hard to be dark a menacing and as a result just comes off looking really fake.
