This man created his very own DIY Batmobile and it’s absolutely epic

This man just created his very own DIY Batmobile and needless to say, it’s going down a treat with fans of the Dark Knight.

He documented the entire build process online too.

Just like the original Batmobile, this one was built using the chassis from a 1970s Corvette.

Viewers were shocked when they discovered that the engine had just 320 horsepower, with one remarking that his mother’s mini-van had more.

Horsepower aside, reactions to the car – built by U_Stop – were overwhelmingly positive, and it’s easy to see why.

Fans took to his channel to compliment his handiwork, as well as make some requests of their own.

“How much to rent this for prom?” one asked.

Now that would be one to rock up to your high school in style. 

Others deemed the car’s creator a ‘vigilante’ worthy of a Hollywood flick.

“This is a flex”, another admirer said.

“Bro thinks he’s Michael Keaton,” another said.

Speaking of Michael Keaton, eagle-eyed viewers noted that the man behind the build opted to go with the design of the Batmobile that was made famous in Tim Burton’s 1989 blockbuster.

In this movie, the Batmobile had a slimmer look and even had bat features incorporated into the design – with textured ‘bat wings’ on the side as an extra touch.

Even though this DIY Batmobile is far from subtle, it is certainly a bit more discreet than the replica fellow TikToker JBKanal built.

Rather than using Tim Burton’s supercar-style Batmobile, JBKanal used The Dark Knight’s Tumbler as an inspiration for this creation.

They’re both faithful replicas, and you have to admire the craftsmanship and passion behind these projects.

And the madness, too.
