If you saw DC’s 2017 superhero film Justice League, you might have spotted a custom-made Mercedes AMG Vision GT driven by Bruce Wayne himself.

Obviously, Batman’s most iconic vehicle is the Batmobile.

However, let’s not forget that Bruce Wayne – billionaire playboy that he is – also has a sweet collection of supercars.

The car’s name stands for Vision Gran Turismo and it was even featured in the racing game series of the same name.

The Mercedes AMG Vision GT concept car is based on Formula One cars, the Batmobile, and various car versions from Mercedes-AMG.

It also features a twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre M157 AMG V8 engine with an output of 580 hp.

Truly, it’s a car worthy of Wayne Enterprises.

However, for this specific model – the one that made it out of the video games and into the movies – they had to modify the car specifically so that Ben Affleck – playing the Caped Crusader – could fit in and out in his Batman costume.

They made it 10 percent larger, building the whole car bigger so that it could feature in the film.

Cool, right?

Pininfarina also recently released four new supercars, based on Bruce Wayne and his vigilante alter ego, Batman.

Although the concept car is just a prototype, American company J&S Worldwide Holdings announced the production of five such cars.

Imagine driving a supercar like this down the streets of Gotham.
