Turbine powered Batmobile uses iPad for in dash GPS and audio system [video]

If you are a fan of Batman, you are going to love this Batmobile. It is a real road car which has been built by Casey Putsch of the Putsch Racing facility. What’s more, it is powered by a turbine which sounds absolutely awesome and has an in-dash GPS and audio system powered by an iPad. What more could any Batman loving iPad geek want?

This is the only Bat car created that makes fiction reality. It is powered by a military spec turboshaft engine driving the rear wheels through a semi automatic gearbox. It features a custom tube frame/monocoque chassis with fully independent suspension, disc brakes, and a sequential shifter. It runs on kerosene, diesel, or Jet fuel and has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper. The car is registered and insured for the road in the United States. Built in 2011 by Casey Putsch. Casey Putsch has the Putsch Racing facility.

Take a look at the car driving around the streets and listen to the sound of that engine in the video after the break. There are also a lot more pictures too. I want one now!
