In the late summer of 1965, an all-new Batman TV series was gearing up, with Dean Jeffries hired to build a Batmobile for the show. Along with its enduring popularity, its influence continues in Batmobile designs today and is considered by many to be the Batmobile.

In the summer of 1989, Batman came to the big screen for the first time since 1966. Warner Brothers had Tim Burton bring his unique style to the movie, and Anton Furst was hired as production designer for Gotham City and a new version of the Batmobile.

Among the new ideas to appear in the last three Batman movies was an all-new Batmobile, the Tumbler. The primary focus was to make this Batmobile as real as possible: at 9 feet wide and 15 feet long, the car weighed in at 2.5 tons but was still capable of 0-60MPH in under six seconds.
