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.

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.
