You know...I have never liked the batmobile used in Batman Returns



Look at how cheap it looks compared to the REAL one from 1989:





As I understand it there was only 1 of these built - anyone know where it ended up? IMO this is the only REAL '89 Batmobile.

I'm not sure what you mean by cheap. The Batmobile from the '89 film looks identical to the Batmobile in Batman Returns.

the 89 and 92 are the same cars in 92 jay painted it flat black and wb still has both screen used cars they are still gray now from the onstar adds the ones you see like at ny are the ones used for tours and shows they are narrower(rear fenders) than the screen use ones plus the aircraft parts are fiberglass (a dead give away) and gloss black

Are you sure?

1992 Batmobile - Jay Ohrberg's Hollywood Cars



Looks like a distinctly different project for '92.


And by cheap, I guess it's the gloss finish that really 'cheaps' the overall car to me.

those are the ones jay built for tours ,museums.ect. carl casper also built them..then i think it when to the trix rods guys if you look at the 89/92 movies you can see how much wider they are by looking at the gas caps .the fender goes on passed it about four inchs the cars like mine drop off right after the cap(so they would fit in a eight foot wide trailor)

I like both the satin and gloss finish on the 89 and prefer all steel parts on it too. I have the wide fenders on mine so ya it doesn't fit in a car trailer.
I supply wide body 89 kits and all steel sub assemblies such as side mech's, complete steel interiors amd these handmade nose cones.... My 89 kits are perfect and require NO bondo:) That 66 in the link was a prop car of mine thats been totally redone by the new owner.

I do prefer the 89 car to the returns car, if I remember right, the returns car had the gloss finish which made it look cheep.
