2. The West/Ward version from theí66 series.
3. The Tumbler from the Nolan films.

Nothing can top Burton's Batmobile. Nothing.

Except for Affleckís Batmobile in the DCEU. Iíd even take Nolanís Tumbler over the Ď89 Batmobile.

Burtonís Ď89 Batmobile looks like a flimsy fiberglass mold placed over a long chassis. A slight fender bender would obliterate that thing. Itís also so low to the ground they should add a speed bump into Batmanís Rogues Gallery.

I realize Iím on the minority on this and fully expect Batman/Batman Returns to win this poll by a mile.

The boy in me says the original '60s Batmobile but the Batman Forever one looks like it would be a ton of fun ripping down the streets of Gotham.

I like the simple and sleek design from the late 90s animated series. The fins are less pronounced than the movie mobiles of the 90s, and less tank-like than the Nolan vehicles.

Of course the 60s batmobile is a nostalgia classic, but also clearly a death-trap.

For a car that really announces "Here comes the Batmobile," I like the 1940s car with the shield on the front.

Purely out of nostalgia, voted for Batman/Batman Returns, but I do like the 60s car, Tumbler and DCEU versions. I also don't completely hate the one from Batman Forever.

1989 Batmobile, hands down. It will never be topped.

The 1989 Batmobile got sexier curves than Catwoman.

66 Tv
89 (I still say "shields open" occasionally when pressing the unlock on the keyfob)
Tumbler

You only see it for a little bit, but the one in Titans looks pretty good too.

The rest

Re: Favorite Batmobile

I'm sorry but the only correct answer is the tumbler. No other batmobile even comes close. I absolutely hated the design of it when it was first revealed. Until I saw it on screen. They built an actual real life fully functional batmobile. It helps that it came from the greatest batman series as well though.

Great hour length documentary on the different batmobiles up to the Dark Knight Rises.

I even saw the 1960s Batmobile on display once, but I can't remember where.

Re: Favorite Batmobile

I'm pretty eager to see the new one in action. It's the first since the 60's (which is clearly the best) that's actually a practical car. The Burton mobile is just as nostalgic for me as it is for everyone else here, but it's so clunky. It looks like a hunk of plastic being towed around a soundstage.

1. 89
2. The Batman
3. Forever
4. 60s
5. Dceu

The crumbler does not make the list.

The Cloonster Mobile is a one seater, so he looks like a kid on a coin ride. And the wings flap around when he was riding in it.

I'm with you 100% here. I picked the DCEU version, and agree that the Batman/Batman Returns version DOES look flimsy and utterly breakable.

It reminds me of a turtle shell. It resembles a tank more than a car. I can't take away that it's a genius concept because the bike is hidden inside. It's not the most elegant mobile but the most practical of all vehicles. I can see why it's a heavy favorite.

I was searching Batmobiles polls online and it seems the Tumbler won most favorite at Reddit.
