The History of the Batmobile

"[Batman] has two primary modes of transportation: swinging from gothic clock towers on his Batline, and cruising around Gotham in the Batmobile. Sure, he's got a Batwing and a Batjet and a Batcopter and even a Bat-Segway, but mostly Batman relies on his ride to get from point A to point B.
"Now, the Batmobile is a seriously tricked-out car, and you can't blame the guy for wanting to drive it, but it must be a serious pain in the ass dealing with the Batmobile every night.

"As anyone who lives in or near a big North American city knows, urban driving can be a maddening experience. Heavy traffic, one-way streets, swerving buses, crazy-ass taxi drivers, potholes, inadequate signage, kamikaze bike messengers, oblivious pedestrians — don't even get me going about parking...Now just imagine trying to navigate Gotham City's rat nest of streets and alleys in an extra-wide custom hot rod with a wonky torque converter and limited visibility.


"Okay, the actual driving itself would probably not be an issue, as Batman probably has advanced defensive driving skills and an intimate knowledge of the street layout of Gotham. Plus, people would get the hell out of the Batmobile's way. If Batman wants to change lanes, you will let him into your lane.
"But what about parking? Can that thing even fit into a standard parking spot? Have you ever tried to parallel park a car that has huge scalloped bat wings on the back while wearing a rubber cowl that prevents you from moving your neck more than five degrees in any direction? I want to see a director's cut of Tim Burton's Batman where Michael Keaton tries to slide that beast into a parking spot without scraping the curb or bumping into another car."
