The Batpod, along with the Tumbler, made a brief rubber burning appearance at the prestigious British Formula One Grand Prix this weekend. Next up will be an appearance at an illegal street race in Tokyo where the Batpod will battle a rival gang member for slips. Or papers. What do the illegal racing hooligans call it? Iím going to have to rewatch The Fast and the Furious.
Personally I love the idea that when you see Batman, or his stuntman aptly named Stuntman, riding down the Joker in The Dark Knight itís a real bike with a real guy wearing a real rubber suit. It lends the film a sense of authenticity.
