"I need a new car."
Batman's first words to Earl Cooper[1]

The Batmobile was Batman's automobile and primary mode of transportation. It has been redesigned and rebuilt over the years.

First Batmobile

Early Batmobile

Batman's early Batmobile.

Not much is known about Batman's early Batmobile. Due to mechanical trouble, he was forced to abandon it and had a more robust vehicle designed and built by Earl Cooper, an out-of-work automobile designer with a reputation as a troublemaker in the industry.[1]

Second Batmoblie

Inspiration

Bruce gets inspiration for his future vehicle.

2nd Batmobile

Batman's second Batmobile.

Earl Cooper designed and built the second Batmobile (inspired by a vehicle of similar design Bruce saw at the Gotham's World's Fair during a date with Andrea Beaumont[2]) that included such items as a turbine jet, grappling hook, ejection seats, on-board navigation and computer with video uplink, oil slick and caltrops. Batman had two vehicles with this design:

  • The first was destroyed by Penguin.
  • The second was built after Penguin's defeat with several upgrades.

However, the Batmobile was not absolutely durable, as it was once smashed easily by Bane.

In an alternate timeline, resistance leader Bruce Wayne had a very similar attack vehicle to the second Batmoblie.

Third Batmobile

Third Batmobile

Batman's third Batmobile

The third Batmobile design was completely different from the previous ones. In addition to being used by Batman, it was also driven by Batgirl at times and served Batman through his affiliation with the Justice League.

By the time Terry McGinnis discovered the Batcave, this Batmobile along with the Batwing was still present.[3]

Fourth Batmobile

"This is unbearably cool!"
Batman, during his first ride in the Batmobile[4]

5thBatmobile

The fourth Batmobile.

In the mid to late 21st century, a time when vehicles could fly, the fourth Batmobile had flight capabilities that was the main transportation for the new Batman. This new Batmobile would incorporate a similar or greater range of gadgetry as previous Batmobiles and preclude the need for the Batwing. It could project a hologram of an ordinary vehicle over itself to avoid suspicion, camouflage itself in similar fashion to his Batsuit,[5] and can be operated through the suit.[6] Its top speed is said to be Mach 3.[7]
