We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.
This Corvette was created with a lot of custom fiberglass and was the “work” car for a Batman impersonator back in the 1990’s. On the inside, custom work includes some of the gadgets and gizmos you would expect to find in the real Batmobile including a TV screen and a big red glowing button. Okay, I’m being somewhat facetious, but its cool to see that the customization didn’t stop with the exterior.
The eBay listing runs through December 4th. Additional pictures and a video can be found at MarkShields.com
