Whoa: Batman's Tumbler Will Be Racing in the Gumball 3000

May 09, 2013

The Gumball 3000 is an annual road rally unlike any other. Exotic cars from around the world take to public streets, traveling a 3,000-mile course that spans a different, international route every year. Despite often featuring some of the fastest, street legal cars in the world it's not a race in the traditional sense, though. There are no prizes. It doesn't matter who crosses the finish line first. All that matters is that the teams "racing" have fun and the people on the streets get a good show-- and this year it looks like they're going to get a pretty awesome one in the form of Batman's Tumbler.

The car isn't an actual one used in any of Christopher Nolan's films, but it's a pretty stunning replica. It was built by Team Galag, a group out of Saudi Arabia. They actually have two cars in the event, the other being a custom supercar they haven't unveiled yet, but it's Batman's sweet ride that we care about. The team is waiting until the start of the race, which runs stages starting in Copenhagen and ending in Monaco, to show off their custom Tumbler in full, but they've put a few glimpses of it online, and it looks just as badass as the big-screen version.

If you live in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallin, Riga, Warsaw, Vienna or Monaco (it's a huuuuge rally) and are a movie fan, you may want to keep an eye on when the Gumball 3000 will be tearing through your city.
