Don’t lie. You’ve always wondered what it would be like to watch different generation Batmobiles go at it in a good ‘ol classic drag race. The folks over at Super Power Beat Down made that a reality by taking the 1989 Batmobile and pitting it against its 1966 predecessor.
Obviously in the sake of entertainment, you shouldn’t hold much merit to the results. Especially since there’s some creative editing at the end for the slow-mo clip that reveals the winner. Nonetheless, the 1966 Batmobile was built off a C4 Chevrolet Corvette with an estimated 300 to 325 hp thanks to a fuel-injected small block, while the more recent ’89 is powered by a carbureted Chevy small block and has closer to 285 hp or so.
So who wins? And what more could you really ask for in a video clip? Cute girl for a host, a pair of Batmobiles burning rubber and well, the end result that is always entertaining.
Watch the Batmobiles fight it out after the break. Be warned that the end of the video may not be safe for work – it’s your obligatory girl in a bikini clip.
