What does Batman drive when the batmobile is in the shop? It turns out the caped crusader makes due with a Lamborghini to fight the forces of evil and pick up his dry cleaning.
An alert and amused driver caught Batman in action on video, as he took his black Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder for a spin in Maryland. Later, another person took a picture of Batman having a tête-à-tête with some other crime fighters (no, it wasn’t with his fellow Super Friends, it was with the police). The officers stopped superhero because his license plate was missing.
You can watch the video of Batman cruising after the jump. Just be warned, there’s some rude language.

Televisions biggest motoring loud mouth is undeniably Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame. He is known to either really love a car, or hate it to bits, nothing comes in the middle.
Back in 2006, he raved on and on about the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, a car he loved so much, he actually put his money where his mouth is and bought one.
However, his love for it has been gone for a while now because he sold it a year later. Its second owner has now also put this car up for sale. It’s priced quite well also for such a car, asking about $145,000 for this 2007 Gallardo Spyder, which has covered 19,250-miles.
So if you think you are the ultimate Top Gear fan, you should consider buying it and perhaps make your own Top Gear style videos shouting “Pwwrrrr” every 10-seconds.

They may not have the space needed to deliver meals to the elderly on a regular basis, but Meals on Wheels has never looked as flashy as it did recently when food was dropped off to the elderly in a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and a Bentley Continental GT.
In Pascack Valley, N.J., the Meals on Wheels program got a lift from Gotham Dream Cars, an exotic-car rental company and club. The idea behind this pairing was to raise public awareness of older people who can’t leave their homes to buy food on their own. “The support of our community is essential to combating senior hunger in the area,” said Jeanne Martin, the director of the Pascack Valley Meals on Wheels program.
Also giving the volunteers a helping hand (or wheels) were a Dodge Viper SRT-10, a Mercedes-Benz S550, a Range Rover Supercharged and a Maserati Quattroporte, giving a whole new meaning to the term “fast food.” And Gotham Dream Cars did more than just donate cars for the day – they also pledged to donate 10 percent of its December gift certificate sales to the charitable organization.
