sporty and tough
For his trilogy of Batman films, director Christopher Nolan worked with production designer Nathan Crowley to design the newest version of the Batmobile called “the Tumbler.” Before manufacturing a vehicle, Crowley and a crew of thirty spent two months carving a full-sized Styrofoam replica.
Crowley described the Tumbler as a cross between a Lamborghini and a tank. Six Tumblers were built for Batman Begins. For The Dark Knight, the design was altered to include a Batpod — a motorcycle that ejects from the front of the vehicle.
