Batman-Themed Golf Cart? Batman-Themed Golf Cart
There’s a Batman-themed golf cart because… well of course there is! Of course, only someone with Bruce Wayne’s wealth will be able to afford it. You’ll just have to construct your own.
It’s called The Gotham Golfcart and it’s just a wee $35,000 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
On a related note, has anyone ever bought any of the crap that Hammacher Schlemmer sells? I mean, anyone? How is this company still in business? Do you even know anyone who shops at Hammacher Schlemmer?
Anyway, the cart is inspired by the Batmobile (or the Tumbler, if you must) in the Dark Knight films. Adam West would certainly not approve.
Here’s the decryption from the product page.
Deftly avoiding sand traps and water hazards as ably as its movie-screen progenitor avoided villains, the cart rolls on six course-friendly tires—the rear four are smaller 28″ versions of the originals from the movie vehicle. Powered by a 6-horsepower, battery-powered electric go-cart motor hooked up to the club car battery conversion kit. The cart can reach 38 mph for quick follow-up shots or to retrieve an errant Bat-slice. Its sleek, all-black alloy body replicates the movie vehicle’s rear afterburner while its twin aerodynamic wings fold around the passenger compartment to protect occupants from incoming golf balls. Its 4-link rear suspension provides a smooth ride over fairways, rough, and paths, while rear disc brakes provide confident stops. With adjustable leather seats, cup holders, iPad stand, and lights.
But can you run shit over? That’s the real question.
