The TV program Super Power Beat Down has organised an exciting drag race between two legendary cars, to fulfill every fans dream. On the starting grid are the Batmobile used in the television series Batman (aired between 1966 and 1969) and the prototype chosen by director Tim Burton in 1989, for his Batman movie. The first Batmobile was actually a Corvette C4 mounting a 6.0-litre V8 L98, with output ranging between 305 and 325 hp. Reaching a top speed of 240-257 km/h can cover a quarter of a mile in 9.5-10-5 seconds.
The Batmobile driven by Michael Keaton, instead integrates the front section of a Chevrolet Camaro to a specially crafted frame, boasting a 5.7-litre V8 engine with 290hp. It reaches a top speed of 290 km/h and takes 10-11 seconds to finish the quarter mile.
