The new Corvette-based Batmobile will star in the second season of 'Batwoman.'
In 'The Batman' reboot movie starring Robert Pattinson, the famous caped crusader will be chasing criminals in a brand new Batmobile inspired by 1960s American muscle cars like the Ford Mustang. It's a radical departure from the military-inspired Tumbler tank, but we can't wait to see it in action.
Behind the scenes photos have also confirmed that Bruce Wayne will pilot a rare 1963 split-window Chevrolet Corvette when he isn't donning the Batsuit. This isn't the only Corvette that will be roaming the streets of Gotham City, however.
Filming is currently underway for the second season of Batwoman that airs on The CW network. While Batwoman rode a motorcycle in the first season, behind the scenes photos and videos shared by Awesome Friday confirm her new ride will be based on a C7 Corvette.
Awesome Friday managed to capture some behind the scenes footage that gives us our first look at the Batwoman's new Batmobile in action. The custom car appears to be based on a Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport modified to look like a Calloway Corvette Aerowagon that effectively transformed the C7 Corvette into a shooting brake. Alternatively, it could be based on the Calloway Corvette Aerowagon, but the low lighting makes it difficult to identify.
To make Batwoman's Corvette look more menacing, the sports car has been extensively modified with a body kit that adds wider fenders, new side skirts, and a long spoiler.
The overall shape resembles the Batmobile that starred in the 1989 'Batman' film starring Michael Keaton, while the black paint combined with orange accents is clearly a homage to the iconic Batmobile from the original 1960s TV show.
The Corvette badge is even replaced with an orange Bat logo. We're also loving the red underlights illuminating the car in the dark. Being based on the C7 Corvette Grand Sport, the new made-for-tv Batmobile is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 with 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Sadly, we don't get to see the Corvette-based Batmobile be driven in the video, but we'll get to see it in action when season two of Batwoman premieres on The CW in January 2021.
