    Man Builds Batmobile & Becomes Real Life Superhero To Sick Children



    In the pantheon of great movie cars, the many iterations of the Batmobile typically deserve a spot near the top of the list. Some folks love the modern Tumbler while others might enjoy the George Clooney or Val Kilmer-era cars. If you like the last two though, you're a mental person. You can enjoy the Michael Keaton-era Batmobile, however, because it's awesome. One man in Australia thinks so too, because he spent two years building a replica.

    Zac Mihajlovic is not quite 30 years old yet, but he has spent his relatively short time on this planet doing some damn fine deeds. Working with his grandfather, Zac built a street-legal replica of the Batmobile used in the 1989 version of the film. The duo have gone to great lengths to make sure it's a great replica, including sourcing some of the parts used on the actual movie car.

    Creating a Batmobile for your own enjoyment is one thing, but that isn't what Zac is doing with the car. He's teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and he brings a bit of Batman into the lives of some sick children. Zac dresses the part, and drives his car to the homes of the Bat-loving kids. Then he takes them for a spin in the Batmobile.

    It's not just kids that love the car though, as Zac has fielded numerous offers from folks around the globe looking to buy the car. Those offers reach into the six-figure range. Zac isn't selling though, and he plans to keep on making kids smile for some time. If you watch the above video, you'll be smiling too.
