Vietnamese car enthusiasts were left astounded by the recent unveiling of a Batmobile prototype that bore striking resemblance to the iconic vehicle. What added to the surprise was the fact that this remarkable creation was designed by a mere 22-year-old architecture student.
Nguyen Dac Chung, a student, embarked on a mission to construct his very own Batmobile, beginning in the middle of last year. Taking inspiration from Christophe Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, specifically the Tumbler prototype featured in the films released between 2005 and 2012, Chung commenced the manufacturing process according to his devised plan in October 2019.
Chung has made significant progress on the car, completing 90% of it after 10 months. Throughout the manufacturing journey, Chung faced multiple challenges with procuring components and spare parts. However, despite these hurdles, the car is now fully operational and able to run on the road. Additionally, the car boasts the impressive feature of automatic opening and closing batwing doors.
According to Chung, also known as “Architects Dac,” many people believe that the Batmobile’s chassis and body are the most costly components. However, he revealed that the substantial investment was actually made in the large rims and tires. The vehicle features two front wheels and four rear wheels. Chung personally created a 3D design for the body, which was then constructed using composite materials. The engine of the Batmobile, proudly made in Vietnam by Chung, is sourced from a high-displacement 400cc vehicle.
Chung claimed that he used a substantial amount of 500 million dollars to construct this Batmobile, which he funded through the earnings generated by his own cosplay shop.
