Jay Leno takes a closer look at Batman's Tumbler [video]

The Tumbler has been Batman’s ride since the Batman Begins aired in 2005.

The Tumbler is much more than most typical movie cars, which are lately mainly CGI.

Recently Jay Leno had a chance to take a closer look at the Tumbler and later took it for a quick drive on the Californian roads.

The Tumbler took about a year to build and the first prototype cost around $1 million. In total so far seven custom-built Tumblers have been built, each powered by a Chevy V8 not the fake jet engine as you can see in the movie. Top speed for this wild creation is up to 90 mph.

Check out the video below to see the Tumbler in Jay Leno’s Garage and later on the road.
