Elite Batmobile Slide Show

admin 3 Comments

New video slide show of the dealer’s sample sent to us courtesy of Replicarz.com (Replicarz still has Elites for ordering) Actual video footage coming up in the next day or so. Comments below. 

Overall – lots of nice upgrades. Sadly – most of them just make the model look more accurate to the #1 car IN ITS CURRENT STATE, in Barris’ garage. Not how the car looked on screen or in 1966. Here are some interesting hard to see new differences from the standard model to watch for:

  • Flocked carpeting
  • New detectoscope with inner decal (not accurate at all)
  • Aluminum painted rocker panels and door-wells (no texture detail)
  • Chrome, UN-segmented dash with open Futura radio(?) and other odd guage
  • Parachute pull ring (black plastic)
  • Resized batphone with cord
  • Chromed inner door trim
  • Light lenses under front and rear gills
  • Compass decal
  • Steering wheel chrome inner struts and center decal
  • Photo-etched door handles
  • Photo-etched bat radar
  • Full fire extinguisher
  • Clear red antler lenses
  • Routed and painted chassis
  • Seatbelts and bat buckles

    Is the paint job better? I have found a few from TRUS that were horrible, and overspray…nd finger prints!

    Yeah I know what you mean. There seems to be a big problem with handling and packing before the finish is dry. I’ve yet to see a perfect paint job. I’d hate to spend top dollar for an Elite or Super Elite just to have it ruined by a crappy paint job. I’m also wondering if the hood and trunk are still plastic or did they upgrade them to metal?

    Same paint job as far as I can see. Metal trunk and hood.
