What A Beauty!

The 1950 Batmobile. I don't know how much those kind of designs inspire and influence my work.

Update: The same goes for the 1969 and 1964 Matra M640. This car is so smashing "Jetsons". BTW, this baby runs over 210 mph or 340 km/h:

  1. Looking to see your Duckmobile inspired in this one soon. Very best!!

  2. wow!! looks really inspiring :D

  3. I've never seen that model before, really class design, really love the long cowl up front.
    Ever noticed in animation that one of the most ripped off designs was the house in North By Northwest by the airstrip, it appeared just before the climactic chase over the president's sculptures on Mount Rushmore. Think I've seen versions of it in the Simpsons, Family Guy, Animaniacs, Futurama, and loads more..
