Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your very own Batmobile? Well, Mercedes-Benz can let you drive like a super-hero! The company’s latest project was the EQ Silver Arrow 01.
Mercedes-Benz is the first manufacturer to compete with a Formula 1 vehicle as well as a Formula E vehicle in racing. While a Formula 1 vehicle is a classic gas-powered racing vehicle, the Formula E vehicle is powered by an electric motor. Unveiled at the International Motor Show in Geneva, the EQ Silver Arrow 01 is set to make an impact on spectators. Its carefully calculated lines amplify the visual aesthetic of the car. Also, it bears a striking resemblance to the Batmobile. The lines and curves on the Batmobile from Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 are almost identical.
There are some other similar features that the two vehicles share. Both the Silver Arrow and the Batmobile have a centered cockpit. Both vehicles also include two rear fins. These rear fins are a common characteristic that most Batmobiles (regardless of which adaptation) have in common.
But how does it drive?
Mercedes-Benz has been a renowned auto company for years. Their innovation in both design and performance is vast! Now, they’ve released a car similarly close to Batman’s Batmobile. Not only does the car look great, but it’s a remarkable machine with incredible performance.
Mercedes-Benz anticipates a great racing year! The car itself features a 52kWH battery, with 340 horsepower! Thus, the car can go from 0 to 60mph in about 2.7 seconds. This is faster than the Tesla Model X! The car is surprisingly light, as well. Other vehicles in its class are more than this 2,000-pound vehicles, while this one weighs under 2,000. This car is set to be on the track by the end of 2019.
So, what do you think? Do you think that the EQ Silver Arrow 01 is something to anticipate? Do you want to drive your own Batmobile?
