Real Batmobile experience on offer at London musuem

It’s the ultimate for wannabe Caped Crusaders - a London museum is offering the superhero inside yourself the opportunity to hit the batpole and head for a spin in an original Batmobile.

Soon one incredibly fortunate fan will have the chance to get a front-seat thrill as one of the classic cars speeds around a circuit in Surrey.

The vehicle was used in Tim Burton's 1989 film and comes courtesy of the London Motor Museum.

The Evening Standard reported that the museum in Hayes, west London, is the owner of one of only four original Batmobiles, built for the film.

The lucky winner will feel the thrill of a batmobile ride - but as a passenger - as they will not be allowed to take the wheel on the 2.2 mile Longcoss Proving Ground track. Afterwards, they will be given a dinner for four at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
