The custom limousine segment is still something the most compelling, the weirdest, and incredibly confusing. There seems to be no limit to what one can do to create a “luxury” vehicle that stands out from the crowd. A good example of this is the Ford F-650 Batman Limousine below.
In ancient times, the limousine was considered a symbol of social status. Nowadays, that is hardly true anymore because most self-respecting entrepreneurs and people of the public would rather ride public rather than get caught in these cars. Instead, limousines have turned into fun entertainment, often used in drunk parties, such as singles, weddings, and excursions.
The Ford F-650 Batman Limousine is the perfect vehicle for that purpose. It is part of the limo fleet of the Vegas VIP Limo service, so if you have a chance to visit Las Vegas these days, you can still try it out. Batman Limousine is described as a suitable vehicle for those who want their boring life more attractive, adding “superhero” qualities. It may sound overkill, but that is the irresistible appeal of this giant car.
As its name suggests, this Batman limo is built on the chassis of a Ford F-650 midsize pickup truck. Regrettably, the limo service mentioned above doesn’t provide any details about the bike, where it is made, what it means or how much it costs in the end, but at least. they said it could host large parties for 26 people. This means that you and your 25 best friends will be able to see Las Vegas on the trip, while pretending to be the Dark Knight walking secretly around the streets to fight crime … while drunk.
Inside, Batman Limousine has three large rows of seats and two bars. The seats are upholstered in dark leather, matching the Batman theme, and there’s a large Batman logo on the wall separating the cabin from the cockpit. Everything is in black, from disco lights and backlighting to the Batman logo, thereby making alternate colors “for an eye-catching effect” stand out even more. Of course, the car is also equipped with an extreme stereo system to match the number of flashing disco lights.
As for capacity, the Vegas VIP Limo also provided no information. Currently, Ford is offering the F-650 in two options, either with a 7.3-liter V8 petrol engine or a Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine paired with a six-speed Ford TorqShift HD automatic transmission. Obviously this is a powerful pickup, and transforming into a limo is a bit wasteful of that.
The last thing worth noting is that limousines based on the Ford F-650 are actually not rare, and one can be found in Las Vegas. But this is said to be the only one to follow the Batman theme, even though handling the vehicle is somewhat forced.
