Batmobile (Batman)

There are many avid fans of Batman around the world, but this fan, took his love for the character to another level. His name is Zac Mihajlovic from Australia. He took two years to hand-build his very own batmobile! However, he is not the first to replicate the batmobile vehicle, but his vehicle can be legally driven on roads. On a charitable side, he collaborated with Make-a-wish Foundation to make terminally-ill children’s dream come true.

Donald Duck Car

A real-life car has replicated the Donald Duck’s car, from the number plate “313” to its bright red exterior colour and white tires. As a matter of fact, even in the cartoon itself, a detailed diagram of the 313 was produced in 1998 by Claude Lacroix in a French journal. Who knew Donald Duck was such a gearhead?
