Move over Batman - an aspiring racing driver has built the world's first road-legal Batmobile.

Casey Putsch took five months to put together the Tim Burton era inspired Batmobile, the vehicle is jet turbine powered and can travel at speeds of up to 180mph. While replicas have been built before, this one is special in that it is a legal vehicle and can be driven on the roads.

"An aspiring racing driver and Batman fanatic has created the world's first road-legal jet turbine powered Batmobile - which can reach speeds of 180mph."
