Basically a modified Chevrolet Caprice Classic of 1995 make, the Batmobile is a RWD with petrol fuel type. It has a 5.7-litre V8 engine at its heart but it is how it looks that would be its mainstay. And while services of Batman aren't offered with the vehicle, it is still likely to draw a whole lot of attention because of its close resemblance to the car in the Tim Burton movie.

For those looking for something almost as iconic and yet not completely out of place on actual roads, there is a 1959 Cadillac up for grabs as well. Resembling the vehicle that featured in the Ghostbuster series in the 1980s, the mileage and other specific mechanical details have not been revealed.

Then there is the speed demon that sent Marty and Doctor Emmett Brown hurtling through the corridors of time in the 1985 film Back to the Future. No, this 1981 Delorean DMVC-12 won't transport the owner back to pre-Covid-19 times but the replica is an unmistakable ode to the car in the movie. A 2.9-litre V6 engine powers this 2-door coupe which runs on petrol.
