this one of kind car ‘arkham car’ was built by caresto for team galag as part of the 2016 gumball 3000 rally. the style is based on blueprints from the ‘arkham knight’ video game, but has been redesigned and manufactured with drivability and full functionality in mind. the wheelbase is 3.40 meters and the width of this special car is 2.5 meters. a highly rigid tubular frame was manufactured to provide good handling and offer a stiff impression.

front and rear suspensions are fully independent and made with double wishbones connected to the coil over shock absorbers, up front though a specially designed aluminum push rod setup. a lamborghini V10 engine with 560 hp powers the ‘arkham car’ that is coupled to a paddle shifting gearbox for the 26 inch wheels. braking is handled by ABS supported 8-pot brembo calipers in the front and 6-pot calipers for the massive brake discs.

the complicated all carbon fiber body was made from full scale moulds which were milled out from CAD drawings. inside, the driver and one passenger witness a combination of black soft leather all kept together by golden stitching. LED lights fill the cabin and include all comfort functions such as air conditioning, power steering and sound system.
