From looking at the above three cars you’re probably wondering what they all have in common and what they have to do with the BatBerry. The answer is simple; they all provide lighting for the BatBerry!
The Batmobile’s tail lights come from a combination of two different cars. The top set of lights are from a Ferrari 308. The bottom set are from a Ferrari Dino 365. Tracking down some decent deals on these lights was a challenge, but I was able to strike a deal with a couple of vendors on ebay will bring these lights to my door step at a fraction of their typical cost.
The Ferrari tail lights were the actual lights used for the Batmobile in the movies. Below you can see a side-by-side of the lights on the Batmobile and the Ferrari lights.
Headlights for the Batmobile are a bit of a different story. Some say that they were 89 civic headlights, others say different. What I do know is that after talking to guys at Gotham Cruisers, they have said that the 1988-92 Mazda 626 headlights worked like a charm for their kit. Thanks to ebay, I was able to grab a set of these headlights at a much cheaper price than the Ferrari tail lights…. Real shocker eh? 🙂
The next challenge when it comes to lighting, will be to fabricate all the mounting points for the lights on the body. But I guess first things first… I need to pick up the body 🙂
