The entire car isn't revealed, but the new Batmobile's mean and moody look is obvious, and it appears to combine elements of the recent Christian Bale-era Batmobile with the earlier Michael Keaton version.
See the gallery on how the Batmobile has changed over the years:
We last reported on the Tumbler and the Gumball team behind it in January of 2013. Now, Team Galag is blaming their inability to run on the folks that built the 5,000-pound brute, Parker Brother Concepts, although it has so far declined to give specific details about what's ailing the movie-inspired car. Galag issued the following statement on its Facebook page.
Due to the substandard work put into it, the Tumbler can't take part in the Gumball. Parker Brothers Concepts have been given a year to fix the issues that were faced last year but chose not to do any work until it was too late to make any difference. We have been misled many times and were told that progress was being made and chose to put our trust in their word. Unfortunately, even after many conversations regarding the preparation of the Tumbler, they had chosen not to work on it and instead used that crucial time in order to promote themselves using our property. They are also refusing to hand over the license plates in order to be able to drive the Tumbler legally on the road. We have never dealt with such lack of professionalism and integrity as we have with these people. We apologize if this disappoints any of you but trust us, we really tried to get it done for the rally but they had worked hard and succeeded in preventing us from doing so...

Really? This is stunningly good. Easily the best Batmobile yet. I love how it blends the the 1989 model with the Tumbler. IMO, the Tumbler was too far from traditional Batmobile characteristics but this takes its elements and brings Batmobile style to it.
This movie is going to be better than so many predict. Just as Affleck is going to prove critics wrong.
There are several other shots that show better angles of the car. Personally, I like it. A lot of Arkham Knight influence. A lot of people don't like the Tumblers (this has a lot of Tumbler in it too) but I think they've been the most practical of all the movie Batmobiles.
I also love Anton Furst's design of the 1989 one (Keaton) but that thing, while looking cool, is absolutely terrible as a real driving machine. Too long, no ground clearance, goofy weight distribution. Driving it through the streets of Gotham would be like driving a rail dragster around an obstacle course. But the worst feature of the Keaton Batmobile? The huge jet intake that runs directly THROUGH the cockpit.
