James Gordon: "That was a very brave thing you did Wayne."Bruce Wayne saves Reese (who almost reveals Batman's true identity on television until The Joker intercedes and says he'll blow up a hospital in Gotham unless Reese is killed) when he uses his Lamborghini Murcielago to intercept an attempt on Reese's life.
Bruce Wayne: "What... running a stop light?"
Bruce Wayne: "Do you think I should go to the hospital?"
James Gordon: "You don't watch a whole lot of news, do you, Mr Wayne?"
When I saw this Burago 1/24 scale die-cast Lamborghini Reventon, with its matt gray/black paintwork, opening doors, hood and trunk, bucket seats, detailed dashboard and precision engine, I was thinking, "It's so batmobile-like" and couldn't resist not getting it and adding it to my Batmobile collection. At that time, The Dark Knight movie wasn't out yet so it was a pleasant surprise when Bruce Wayne uses his other "Batmobile", the Lamborghini Murcielago, in the movie. Perhaps he'll replace it with the Reventon in the third instalment. That'll be a hoot!
Don't know much about cars but I just love the design; the exterior styling was supposedly inspired by the F-22 Raptor. For more about cars, visit Kenny's site. He's the car aficionado.
Not that into cars but I just couldn't take my eyes off this beauty!!
