The North American based automaker Ford has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the F-150 The Crimefighter, at the Comic-Con in San Diego.
According to the car manufacturer, the new Ford F-150 The Crimefighter is paying tribute to the original Batmobile and it has been created together with Galpin Auto Sports. The design of the vehicle has been made by Jared Baris, the grandson of well-known car customizer George Barris.
“Back in 1965, George Barris built the iconic first Batmobile using parts he found at a hardware store and the body of a Ford Futura concept car. The Batmobile made Barris a legend among custom car designers and in January 2013 it was auctioned for a cool $4.2 million. In light of the auction, Barris’s grandson, Jared, wanted to create a tribute to his grandfather’s Batmobile. What he designed is a Batmobile, or rather a Bat Truck, for the 21st century”, said the carmaker in its official press release.
The new Ford F-150 The Crimefighter was finished in Tuxedo Black and it has Ferrari Red accents on its body and fins on each side of the bed. The model in question is getting a 5.0 liter V8 engine, bur no performance figures have been released just yet and no pricing details have been made publically.
