Group of friends build $1.6 million Batman Tumbler replica

An anonymous group of Gumball 3000 competitors from Saudi Arabia known as Team Galag worked together to make their very own Batmobile a la Christopher Nolan's Tumbler. This labor of love cost a whopping $1.6 million to make, but rally participants are among the wealthiest folks around, so it probably didn't set them back too much.

Team Galag will bring their street legal Tumbler to the 2013 Gumball event, which kicks off in Copenhagen on May 19. Although there are no prizes for finishing first, the 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 400-horsepower will surely be a force to reckon with during the prestigious 3,000-mile road trip.

Team Galag's motto is "We don't drive fast, we fly low." So there you have it. At the very least they will be zipping around Europe in top style. You can see the Bat Tumbler replica in all of its glory in the gallery below.
