A captivating GIF history of the Batmobile


The Warner Bros. Animated Series edition? Tim Burton's jet-powered Gothmobile? Adam West's convertible?

The art of arguing for the finest Batmobile requires studied patience and an unswerving opinion on "how much fin is too much fin". Stumble across the ShortList.com team in the local and you'll witness a debate of the highest standards (depending on how many rounds into proceedings we are). 

A man clearly well acquainted with the topic is graphic designer Jordan Piano. His latest creation for Tool Orders sees the Batmobile transition in a captivating gif through its numerous silhouettes, shifting from lean convertible to veritable tank.

Backed by an array of stats on the Dark Knight's ride and screen history, it's the perfect start to brushing up on your own 'mobile debate skills.
