He Spent 2 Years Building a Real-Life Batmobile. He’s Not Using It to Fight Villains.


Zac Mihajlovic spent two years constructing an insanely realistic street-legal Batmobile.

The 29-year-old from Camden, Australia, could have cashed his project in for big bucks, according to the YouTube video below. Instead, he cruises around dressed as Batman, visiting children with terminal illnesses.

With the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s help, in the last two  years, Mihajlovic has visited about 40 children.
