"Not a Product Mobile" Part 2: The Onstar Batmobile

The next entry in our "NAPM" series is on the coolest superhero ride in history. Back before Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale reinvented the Dark Knight for the big screen, the previous incarnation had a car equipped with Onstar to aid in various crime fighting capacities.

Onstar took the Batmobile on the road to car shows to advertise the service and give people an up close and personal look at the many bat-gadgets that came standard with the suped-up super car.

Once the promotion was over the Batmobile went wherever it is that movie cars go. If you're luck you may still see one from this era from time to time at one of the better custom auto shows .

For now, YouTube will have to suffice when it comes to seeing the Onstar aided Batmobile busting the bad guys.
