    SANT'AGATA BOLOGNESE, Italy — Iron Man's impressive garage may include the stunning Audi R8, but that superhero may be one-upped by Batman, who drives the 640-horsepower Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 in the upcoming summer blockbuster The Dark Knight.

    Anyone who has seen Iron Man, now playing in theaters, is undoubtedly thrilled by the trailer for The Dark Knight, which features a prominent reference to the Lamborghini.

    Actor Michael Caine, playing Alfred the butler, in the Batman sequel, asks billionaire Bruce Wayne, "Will you be wanting the Batmobile, sir?" The Caped Crusader's alter ego replies: "No."

    "The Lamborghini, then," Caine responds. "Much more subtle."

    Lamborghini issued a statement about the Lambo's appearance in The Dark Knight late Tuesday. "The Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 is the natural choice for Bruce Wayne's other car," said Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "Lamborghini is proud to be associated with one of the greatest movie franchises in history, especially co-starring with the night-bound Batmobile."

    The Dark Knight will hit theaters on July 18.

  4. A Black Enzo fits Batman or Bruce Wayne a lot better than an LP640.
     
  5. No
     
  6. Ugh, quit it.
     
  7. Holy shit, for once I agree

    Edit: I was going to say enzo or Reventon though

  9. Murciélago means Bat in spanish. It's just perfect for Batman.
     
  10. Uhm, definitely not!
     
  11. Definitely, YES! That or an SLR fit well, though the SLR is a little too close to already being a Batmobile.
     
  12. He's just trying to warn us, Batman will eventually want inhouse developed and manufactured parts...you can be a fanboi just dont be so damn pathetic.

    LP640 or Rebenton are the only choices, the Maybach Exelero too but thats more overkill than even a Reventon.
     
  13. They were considering an SLR, but they deemed it too outrageous, I think an M1, if they can find on in Pristine condition, would be awesome
     
  14. I think a car named bat works a bit better than any ferrari for being batmans car.
     
  15.  
  16. also in the last batman there was it, or i'm wrong?
     
  17. Batman is made using indonesian parts
     
  18. i think he had a murci roadster for about 10 seconds before giving it away
     
  19. dont you just wanna see batman roll up to some beautiful women and scramble to roll down his windows MANUALY?! smooth.
     
  20. yeah true, btw also his batmobile had lambo influence IMO
     
  21. needs a black reventon
     
  22. dark gray murcie roadster with black interior and orange drivers seat.

    also, he had two girls sitting on top of each other in the passenger seat.
     
  23. lol
     
  24. a lp640 which can trasform itself into a reventon with a button would be awesome.
     
  25. A FNAF which would transform itself into a ferret with a button would be even more awesome.
