The annual Gumball 3000 rally attracts all manner of high-end supercars to the week-long motoring spectacle but, in 2016's line-up, nothing stands out quite as much as this real-life Batmobile from Saudia Arabia's Team Galag.

Powered by the 5.2-litre engine of a Lamborghini Gallardo, the so-called Batmobile 2.0 has been built by Swedish car manufacturer Caresto and is based on Batman's wheels in 2015 video game Arkham Knight.

The custom-built behemoth is currently picking its way along the 3,000-mile route from Dublin to Bucharest as part of this year's motorcade.

The 560hp V10 engine sits encased in a full carbon-fibre chassis on top of four 26-inch wheels, with the vehicle boasting a massive 3.4-metre wheelbase.

The car's front and rear suspensions are fully independent while inside drivers can enjoy an interior of soft black leather and gold stitching, with seats, pedals and flooring that light up when the cockpit is opened.
