Chicago man creates 'Batmobile' from scratch

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (CNN) -- If you think superhero cars are just for superhero movies, think again!

A Chicago man has been building his very own version of a Batmobile from scratch.

Brian Hendler calls it the "Big Black Car." Hendler has been working on it for four years in his garage. 

It doesn't just look cool, it runs great and can pivot in place for a quick exit. 

"We've got a 72 V-12 in the front. We have a Boeing 502 jet engine in the back," explained Hendler. 

Hendler doesn't plan to drive the car much. Instead, he wants to take it to charity events to help bring in donations for good causes.
