Equipped with such gadgets as the Bat rocket launcher, the Bat laser and the emergency Bat turn lever, the vehicle got an estimated one-half mile per gallon in highway driving and negative mileage in the city.

The Caped Crusader will now drive a Ford Fiesta. Robin was laid off and replaced with an immigrant from Honduras.
