Caresto Transforms A Lamborghini Into The Menacing Arkham Car

Arkham Car

Believe it or not, the ridiculously good-looking¬†Arkham Car you see right now is actually a Lamborghini at its heart. Imagined¬†by the people at Caresto, a Swedish car and body manufacturer and design studio, this thing has been created for the¬†2016 Gumball 3000 event, although some of us might think about the¬† ‚ÄėArkham Knight‚Äô video game the second we get a glance of it.

The original Lamborghini has been stripped down, redesigned and re-built with full functionality in mind, featuring now a jaw dropping carbon fiber body, crafted thanks to full scale molds, that were milled out of CAD drawings, plus a rigid tubular frame that provides an incredible handling, a menacing vibe and definitely some extra safety.

Caresto went on to add a fully independent front and rear suspension,¬†with double wishbones connected to the coil over shock absorbers, to make sure this thing drives smoothly in any situation.¬†At the front, a specifically-designed aluminum push rod setup is part of the new setup as well, just in case you’ve thought that suspension wasn’t enough.

If you take a look¬†under the hood, you’ll notice¬†the ‘standard’ V10 engine from¬†Lamborghini still powers up this outrageous project, allowing it to benefit from a cool 560 hp.¬†Riding on massive 26-inch wheels, with a wicked design, the Arkham has been also equipped with a paddle shifting gearbox¬†and¬†ABS supported 8-pot Brembo calipers at the front and 6-pot calipers in the back for those¬†massive brake discs.

On the inside,¬†the driver and one lucky passenger will experience a mix of¬†black soft leather and¬†eye-catching¬†golden stitching, complemented by LED lighting,¬†air conditioning, power steering and a great sound system. I wonder what Batman listens to when he’s hunting down the Joker with this thing.

Victor has always been a big fan of cars, which is why he’s so proud to call himself a genuine petrolhead these days. His love actually stemmed from his father, who was an automotive engineer. Today, he loves to write down everything that comes to mind, car-related or not, and when he really gets down to it, he pretty much becomes one with his laptop.
