The Batmobile (2016) is a battle-car released on March 8, 2016,[4] which could only be obtained from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice DLC pack. It is not compatible with most decals, wheels, rocket boosts, trails, or anything else other than the items in the DLC pack that go with it. It can only have its paint color and goal explosion changed freely.

It was originally named simply "Batmobile" but its name was changed due to another Batmobile available on March 5, 2018.

Although not as popular as other Battle-Cars used in the Rocket League Championship Series, it has been favored some by pro-level players.[5]

Quote_icon  As of Patch v1.70, all Premium DLC Packs will no longer be available for purchase. If you already own any items from the DLC Packs, you will still have those items in your inventory. Items from Premium DLC Packs may return for individual sale in the Item Shop at a later date.[6]

Trivia

  • The in-game files for Batmobile (2016) refer to it as "DarkCar".[9]
  • When the Batmobile is demolished by another Battle-Car, the Batman logo encircles the "BOOM!" effect.
    • This is one of two cars to have a custom demolition effect, with the other being the DeLorean Time Machine.
  • In Rumble matches, the Batmobile's plunger is black.
  • The Batmobile was implemented as a Plank type, reverted back to the pre-Anniversary Update due to the community feedback as of Patch v1.37,[10] then switched back to Plank as of Patch v1.56.
