Every generation, a new Batmobile is unveiled to the public with mixed reactions, but the Batman Alive Batmobile should satisfy both fans of the iconic superhero as well as futurist car enthusiasts.

The Batman Alive Batmobile was designed by Gordon Murray for the upcoming Batman stage production, but many will be surprised to learn that it's actually a functioning vehicle. Murray incorporated elements of Formula One racing cars into the physical design of the crime-fighting car, in addition to making the body out of "breathable" carbon fiber. Eco-minded individuals will also be glad to learn that this new Batmobile is powered by hydrogen-fuel cells.

Good for the environment and a sweet looking ride? You have me sold -- though you pretty much had me at the mention of Batman.
