    The newer car won the race, then they refilmed it for a more appealing outcome.

    That's my guess based on the fact that the cars are the wrong way round in the slow motion cam.

    depends which side of the road the camera was one Blib.
    But you could see they werent really dragracing by the way the two cars stayed together.. then the newer car was in front, then the older, the the newer again.. kept going like that

    If the camera was on the other side of the road, the cars would have approached from the left. You're right of course, they weren't racing. And they still couldn't manage to rig the result! :p

    Not that I'm complaining of course...

    The drag race was totally rigged, I knew that before posting this. It's just the "Best Drag Race Ever" because it features two different generation Batmobiles :D

    You mean using the real life cars, or the cars as described in the lore?

    The (real life) older car was clearly lighter and more powerful. Power/weight counts for a lot in a quarter-mile drag.

    If I remember the specs correctly the older car would probably win a short run race as it's lighter, and has more horsepower, but the '89 would win a long race as it's top speed is 20mph faster. Mind you, from what I remember from the behind the scenes reel for the '89 film, the body would shake like crazy whenever they got the car above 80mph. How that would effect the race though.. tough one.

    You'd be looking at a pretty long drag for that top speed to come into play imo.
