A taste of Hollywood to feature at Clipsal 500 Adelaide
Tribute cars from Hollywood classics, including Batman and Dukes of Hazzard, will star alongside V8's and Stadium Super Trucks at next year's Clipsal 500 Adelaide.
Tourism Minister Leon Bignell said the Cars of the Screen exhibition featured movie and television favourites, along with other unique and rare vehicles.
"The collection of more than 30 cars has been faithfully recreated with incredible detail. The main draw card is a replica of the 1989 Batmobile", Mr Bignell said.
"The Cars of the Screen display is sure to entertain people of all ages - from adults like me who grew up watching these movies, to kids in awe of these impressive machines.
"Kids aged 12 and under receive free entry at the Clipsal 500 of course, so it becomes a really affordable option for families and a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a collection of this magnitude assemebled in Adelaide."
Owner of the tribute 1989 Batmobiloe, Zac Mihajlovic, said he spent two years meticulously building the car with help from his grandfather and friend.
To create the replica, pieces from the original car were purchased and other parts had to be built from scratch.
Althought the vehicle doesnt have the weapons the car has in the 1989 blockbuster, Mr Mihajlovic has put in a huge effort to create a car very similar to the original driven by one of hi favourite superheroes.
The Cars of the Screen display, sponsored by Westfield, is in addition to other off-track announcement for the event, headlined by international Grammy award winning artist Rob Thomas, and the new Enduro-X event, which will see the world's best Enduro riders compete in this extreme sport.
Tickets to the 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide are on sale now.
