I dunno, it kind of looks to me like the last couple of Batmobiles, but it's been awhile since I paid attention to the Batman movies. This one purports to be the latest version of the "Tumbler," that thing that doesn't even really look like a car, and it'll star in the upcoming installment, "The Dark Knight Rises." What do you think? Lots of footage of it on location below the jump, via Jalopnik.

It's cool to have the V6 Accord right on the heels of the V6 TSX. Usually there's a glaring contrast between the Honda and its nearest Acura equivalent, but so far the Accord feels like really solid, nicely-appointed and well-set-up car. Stay tuned for the full review!

Apparently his wife had complications during the birth of their first child, so when contractions started at week 38, David Weber didn't mess around. He wanted to get his wife to the hospital as quickly as possible for a c-section, and so he drove fast, hitting 105 mph on "lightly trafficked roads" near their home in Manitoba, Canada. He was pulled over not once but twice. The first time he got a $1,000 speeding ticket and a 15 minute delay. The second time the police officer refused to let him continue and instead called an ambulance (another 15 minute delay). Luckily they finally made it to the hospital in time for a safe delivery of a healthy baby. But now, despite a doctor's testimony on his behalf, David is facing big fines and a suspended license. So what do you think? Was he right to speed to the hospital? Or should he have called an ambulance at the start? Via AOL Autos

I think I've finally managed to out-smug my Seattle neighbors. Parked directly in front of a garage that contains my old gas-guzzling Mopar is the new Prius Plug-In Hybrid. If you failed to notice the little plug on the front driver's side fender, you'll definitely get the message from the big decal on the side. I have one of just 160 or so they are using in testing this year. They will start showing up in dealerships early next year. A few details on the plug-in program after the jump, and stay tuned for a full report.

A few years ago RideLust put together a list of the top 50 movie cars of all time. My favorite is this second generation Camaro from The Gumball Rally. What's your favorite?

Speaking of boat-tail Rivieras, my official favorite car of the 2007 SEMA show has hit eBay. It's been de-donked and now rolls on 22" wire wheels, and at least the sellers aren't being overly optimistic about what an extensively messed-with show car will go for. I wouldn't be surprised if it got bid up over $10K before the auction end, but not much over. What do you think? Well find out soon. Check out the auction!

This guy put together a compilation series of his dad racing his C2 Corvette in Japan. The footage is Corvette-heavy, and there's a ton of other cool old cars involved as well. Video below the jump!

Back in 1950 Volkswagen built a stripped down utilitarian vehicle that, unbeknownst to them, would turn into an icon. These vehicles maximized the use of interior space and utilized a 25 hp rear mounted flat-four engine for power that motivated them to a top speed of, get this… 65 mph. The vehicle I speak of is of course the fabled Volkswagen Bus and over the years these family haulers have turned into some of the greatest collectibles around. When released their styling was neither controversial nor ground breaking, in fact it was actually sort of mundane. However during the late 1960′s the VW Bus not only gained a following, but a resurgence in popularity. Since then they’ve become one of the most sought after vehicles with collectors snapping them up every chance they get. The following video is part of the Depth of Speed collection and showcases one owners passion for a his cherry little red wagon.
