If you have a lot of money like Bruce Wayne, you can afford to be Batman too. Thats right, you can drop your kid off at school in a Batmobile. This exotic car will make the real Batman jealous, plus your kid will probably think you’re a better real life superhero. Isn’t that just heart warming? Not to go all Oprah on you but the SVS Codatronca TS luxury car is a seriously sweet car that looks like it came straight from Gotham City.
Ercole Spada is the ex-Zagato Design Chief with a knack for designing light weight, aerodynamic car classics like the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, the 1962 Alfa Romeo 2600 SZ, and the 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ. Now Spada has revived his design philosophy through SpadaConcept which is his Italian design studio, with son Paolo Spada (former designer at Smart and Honda). Their first model likened to an updated, Italian take on the Batmobile, is called the SVS Codatronca TS or "truncated tail, turismo sportivo." The SpadaConcept company’s focus is on “functional design”, which, according to Ercole Spada, means to express functionality of an object through its shape. Thus, the first Spada Vetture Sport has an undeniably avant-garde shape, it is a car that is both bold and daring.
The cockpit is light and airy with a technological air-conditioner system, a rear camera keeps the back view visable at all times and a clock designed by Meccanicheveloci with automatic recharge, is just another taste of fine Italian craftmenship. For $432K you can own this fierce, Italian retro-twist on a classic American comic-book hero.
