Batman's first true Batmobile appeared in the early 1940s and has changed shape and size with different interpretations, evolving in the latest, and perhaps, most impressive of the lot, The Tumbler, seen in The Dark Knight.

That said, there are some pretty impressive Batman vehicles in the latest serving.

This new documentary - unveiled with a special preview at the Comic-Con event in the US - chronicles Batman's rides throughout the years. It features interviews with Batman filmmakers Chris Nolan, Joel Schumacher and Tim Burton as well as a couple of Batmans, including the television series original Adam West and the latest movie incarnation, Christian Bale.
