“The Batman” Batmobile, 2021 GMC Syclone, 2022 Genesis G70: The Week In Reverse

The latest Batmobile has been fully revealed; the 2021 GMC Syclone is ready to rock; and the 2022 Genesis G70 was spied. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

Matt Reeves, director of the “The Batman,” took to Twitter to reveal the latest Batmobile. With looks akin to a mid-engine retro muscle car, the latest Batmobile is black with red lighting. Production of the movie was interrupted by the coronavirus and it’s now set to reach theaters in October 2021.

Bentley built the final L-Series V-8 engine. After 51 years in production, the iconic 6.75-liter V-8 has been put to rest alongside the Mulsanne. All 36,000 examples of the L-Series V-8 were hand-built, and current versions required 15 hours from start to finish. Bentley will now use more-modern twin-turbo V-8s and W-12s, along with forthcoming plug-in hybrid powertrains, to power its vehicles.
