Introducing The New LEGO Batmobile From Chevrolet

1

Chevrolet, along with students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and FIRST LEGO League, unveiled its life-size LEGO Batmobile today at the North American International Auto Show.

Measuring 17-feet long and featuring exclusive stud shooters, the LEGO Batmobile from Chevrolet was designed to strike fear in the heart of any villain. The vehicle was inspired by Batman’s Speedwagon featured in “The LEGO Batman Movie,” which hits U.S. theaters on Feb. 10.

In this exciting new animated LEGO adventure, Batman, DC’s iconic Super Hero who famously prefers to work alone, must learn to cooperate and connect with others to save Gotham City from The Joker.

“To work on the LEGO Batmobile with Warner Bros. is an absolute thrill for us at Chevy,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Many of the themes in ‘The LEGO Batman Movie,’ like imagination, family and community, align perfectly with our Chevy brand values and add to the value of the partnership.”
