Next months, we will follow Team Galag in their process of building their TG1 and their Tumbler. We all know the Tumbler from the Batman movies. But why and how are they going to build this car? We will follow them! To build a Tumbler or not to build a Tumbler? That is the question.
You have to understand why we wanted to build the Tumbler. Obviously one reason is that we can. Secondly, it's fun.
One of our team members is crazy about all things Dark Knight, and it's been an idea of his to build a Tumbler for a while now. So we thought why not go one step further and do it in time for this year's Gumball.
So we discussed the idea with the people building our cars and it just happened that they've wanted to build one for a while now. When ideas line up like that, it can be very magical. Crazy, but magical.
Obviously, the Tumbler has been built before. We've all seen the movies and the pictures. Hell, we've all seen footage of it doing laps on a race track. The tricky part however was to build one that would last 3000 miles and be road legal without losing it's, well, awesomeness!
Since we couldn't get the original blue prints, we did a little digging and found tidbits here and there on what the assembly of a Tumbler requires but the guys at Parker Brothers Concepts had to do the heavy lifting and they had to fill up the gaps. They also had to make sure that it was road legal. Not an easy task!
Throughout this update you'll find images of what we found during our search. But the rest will have to wait until the big reveal in Copenhagen.
