Warner Bros. wheels out its wild Batmobile at this week's Vegas Licensing Expo

Warner Bros. has cruised into the Licensing Expo 2015 in Las Vegas to show off its ultimate toy from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.   Besides the brutish Batmobile parked center stage, the studio also proudly displayed a trio of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman costumes encased in glass to flocks of fans, financiers, marketing gurus, filmmakers and the press.

This boldly redesigned iteration of the Batmobile Ben Affleck will be piloting in the film boasts a more radical, military stealth look than the bridge-jumping Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's trailblazing Dark Knight Trilogy, and it's hard to miss the lethal snouts of twin machine guns on the nose.

Here's the official vehicle spec sheet accompanying the promotional unveiling:

Single-handedly designed and fabricated in near complete seclusion by The Batman, this infamous pursuit and capture vehicle has earned its reputation as the apex predator on the mean streets of Gotham City. Over powered with an unmatched hybrid of prototype military and civilian performance technologies, this top machine has been estimated to reach speeds of up to 205 MPH. The Batmobile’s imposing defense capabilities, supported by stolen Wayne Industries technologies, have been integrated with the latest in covert military grade armaments, stealth and active protection systems.
