This is the steering Wheel on the DOJ Batmobile.

Batmobile

The wheel is an indy type. Summit racing has it. The hub is from a motorcycle company. But can anyone identify the control box around the hub. The markings on it might give some clue. Any ideas?

Slysnake,

Looks like a heavily modified Thrustmaster steering wheel turned upside down, cut and bat accessorized accordingly…

Boy! That really looks close. But that's just a game controller, right! Surely that couldn't be used for a real steering wheel.

edit: I think you're really on to it. Real Ferrari F1 wheel looks like that. Now I need to find where to buy one. There is one on sale on ebay but I don't think I'm going to shell out 2k for it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ferrari-F1-Steering-Wheel-F138-Amalgam-Formula-1-Scale-1-1/142985968799?hash=item214aa0bc9f:g:ickAAOSwlBZbXej0:rk:31:pf:0

Also, the one on the car has tell tale video game controller knobs. I wonder if the box of the video controller was removed and put on a real steering wheel.

Slysnake,

That's it for sure ,as it is not CF like a real one! For a movie prop, they will use whatever looks good. Remember it didn't have to drive far... The "hub" looks to be a crankcase slider puck/protector from a CBR600RR (or similar) with an internal wrenching bolt and another small machined part (probably from Rizoma too) to secure it to the steering shaft (or shaft adapter).

...And is that a partial blueprint section of the Millenum Falcon on the bottom cover plate screwed to the steering wheel? You know, there was a Tumbler on the bottom of the Millenium Falcon, so there might be some riprocity going on here...and there is "that" connection.
