Here's the description
Not sure of the bolded statement.

NEW!!! Featuring the new High Quality Detail 1/35 BATMAN BEGINS Batmobile AKA "Tumbler" Model Kit from Bandai! This radical design was created with total functionality and performance in mind. Measures 131 mm in length. The headlights on the model actually light up!

The new Batmobile, which began life as a Wayne Industries military prototype called The Tumbler, is 2.5 tons, 15 feet long, and has a 350-cubic-inch Chevy engine capable of 500 horsepower. It is equipped with front-firing machine guns, a landing hook and, as you can see, 4 rear super swamper tires.

It has to get up to 220 mph to get airborne, but then it can jump 20, 30, maybe 40 feet. To perform this gravity-defying act, the Batmobile utilizes its jet engine and vector controls. The metal things on the back are like "wings" that give it enough lift once it jumps.

Built from the ground up; it has a 5.7 liter, 350 curbic inch, 500 horsepower engine with about 400 pounds of torque. Uses regular gas but can only get a single digit miles per gallon.

The four huge back tires are monster truck tires while the front ones are race car tires. It has a fighter cockpit with the hatch above it that slides up and down to give access.

And the cannons on the front give Batman the ability to get out of stickly situations. But not to kill people, more like blowing a wall out of the way to jump away from a trap like he does in the movie.

The only thing I see wrong with this model (so far ) is the antennas on the ends of the wings are molded plastic and are way too thick. I would cut these off and make my own.
