Here's an online translation of the article that was posted in Swedish.
It's all gibberish translation but you can kind of make out that WB first gave him 'No' when he wanted help(?) but finally gave(?) in.

– and hope that skdisarna frn film am arriving Here is Leif Tanner and his egen Batmobil – a precise copy frn film. Than s long only made in plastic toad. But in closed of a hiding ska Batmobilen product a packed house körklar – one really muskelpaket p over 1000 horsepower.
And d am thinking he bidder in Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson as am acting Batman respect Joker in film ”Batman” to pressvisningen in Stockholm. Project Batmobil was bending already for tens substitute sedan d Leif sg auto in film.
He taken consort with Warner Brothers but was getting nos to that build. substitute behind substitute continued Leif that nag at but Warner Brooch deny. – One day was getting self enough and ring up Warner Brooch and said now am thinking self build auto änd. And it was welfare luck that he nots gave themselves , today is Warner Brooch mäkta overawe over his Batmobil and am helping now to with mnga circumstances.
Ska avgjutas next week Next week am arriving the that avgjutas and thereafter manner motor in. IN closed of a hiding ska the product a packed house körklar. Motor am arriving frn a Lincoln Continental and is p 700 horsepower and to motor at the back p auto had Leif committee over a right jetmotor frn a helicopter p 338 delivery is urgent. – I have always adored prompt , leaky motor and this built is a dream as gr in fulfilment says Leif Tanner. But Batmobilen had cost nots only a lot of money devoid also very trouble and scramble.
Hittills had Leif and his coworker depositing down over arbetstimmar and than is auto lngt ifrn clear. About 6000 hour – The is clearly that the is been the but sometimes have I wherein close that crack here down garage. About 6000 hour am counting wes with entrance wes is weather.
Circa 7,5 millions chronology am arriving the six metre lnga and 2,2 tone tongue vrlket that cost. The main costs am laying in that heal auto is made of coal and fibreglass.
But also all specialdetaljer s as röststyrning eldflammor and maskingevär am costing a lot of money. Tips sedan Leif each three substitute stale d his brother arrived home with a Batmanmask , has he wherein crazies in Batman. IN his superb Batmansamling ingr all ifrn suit to flipperspel.
IN tonren forgot he away Batman and was hoping p the musical banana instead. Until when film arrived 1989. Register with Vägverket – D stayed self wholly sld again.
Batman give the verklighetsflykt as self am believing that mnga folk shall had. Currently am working Leif with that ragged auto record with Vägverket for that kunna wheel the p scales. – Wes am not arriving that wheel p dagtid – d am becoming the welfare pandemonium in the traffic if the suddenly am adoring up a Batmobil p Strandvägen wide 16- terms d all ska home frn was working. – But tonight am thinking self wheel the and d am arriving self certainly had Batmankostymen p me , laugh Leif.

Translation.........that car has got to be about the best 89 I've ever seen
hand sculpted or not!

Nitro....ya the 89's cool but I like the 66 just as much, all things being equal I don't have a favorite...yet...maybe the answer's in the eye of the tiger!

DH and I discussed this car last night. I spoke with the owner several ago and he sent me pictures of the mock up. I would have to say from what I have seen of the car it is hand built. Judging from the photographs he used the AMT model for comparison, everything that is on the model is on his car. From the trunk lid to the canopy everything is mocked up just as the model. He most likely used a cad machine to map out all the features of the car. As far as a hand built car, this is the best seen to date. I noticed that the gas caps are different; I think that his are more astatically pleasing than the originals.

I'm partial to the Cobra gas caps myself....like the car they're round, fat,
muscular and obnoxiously huge.
His 'sweeping curve' over rear wheel quarters is perfect...defines that area
and gives it a muscled look too.
