Great if you've got some money to burn.

Batman sucks now, thanks to Ben Affleck's mopey take on it—you doing okay, bud? But at least we've got this Batmobile-esque SUV to ogle.

Besides looking like an everyday version of the Batmobile Christian Bale (a.k.a the Good Batman) drove around, the new Karlmann King is the most expensive SUV to ever hit the market. Only a handful of models are for sale, if you've got a spare million or two laying around.

Designed by Chinese firm IAT Automobile Technology, who employed a team of 1,800 people in Europe to bring it to life, the Karlmann King is an SUV built on a Ford F-550 platform with a $2 million price tag—more if you want to customize it. It weighs 4,500 kilograms—6,000 if you get the armored version—and is powered by a gigantic 6.8-liter V10 engine.

The outside of this SUV is built with carbon fiber and steel (or bulletproof material) that gives it a sleek urban army vibe. The inside, however, isn't quite so rugged. With a TV, espresso machine, mood lighting, gaming console, and champagne fridge, it's got the same amenities as a tricked out stretch limo.

The Karlmann King is a great ride for any rich asshole with an eye for luxury and a penchant for extreme safety. The downside: It only goes 87 mph. Not quite up to the task of saving Gotham.
