The Dark Knight Rises in Vietnam: Architecture Student Creates Impressive Batpod Replica


Meet Nguyen Dac Chung, a Vietnamese architecture student who spent six months building his very own Batpod, with the help of a team of friends. Inspired by Christopher Nolan’s iconic film, The Dark Knight, Chung spent over a year planning and researching the design, before embarking on his epic project.

The Batpod is Batman’s two-wheeled vehicle, and Chung’s replica is an impressive 3 meters long, 80cm wide, 90cm high and weighs a hefty 250kg. Constructed mainly of iron, with a steel chassis and plastic armrests and guns, it is powered by an electric engine that can propel it to a top speed of 30km/h. The DIY Batpod is designed with road safety in mind, making it a unique and impressive ride on the streets of Hanoi.


Chung estimates that the entire project cost around 200 million dong ($8,500), which is relatively cheap for such a cool-looking vehicle. Most of that came from the student’s cosplay costume business. He’s been watching The Dark Knight since he was a child, always dreaming of getting his hands on a superhero’s vehicle, and now he’s made that dream a reality.


Chung’s Batpod is a testament to his passion for architecture and superhero movies. As an alumnus of the Hanoi University of Architecture, he was able to apply his technical skills and knowledge to create a functional and unique vehicle. He also worked with a team of friends, demonstrating the power of collaboration and community in achieving a shared goal.


Chung’s story is one of perseverance, creativity, and inspiration. It shows that with dedication and hard work, we can achieve our dreams, no matter how big they may seem. It also highlights the importance of pursuing our passions and hobbies, as they can lead to unexpected opportunities and experiences.
