Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne Drives a 1963 Corvette Stingray in The Batman

We posted photos of Rob sitting in a black corvette on The Batman set the other day and thought you might like learn a little bit more about Bruce Wayne’s vehicle of choice. According to GM Authority

[R]ecent photos of the movie set reveal that Bruce Wayne will be driving a Split-Window 1963 Chevy Corvette – in black, of course.

For those who may be unaware, the Split-Window 1963 Chevy Corvette is one of the most desirable classic Vette models ever produced, exuding rarity, performance, and iconic American styling – just the right combo for a man of wealth and taste like Bruce Wayne.

How rare is this car? Motor Biscuit gives us some insight:

The second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette was launched in 1963. The whole new design included a split rear window for the coupe. The Corvette was only produced for one year with that split rear window. So, the split window 1963 Corvette is rare on its own. But, there is one ultra-rare option that was available for 1963. This Corvette has it. 

By the early 1960s, the original Corvette had grown a little long in the tooth. So, in 1963 a new generation of the sports car was launched. This would become the most distinctive American sports car of the early 1960s. That distinction was due to the boat-tail rear end that housed a split rear window. Many loved the sports car’s design for its rear window treatment. However, it was also a hindrance to rear visibility. So, a lot of people that purchased a Vette, as it was affectionately called, would later buy kits that allowed them to change the split window to a singular window. That makes finding a surviving split rear window car from 1963 rare. But, that is not the ultra-rare option that makes this Vette a gem.

The Corvette Sting Ray Coupe example below has the split window and the factory airconditioning. In fact, it has a lot of the factory options that could have been ordered originally. It is an automatic-equipped vehicle with power windows, power brakes, power steering, tinted windows, whitewall tires, and even the AM/FM radio. This well-optioned sports car is finished in a Daytona Blue exterior, over a dark blue interior. The car has the 327 Turbo-Fire V8. So, it is a cruiser in addition to being able to go, go, go.
