The Cayman Islands might not be home to a fervent car culture, but the islands are the part-time home of fervent gearhead Andreas Ugland. After ten years of work and one hurricane, the Norwegian car buff finally inaugurated the opening of the Cayman Motor Museum that showcases vintage cars from his collection. Two of the highlights are a Batmobile and Batcycle built for and used in the original sixties television series that starred Adam West – before Batman went all gruff-voiced and Gothic.
Cars shipped from Ugland's collection around the world also include one of Elton John's Bentleys, an 1886 Benz, and a copy of the first car to be driven on the island, a 1905 Cadillac. If your tastes run to the less fantastical, fear not, there are plenty of Maseratis, Ferraris, BMWs and even a Renault 5 Turbo to fulfill the automotive senses. The museum is open now, and located on Northwest Point Road, near Boatswain's Beach.
