The Original Batmobile is For Sale!

Rare opportunity! The iconic vehicle will be auctioned on January 19, 2013.

If you’ve ever wanted to own the Batmobile, now’s your chance.

The original Batmobile from the 1966-1968 live action Batman TV series will be auctioned on January 19, 2013 at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz.

This is one of the most iconic of all Batmobiles that actually began life as a Ford concept car called the Lincoln Futura (which had been built in 1955). It was transformed from a Futura into the crime fighters vehicle by George Barris – the car’s owner.

Yes, this is the actual vehicle as used in the TV show that starred Adam West as Batman.

How much can you expect to pay? I have no idea. The auction house has refused to say what they expect to get for it. But you can expect it won’t go cheap.
