Fans of the legendary 1960s Batman TV series will be excited to see an appearance of the original Batmobile which has gone on sale in Arizona for $5 million.
Got $5 million spare? Anyone crazy enough to splash such astronomical amounts of movie and TV memorabilia might be interested to hear the original Batmobile, from the 1960s TV show, has gone on sale at the Barrett-Jackson Collection Showroom in Arizona.
The car, built in just three weeks by car customiser George Barris based on a concept car developed by Ford, called the Lincoln Futura, was driven by caped crusader Adam West in the legendary show.
Equipped with rockets, oil slicks and other gadgets including an automatic tyre re-inflating system and a Batphone in the show, the car’s big brother – the Lincoln Futura – was fully designed by Ford but never put into production. Barris’ superhero version involved attaching additional bat inspired wings and a new front nose to the vehicle.
