The Original Batmobile Is for Sale

The original Batmobile from the 1966-68 television series began as a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car. It sat in the lot of George Barris, a car customizer, until television producers needed a Batmobile on very short notice:

Batman producer William Dozier called needing a Batmobile. He gave Barris 15 days and $15,000 to build it and so he did. The Futura’s two-seater design and unique 50s futurist winged look made it the perfect car to customize into Batman and Robin’s main ride. A few metal modifications, engine boosts, racing wheels exposed by opened wheel wells, Batgadget attachments and a gloss black paint job with glow-orange red trim later, history burst out of the Batcave.

If you have enough money, it can be yours. The Batmobile will be sold at auction at a car show in Scottsdale, Arizona in January.
