It's no Joker: Original Batmobile is for sale
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - It’s no Joker: Batman’s car is for sale.
The original 1966 Batmobile is expected to go under the hammer on Jan 19, the Barrett-Jackson auto auction house said on Thursday.
The iconic vehicle, which was featured in the Batman TV series as well as the movie adaptation starring Adam West, is capable of a quick 180-degree “bat-turn”, thanks to two rear-mounted parachutes, the auctioneers said.
“The 1966 Batmobile by George Barris is one of the most famous Hollywood cars in history and it has become a true icon that has been carried from generation to generation of Batmobiles to follow,” Craig Jackson, chairman and chief executive of Barrett-Jackson, said in a statement.
