’Mk1’ Batmobile up for auction
It seems that Batmobiles – or at least cars with Batman’s logo on them – have come out in droves recently. But while others are rather poor imitations of anything Batman would really drive, there are others that look remarkably the same as the ones the Caped Crusader has driven. This particular ‘Mk1’ Batmobile fits the latter to a tee, and best of all, it’s for sale.
Built using a 1973 Lincoln Continental Town Car – as opposed to the modified Lincoln Futuras that was used in the 1060s TV show ‘Batman’ – this particular Batmobile looks exactly like the ones Adam West drove as Batman in the show. Heck, this car has even gone on a ton of promotional events with West even driving the car himself on some occasions.
The car is being sold at eBay and while the initial auction has ended without the reseved price being met, the car is expected to be open for bids again soon with an expected price of around $60,000 - $120,000. If you’re the lucky one who ends up bagging this Batmobile, it actually comes with a valid tax and MOT, meaning that this car is completely road legal and you can take out for a drive anywhere.
Just make sure you don’t get mistaken for Batman himself.
