The Batmobile sells for $4.6 million at an auction.
How much would you pay to have your very own Batmobile? Well the official Batmobile which appeared in the 1960s Batman Television series sold for a shocking $4.6 million.
The vehicle was sold at Barrett Jackson's annual auction near Scottsdale, Arizona. It was originally a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car that was painted pearl white prior to all of the radical body work.
Car customizer George Barris created the Batmobile after he bought the original car for $1 and had owned it up until the recent sale. The auction housed tons of bidders who gathered around the eccentric Batmobile.
Rick Champagne, the owner of a logistics company was declared the lucky buyer. The car comes with a Batphone, smoke and two rear-mounted parachutes which allow for rapid turning capabilities.
In another success story, a 1949 Buick Roadmaster convertible car that was seen in the movie ‘Rain Man’ sold at an auction.
The car was expected to sell for more than $80,000 but when the auctionrolled around on December 14th, an eager buyer paid a whopping $170,500.
