The original Batmobile driven on the 1960s TV series recently sold for $4.6 million. On television, the Batmobile’s technology allowed it to shoot flames, squirt oil and shoot tire slashers, but the car is not actually designed to do any of that. The famous car was created by custom car king George Barris who transformed the 1955 Lincoln Futura into the Batmobile in the mid-1960’s.
This sale is the most recent in a string of iconic TV and movie cars selling for high prices. For instance, a 1964 Aston Martin used in several James Bond films sold for $4.6 million in 2010.
