Original Batmobile to go on auction

  • The original car from the Batman television series is to be auctioned and likely to fetch a seven-figure sum, auctioneers Barrett-Jackson said on Thursday.

    The two-seater car was featured in the show starring Adam West that aired from 1966 to 1968.

    The one-off 1955 Lincoln Futura was a hand-built concept car developed by Ford.

    It was bought in 1965 for $1 by owner George Barris, who customized the 19-foot vehicle for the TV series.

    The car will be auctioned on January 19 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
