Batmobile for sale!

Christmas shopping has begun and, for that Dark Knight fan in your life, may I suggest an authentic Batmobile from “Batman”? Yes, a real-deal Batmobile that was used in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) sequel, when Michael Keaton was Bruce Wayne and Gotham City was an Art Deco dream. Classic Auto Mall is offering this part of cinematic history for $1,500,000. That is a steep cost for any holiday gift, but can you really put a value on making a Batman fan’s life complete?


“The car was designed by conceptual illustrator Julian Caldow and built by the John Evans special effects team at Pinewood studios in England,” the listing states. “Referred to as a prop car, it only has an electric motor. After its movie run, it wound up at New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure, where it was used as a prop for the Batman Returns ride, which by the way was a thriller in itself as a suspended looping and twisting roller coaster. After its run there, it was purchased by our consigner, who is an avid movie car collector. ZAP!”
