“Holy used cars, Batman!” The day is finally here when you can own your very own Batmobile. What many of us have dreamed about since childhood is now a very real possibility. Beginning November 30th, all want-to-be Batmen can bid on an almost exact replica Batmobile from the Batman and Batman Returns movies. This is not the Batmobile used in the movies, but instead is an after-market model built according to look just like the vehicle from the movies. Looking at a picture of the vehicle below, it’s certainly hard to notice any visible differences. I would drive it in a heartbeat; I might even be tempted to sport a cape and cowl while I drove around town.
Own The Coolest Looking Vehicle Anywhere
While the Batmobile in the movies had machine guns, a jet engine, aircraft instrumentation, and other crime-fighting gadgets, this replica has been scaled back just a tad. That’s not to say it’s not still an amazing vehicle, though.
According to the auction description, this Batmobile has a Jaguar 3.2 liter automatic engine and includes a rear flame thrower, a smoke release system, an electronic canopy, a hydraulic suspension system that can raise the vehicle 9 inches off the ground, remote ignition, and front and rear cameras. Best of all, perhaps? The Batmobile has low miles and is completely street legal.
If you are interested in owing this crime-fighting vehicle, you should know that it doesn’t come cheap; but when is money a concern when it comes to owning your very own Batmobile? The auction is expecting to raise between $112,763 and $144,981. This number was converted from British to U.S. currency.
Bidders should be aware that the Batmobile does not come with a Batsuit, Batcave, or Robin. Those would all have to be created or found elsewhere. But it does provide pretty much everything else you would need to give wings to your dream of becoming the Dark Knight.
Could you imagine how fun Halloween would be every year?
