The original Batmobile from the 1960s television series has sold at auction for $4.2 million (Dh15.4 million)
A spokeswoman for the Barrett-Jackson Auction Co in Scottsdale, Arizona, says the winning bidder has not been disclosed following Saturday’s auction.
The 19-foot-long (5.7 metres) black, bubble-topped car was used in the ‘Batman’ TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.
The car’s owner — famed auto customiser George Barris, of Los Angeles — transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into the sleek crime-fighting machine. On the show it boasted lasers and a ‘Batphone’ and could lay down smoke screens and oil slicks.
Barris’ publicist says his client is pleased with the auction result.
