Will The #1 Batmobile Sell For A Whopping $4.6 Million?

That's more than a Lamborghini Veneno.

The 1966 #1 Batmobile, the most iconic and widely recognized vehicle in entertainment history, has now appeared for sale without a list price at Barret-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. The car was designed and built by George Barris and is based on a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car that he initially purchased from the Ford Motor Company for just $1. The $1 Lincoln concept vehicle, which was transformed into the #1 Batmobile, has a V8 engine and a 3-speed automatic transmission.

The car will always be remembered as the original that Batman and Robin drove in the hit television series from the 1960s. The famous vehicle also made appearances on various moviesets, at car shows, and in museums. This marks the first time that theoriginal Batmobile has been put up for sale since it left George Barris’ carcollection in 2013 and was sold at auction for an astounding $4.62 million. Although there's no telling what the Batmobile could sell for this time around, for wealthycar collectors this could represent a big opportunity to own a part of autohistory.
