Batmobile (Barrett-Jackson)

The original Batmobile from the 1960s’ campy Batman TV series will be auctioned Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale.

There is no official word on how much the customized 1955 Lincoln Futura is expected to sell for — but you’d better save your giant Batcave novelty pennies, because it’s likely to fetch a price only Bruce Wayne himself could afford.
