Given the choice, these days I’d rather go for a spin in the Tumbler Batmobile from the latest Batman films, but as a kid I was definitely a fan of the Tim Burton version. Sure, he didn’t actually design it, but he definitely helped influenced what has become another iconic iteration in the history of the Batmobile. And if your own infatuation with the Burton Batmobile is still going strong, it’s time to get out that credit card (or credit cards) since one of the Batmobiles used in the original Tim Burton Batman film is now on eBay.
This particular Batmobile is the 5th one built for the film and features a custom chassis powered by a Chevrolet 350. The only door is the sliding cockpit canopy, so it might not be the best choice for taking the family out on a Sunday afternoon drive. But having this thing parked in your driveway will definitely make you the king of your neighborhood. The reserve on the car is $500,000 and a 20% deposit is due within 48 hours of the end of the sale. On top of that, since the car was originally owned by Warner Bros Productions, you’ll have to sign a contract with them and comply with a few other legal terms before taking ownership.
