Original Batmobile sells for $4.6 million

From WENN.com

The iconic black car, customised from a 1955 Lincoln Futura, was purchased by life-long Batman fan Rick Champagne at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Arizona on Saturday (19Jan13).

Shortly after winning the auction, Champagne told Reuters, ""I really liked Batman growing up and I came here with the intention of buying the car. Sure enough, I was able to buy it. That was a dream come true.""

The caped crusader's two-seater, which featured futuristic gadgets such as lasers in the show, was purchased by car customiser George Barris in 1965.

He spent $15,000 (£9,375) transforming the vehicle in 15 days for the show, and has owned it ever since.
