A street-legal, official Batmobile can be yours for $200,000


It doesn’t matter whether you have thousands of Batman comics and collectibles, or transform your basement into the Batcave, you’re not truly a fan until you own a licensed, roadworthy replica of the Batmobile from the 1966 television series. And it’ll only set you back $200,000.

Offered by Hammacher Schlemmer, the Authentic 1966 Batmobile comes standard “comes standard with a 430-horsepower, 383 Blueprint Crate engine and a Monster TH350 automatic transmission,” which probably means something to someone. While it isn’t equipped with atomic batteries, it does have a blinking Batphone and “a rotating red beacon.” There are also rear parachute packs, which are, alas, empty.

There’s no mention of how many miles per gallon it gets, but that’s probably not a chief concern if you have $200,000 lying around to buy a Batmobile.

well, my b-day’s tomorrow and you can see what i want for it! (not that i’ll GET it, but i can dream, can’t i?)

This looks sweet indeed, but I’m waitin’ for a Spider-Buggy me own self!

It has a Chevy 350 small-block V8, stroked to 383 cubic inches. “Blueprint crate engine” means it’s a brand-new engine built to precise specifications, as opposed to a rebuilt engine taken from a donor car and built within reasonable tolerances. 430hp is pretty healthy for a streetable small-block Chevy. “TH350″ means it’s your basic medium-duty GM 3-speed automatic transmission, sometimes referred to a a “Turbo 350,” so no overdrive.
