original-batmobileLOS ANGELES: The original 1966 Batmobile is expected to go under the hammer on January 19, the Barrett-Jackson auto auction house said Thursday.

 

The iconic vehicle, which was featured in the Batman TV series as well as the movie adaptation starring Adam West, is capable of a quick 180-degree "bat-turn" thanks to two rear-mounted parachutes, the auctioneers said.

 

"The 1966 Batmobile by George Barris is one of the most famous Hollywood cars in history and it has become a true icon that has been carried from generation to generation of Batmobiles to follow," Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, said in a statement.

 

"This vehicle not only marks the significant Bat logo that sits on the middle of its door, but a time in television history where they defied the odds of making a car the real star of the show."

 

The Batmobile, a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car adapted by customizer Barris, features the Batphone, a Bat Eye Switch, Bat Smoke "and many other Bat gadgets," according to Barrett-Jackson.

 

The auction will take place in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Jackson has reportedly said it could fetch millions of dollars.
