This is the ultimate Batman collectible. An Authentic 1966 Batmobile. How accurate is it? Well, it is so accurate that it requires almost a year to complete. It is an officially licensed, roadworthy replica of the Batmobile featured in the 1960s TV show.

This Batmobile is built on a custom Lincoln chassis, with a 430-horsepower, 383 Blueprint Crate engine and a Monster TH350 automatic transmission. It has a rear-facing propane tank that creates the afterburner effect and the vehicle’s cockpit has a blinking Batphone, switch-operated electric actuators that open the hood and trunk, and a rotating red beacon to alert citizens while in pursuit of criminals.

That’s not all. It has a glowing detect-a-scope screen, a Batbeam ray that rises from a hood-mounted antenna, and empty rear parachute packs. The vehicle’s exterior is just as impressive with the bubble-canopy windshields and chrome “rocket” tubes behind the rear windshield. It can be yours for $200,000 from Hammacher Schlemmer.
