Holy Auction Block, Batman!

On January 19, the original Batmobile featured in the 1960’s Batman television series sold at auction for the first time. George Barris, who designed and built gadget-filled supercar in just three weeks, announced last fall that he was putting the car up for sale. The bidding began at $100,000 and eventually finished at $4.2 million. Watch all the action here.
