The Batmobile from the 1960s television show is set for the auction block this weekend


 The one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura (above)concept car was originally 
created by a design team at Ford Motor Co.'s Lincoln styling department.

 "Batman," which starred Adam West and Burt Ward.

The iconic Batmobile from the 1960s television show is set for the auction block this weekend. The midnight-black and fluorescent-red-pinstriped car that Adam West's Batman used to battle villains in Gotham will be up for grabs Saturday at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz. There is a reserve price for the car, but neither the auction house nor the car owner, famed car customizer George Barris, would confirm the lowest dollar amount they would accept. But auction organizers have indicated it's in the multimillion-dollar range.
