A street-legal Batmobile is hitting a UK auction block Nov. 30, and who wouldn't want to drive that?
Originally used in 1989's "Batman Returns," the Batmobile is expected to draw £70,000-£90,000 (that's $113,000-$145,000 in US dollars). Michael Keaton played Batman at the time and the vehicle earned the nickname, "The Keaton-mobile."
The car was originally built on a Chevrolet Impala frame and could go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds (faster than those brand new Teslas and potentially less of a fire hazard).
Most of the gadgets still work: The exhaust after burner (read: flame thrower) is fully functional -- and quite dramatic -- but can only run for about 15 seconds because of the amount of fuel consumed.
"It was created to be the ultimate in automotive styling, engineering and design with everything on this supercar handcrafted with all the latest in space-age materials, alloys and parts," reads the auction page.
What else does it have?
- There's hydraulic suspension that lifts the car an extra 9" off the ground.
- It has a mechanism that releases a poof of smoke.
- Remote start ignition (While it's standard now, that's a rarity for a 1989 vehicle.)
- Front and rear cameras
And, it's got very low mileage because it's mostly been transported from venue to venue.
But the big selling point, according to the auction site, is the best: "Chicks love the car."
Good luck, if you bid on this bad boy. And don't forget to pick me up for a ride.
