Old School Batmobile Sells for $4.2 Million

The original 1960's Batmobile has sold at the Barrett Jackson auction for a very large $4.2 million. Rick Champagne who purchased the iconic vehicle, says "it was a dream come true". There is a 6.4L Ford V8 with automatic transmission, and is suspected the power output is a little under the 300kW V8 Chevy used in the latest Dark Knight movie triology, the tumbler. It originated as a 1955 Licon Futura concept car, then was built completely by hand by the Ghia Body Works in Turin, Italy. Congratulations to Mr. Champagne, who can know officially say, 'I have a Batmobile in my garage!'
