Lovers of Adam West's campy but classic 1960 television portrayal of DC Comic's Batman will be excited to hear that the original Batmobile is set to go on sale in Scottsdale, Arizona. The car has a history that stretches even before its iconic appearance as the Caped Crusader's classy car, and is expected to fetch an impressive price at auction.

Well-heeled Batman fans have a shot at owning their very own signature piece of the comic book franchise—the original Batmobile from the Caped Crusader's campy 1960s television series has been put up for sale for the very first time.

As noted by io9.com, The distinctively customized 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car by the Ford Motor Company is being auctioned in January by Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Barret-Jackson. The winning bidder can expect to pony up quite a bit more than the $1 auto customizer George Barris reportedly paid for it in the late 1950s.
