Batmobile replica up for sale at auctionJanuary 10th, 2009 - 4:59 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 10 (ANI): An imitation of Batmobile, which was used in the 1960s Batman TV series, is up for grabs at an auction.
The personal car of the caped crusader comes with a dashboard TV, rear parachute pod and Batphone.
It is mechanically sound, and also has a valid MoT certificate and registration document, making it legal to drive on the road.
The car developed by Mark Perkins, 46, of Ascot, Berkshire is up for sale at an auction of sports cars and collectors pieces at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.
Perkins bought the 1973 Lincoln Continental in 1987 and spent a year modifying it.
Its quite a nice drive, but you get some funny looks and it causes chaos whenever you park it, Times Online quoted him as saying. (ANI)
