Only One Batmobile

Like many a man of a certain age, the Batmobile will never be anything less than this .......

The Original Batmobile
.... and it was sold recently for $4.2m (£2.6m) at a US auction. Out there right now is one lucky 'Sonofabitch' who is driving this beauty!

The nearest I ever came was playing with the brilliant Corgi toy version ...........

Original Corgi Batmobile

..... excuse me while I get all misty eyed, and remember playing 'cars' with my brother ..... In our hands, and minds eyes, it wasn't the hall carpet, but the mean streets of Gotham

Batmobile On Mean Streets Of Gotham City

Of course Batman didn't always use the Batmobile.

The Bat Elephant?

  1. I had that toy. Front wheel steering. Extractable figures etc etc The best until Lady Penelope Parker's thunder bird car, and the James Bond Aston Martini with its machine guns.

    A real memory shaker.
