THE orig­i­nal Bat­mo­bile from the 1960s TV se­ries is up for auc­tion in Ari­zona next month. Famed auto cus­tomiser Ge­orge Bar­ris, pic­tured, trans­formed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lin­coln Fu­tura con­cept car into the sleek 5.7-me­tre, bub­ble-topped crime fight­ing ma­chine. Now 87, Bar­ris is sell­ing the Caped Cru­sader’s com­pany car. The TV show starred Adam West as Bat­man, aka ty­coon Bruce Wayne, and in­tend­ing buy­ers might need his kind of cash — auc­tion house Bar­rett Jack­son an­tic­i­pates knock­ing it down for $2 mil­lion. Be­fore its time, it was fit­ted with lasers and a Bat­phone and could lay down smoke­screens and oil slicks.
