Who has never dreamed of slipping into the shoes of the darkest detective in history? That’s good, Bonhams is auctioning off a replica of the 1989 Batmobile. Notice to amateurs …
Batman fascinates, it is well known. DC Comics’ bat is as popular as its many gadgets. We obviously think of his favorite toy: his Batmobile.
If you dream of acquiring a bit of the Dark Knight, that’s good: Bonhams is auctioning a life-size replica of the Batmobile that appears in the movies “Batman” and “Batman: The Challenge” by Tim Burton, with Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne. Mythical, in other words! On Saturday March 20, 2021, the sale will begin. The gear is estimated between 23,000 and 35,000 euros.
Think of yourself as Batman!
Built a few years ago by the British company Z Cars on the basis ofa Ford 1965 Mustang, it has a spaceframe type chassis and a fiberglass body. A 5.7-liter, 380-hp Chevrolet V8 sits under the hood.
The cockpit worthy of a spaceship has also been faithfully reproduced. But don’t expect to find the least gadget : all the buttons are puppets. Note that it is approved for the road, at least in England.
The Batmobile in question will be sold as part of a sale of around 100 cars, the March 20, 2021. It is of course possible to bid online on the Bonhams site if you want to get hold of it!
