LOS ANGELES (November 29, 2012)--The original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series will be auctioned on Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The 19-foot-long black, bubble-topped car was used in the TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.
The car's owner, famed auto customizer George Barris, of Los Angeles, transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into a sleek crime-fighting machine.
On the show, it boasted lasers and a Batphone and could lay down smoke screens and oil slicks.
The auction house won't say how much it hopes to get for the car.
