Click above for gallery of the Batmobile

The Michael Keaton/Jack Nicholson Batman is and probably always will be my all-time favorite movie, and the ostentatious Batmobile was one of my most cherished Hot Wheels. Owning the flat-black exotic has always been a less than realistic goal, but thanks to eBay, someone will have that chance. If you like the Batmobile as much as I do, and unlike me have at least $500,000, you can actually purchase the Dark Knight's superhero-mobile on eBay.

The Batmobile on auction is number five of five, and with only 54 miles on the odometer, it is one rare bird indeed. It has no doors, and the only way to get behind the wheel is to jump in through the roof. The 20-foot long Batmobile hides a 5.7L Chevy small-block under-hood that hasn't been driven in five years, and judging from the pics on eBay, it's an automatic, too. It does make sense for Batman to fore-go manual shifts, since he needed to use his free hand to fire 50-caliber machine guns. Somehow we have the feeling that heavy artillery isn't included in the auction, but at least you can look like your car can blow things up. Nobody has bid on the item yet, and at 500-large we're guessing this auction has a chance of reappearing soon at a lower starting price. Thanks for the tip, Steve!

      You know u want it...

      I bet there will be so many conditions that it won't be worth it..like..

      The owner can't drive the car...right here makes the car not even worth $10. If the owner can't drive it..what is the use?

      Also..it probably can't be seen in public. Again..what is the use?

      With so many conditions, the owner would have purchased a $500,000 paperweight sitting in a garage..

        yea, I'd just do it anyway. And if they complained I'd be like, fine I'll take the thing out back and set it on fire! No sense of it existing if you can't drive it!

      When i worked at great adventure (NJ) years ago, they had a few of them there, one for display, others for the stunt show.
      Never really saw the interiors though.

      I clicked on the ebay link, and it says the item has been removed.

      Anyone else notice the "V4" and "V8" indicators on the dashboard? Prop mans sense of humor?

        To please Hollywood's "green" hypocrites, it's been retrofitted with cylinder deactivation technology. That said, if you buy the car, you get a free, international solo flight on any of Travolta's private jets. :)

      Jack Nicklaus? Was that a joke? I didn't know the first Batman movie was about golf.
        • 7 Years Ago
        actually I don't think it was a joke. I get these names mixed up and have to think for a sec
        • 7 Years Ago
        Your clues should of been: The Joker's car was a golf cart, Arnold Palmer played Bruce's butler, and Batman had golf balls and tee's on his utility belt.

        Of course it was a joke.

      Was the Michael Keaton/Jack Nicklaus version better than the Michael Keaton/Jack Nicholson version? Can't wait to see that one
      • 7 Years Ago
      piece of sh!t.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Ah yes... Jack Nicklaus played a mean joker. ;^)

      There is one of these in the Kruse collection in Auburn Indiana, and I've been told by a number of people that it has been seen at W.O.T. on the local interstate!

      Why do all these high dollar custom movie cars keep popping up on eBay being sold by seller with little or no feedback???

      I smell a scam.

      You'd think if you owned the Batmofreakingbile you'd at LEAST have an auction company with a good rep or a friend with more better feedback list it for them.


      His last two (and only two) sales on eBay?

      A $4300 POS Hooptie Lincoln, and a 1952 Dodge police car for $3500

      This car is kindah crappy and yet very expensive.
      There are Batmobiles for rent at reasonable rates here
      and you can rent other movie and tv cars here
