If you have always wanted your own Batmobile, the opportunity is here, but it will cost you.
The '60s-style Batmobile, based on the campy Batman series that starred Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin, is being replicated by Indiana-based Fiberglass Freaks and its owner, Mark Racop. Yahoo! Movies reported the company received the official licensing rights from DC Comics to recreate the car.
The replica is built around a 1970s Lincoln Town Car. Each will be road-ready and include details such as the bat-wing shaped tail fins and a working flamethrower exhaust.
There will also be some recent additions including a DVD player and a high-end stereo.
The first official replica will go to production on April 15, 2011, and be ready by Oct. 15, 2011. It is being auctioned on online auction site eBay.
The cost to buy one is $150,000.
Racop stated on his website that his love for the Batmobile actually started as a child when he saw his first episode in 1967. He bought a 1974 Monte Carlo in 1983 and worked with buddies to create a replica.
He worked on other versions over the years.
Fiberglass Freaks was born in 2004 and Racop made other Batmobile replicas, spending almost a quarter of a million dollars researching, developing and building the molds, designs and parts for his creations.
