Here’s your chance to own a Barris-owned Batmobile


For anyone who has ever wanted to watch the BatScanner, deploy the BatChute, or execute an emergency BatTurn, RM Sotheby’s upcoming spring auction, May 10–12 in Auburn, Indiana, offers up one of the best opportunities to own a real Batmobile. This particular Batmobile was built by Jim Sermersheim in 1966 on a Ford Thunderbird chassis. Not one of the original Batmobiles built by the late George Barris, it was so well-done that Barris acquired it himself and recognized it as Batmobile #5.
