The original Batmobile managed to fetch $137,000 at an auction organized by Heritage Auctions.

Towards the end of last month we talked about the 1963 Batmobile heading to the auction block with a $90,000 starting bid. The car in question was developed by Batman fans Forrest Robinson and friend Len Perham and managed to go under the hammer for $137,000. The car itself started out as a 1956 Oldsmobile 88 but ended up with a custom body increasing the overall length to 5181mm while width jumped to 2108mm.

We remind you the 1966 Batmobile created by George Barris and driven by Adam West in the late 60s TV series grabbed a whopping $4.62 million at an auction organized January last year by Barrett-Jackson. Underneath the remodeled skin is a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept bought from Ford for $1 and converted in 15 days into the Batmobile, a project that cost $15,000.
