The ORIGINAL Batmobile was auctioned off over the weekend, and it went for $4.62 MILLION. This is the one from the '60s series starring ADAM WEST. Six Batmobiles were used during the show's run . . . and this was the FIRST one.
That seems like a lot . . . but remember: This is a SWEET RIDE.
Consider this: Two years ago, we heard about a company that was granted permission to make full-scale, street legal, exact replicas of the original Batmobile. And THOSE were going for $150,000 each.
And in 2010, the Aston Martin DB5 that SEAN CONNERY drove in the James Bond movie "Goldfinger" was also auctioned off for $4.6 million.
