Michael Keaton Batmobile

Michael Keaton-era Batmobile for sale at $1.5 Million

Pennsylvania has a Batmobile that has risen from the dead and is available for purchase for $1.5 Million.

Official replica of the car featured in Tim Burton’s Batman films starring Michael Keaton is used.

It was originally commissioned by Warner Bros. to be used as a promotion vehicle. However, it was later repurposed at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey.

Stewart Howden, president of Classic Auto Mall, stated that the car was initially powered by a 350-cubic-inch V8 but later converted to an electric motor for use in the park.

However, it still has a flamethrower that can create the jet engine effect.

A driver’s seat is hidden behind the front seats. This allowed a Batman actor or a passenger to go along on a ride.

It had been abandoned for many years before it was purchased by the current owner who restored it to its former glory.

According to reports, it runs on a 48-volt battery. It has a top speed of 30 mph and is not currently driven.

An emergency kill switch was hidden under the bodywork to allow someone outside to disable it in an emergency.

The Batmobile can be seen at Morgantown’s Classic Auto Mall showroom, where it doubles as a museum that houses over 650 vehicles.

For the production of the 1989 film, two primary stunt cars were built. One is now in the Petersen Automotive Museum Los Angeles while the other is owned by a private collector.
