Original Batmobile to go under the hammer

James Batchelor

The original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series is due to come to auction in January.

Hardcore fans of the comic-book series, which made a comeback to the big screen in 2005 and grossed almost $50 million over its opening weekend, will flock to the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Arizona for a chance to bid on this ultimate piece of film memorabilia.
