Without a doubt Batman Forever had best cast lineup of the all the Batman series: They a had skinny Val Kilmer, young Jim Carrey, Nicole Kidman, Tommy Lee Jones.
Unfortunately the car used to promote that film has not aged quite as nicely (or at least as stolidly) as some of its co-stars. The styling isn’t exactly “classically beautiful”– but if you’re a Batman fanatic, we have good news: Auctions America by RM is offering the 1995 Batmobile Batman Forever at its March 4th sale in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
The batmobile was built in Australia and came with a Chevrolet 350 ZZ3 high-performance engine which could reach speeds up to 330 mph! The body is made from a vacuum-bagged high-temperature epoxy fiberglass laminate. The wheelbase is 118 inches (3.0 m), the average car wheelbase measures around 103 (USDOT Data 1980–2000) inches. In all, its size was 7.62 m long and 3.20 m high.
Its cost $2.5 million to make the body mold alone, plus an extra $300,000 to actually build the thing–which is in proper running condition, RM says. The auction catalog estimate lists it at $200,000-$275,000.
Don’t get to excited, there is a catch. Warner Brothers must approve the winning bidder before the sale is considered final, and WB can refuse any buyer it doesn’t fancy. It’s largely a formality, says spokeswoman Kerrey Kerr-Enskat. WB just wants to make sure you won’t be using the Batmobile to promote, say, a Batman movie of your own?!
