1966 Batmobile Shipped to Car Show (From Gotham)

Enclosed Auto Transport

Did someone say iconic?

A few months ago we were very excited to ship one of the batmobiles AKA The Keaton-Mobile. Well things got even better this week when we transported the original (yes the actual one) batmobile.

Early summer of last year this comic book lovers dream was put on the auction block at Barret Jackson. The lucky winner, Arizona businessman Rick Champagne told the media he is planning on displaying the car in his living room. Now that’s what we call a conversation piece. Here’s a crazy conversation, the car went for $4.6 million, 50 years ago George Barris paid a $1 for the very same car (well not exactly but sounds good), we’ll just blame inflation. For the full story check out this pretty sweet site completely dedicated to the 1966 TV Batmobile.

Fast forward to 2014 and United Routes (hey, that’s us) was hired to transport the car from Arizona to a Texas auto show. Thanks Batman for giving us this opportunity, now please go save the world.
