- Model:Continental - Batmobile
Holy fast facts batman!
The original 1966 Batmobile was converted from a 1955 Lincoln concept car named the Futura and recently sold for 4.2 million US dollars!
The Perth replica was built by Argyll Restorations using a 1979 Lincoln Continental chassis and was constructed over 4 years on weekends.
A 400 Cleveland M V8 replaces the original atomic batteries - because Perth is a nuclear free zone.
The amazing shine was achieved with a few coats of De Beer Super Jet Black paint generously supplied by Westcoast Automotive Supplies.
The real heroes that made the impossible possible are: David and Andrew Cox, Carmelo Anello and Roger May.
To the Bat Cave!
