Los Angeles - The original Batmobile from the 1960s television series Batman has sold at auction for $4.2m.
A spokesperson for Barrett-Jackson Auction Co says the winning bidder has not been disclosed following Saturday's auction.
The 5.79m-long black, bubble-topped car was used in the Batman TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.
The car's owner - famed auto customizer George Barris, of Los Angeles -transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into the sleek crime-fighting machine. On the show, it boasted lasers and a Batphone and could lay down smoke screens and oil slicks.
Barris' publicist says his client is pleased with the auction result.
