Batman 1966 Barris Batmobile Foundation 1:18 Scale Vehicle

Batman 1966 Barris Batmobile Foundation 1:18 Scale Vehicle

:
  • 1966 Batman 1:18 Scale Batmobile!
  • Designed by famed customizer George Barris.
  • Batman's sleek ride in the 1966 TV series.
  • One of the most exclusive and timeless cars of the Hot Wheels Elite line!
In October of 1965, the Batmobile was born, and the sleek and classic ride of the Caped Crusader features an enduring design that stands the test of time over 50 years later. In 1:18 scale and a displayable window box, this die-cast Batman vehicle designed by famed customizer George Barris is one of the most exclusive and timeless cars of the entire Hot Wheels Elite line. Don't miss it!

In 1955, the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company designed and built a concept "car of the future" named the Futura. It was a two-seat grand touring car with instruments housed in the steering wheel, a push-button transmission, exterior microphones to pick up and transmit traffic sounds and a host of other innovative devices. It was a rolling laboratory from which Ford would learn about new technology to apply to their production automobiles. The car was built entirely by hand in Turin, Italy and like many concept cars, was never put into production. In the mid 1960's, George Barris of Barris Kustom City acquired the car directly from Ford. The story goes that years later, when he heard that Fox was going to be doing a Batman TV Series and needed an exotic car, he sketched out a version of the Futura with suitable "bat" alterations, and presented it to the producers. George felt it was the perfect answer, considering the bat-like qualities his Futura already had and the fact that the car had to be ready for action in a mere three weeks. Some time later, in October of 1965, the Batmobile was born!
