Official 1966 Batmobile Replicas Now for Sale (Teen Sidekick Not Included)

As far as first cars go, I’m fairly certain that the 1966 Batmobile makes my purple Honda Odyssey look a little stupid.

For just $150,000, Mark Racop and his Fiberglass Freaks replicas will get you a full, exact copy of the 1966 Batmobile. Which of course means that the only thing standing in the way of you fulfilling a childhood fantasy is that irrational fear of engulfing people behind you in flames.

Oh, did you forget about this?

Yes, that’s correct – the rocket exhaust flamethrower works, and will bring even more attention to you than your average dude driving in a street-legal Batmobile.

According to the good folks at Gizmodo, the car also comes with:

• Show-car quality paint job.
• Car sports Radir wheels with accurately shaped bat spinners.
• Brand new GM 350 crate engine and brand new transmission.
• Center console aluminum trim
• Five light flasher, steering bezel, door sill chevron plates, “chrome-painted seat buckets, and even the very knobs, buttons and T handles are molded from vintage equipment.”
• Five highly-polished aluminum roll top dashboard doors that glide open.
• Red beacon light.
• Batbeam antenna grid raises between the front windshields.
• Detect-a-scope radar screen glows green.
• DVD player that plays on the LCD screen in the dash.
• Hood and trunk raise and lower with actuator switches.

While it may not be the Batmobile I was raised on (mine was all voice command, and would stop when Michael Keaton said “stop”) it’s still a bad-ass piece of machinery.  You kind of owe yourself (and the fact that you probably drove a Toyota or a Neon in high school) to go over to Fiberglass Freaks and at least imagine what it would be like to do donuts in this thing.
