Own Your Very Own Fully Functional BATMOBILE Replica

Now anyone can own a 1966 replica of the Batmobile if they have enough of the green stuff, $187,200 to be exact. 
This replica has all the bells and whistles too; it's an officially licensed, fully-functional replica of the car Adam West was driving back in 1966 and is loaded with all the gadgets we remember from the TV series – a working flamethrower rocket exhaust, flashing red beacon, roll top dashboard doors, automatic Batbeam antenna grid and the  Detect-a-Scope radar screen and it even has an automatic truck lid and hood.
Modern amenities include a push-button ignition, dash mounted DVD player and a six-speaker audio system. Each Batmobile sports a brand new Chevy 350 crate engine that puts out 280 horsepower and 325ft/lbs of torque with an automatic transmission.  The Batmobile will go 0-60 in 5 seconds, but only has a top speed of 90 mph. Gas mileage is a factor, it only gets 9 miles to the gallon!
The Tumblers from Christopher Nolan's movies are definitely what I'm holding out for but still this is a pretty cool purchase for the geek with money to burn.  Head over to Firebox to check it out and buy one, then come pick me up. you can even watch a video of the 1966 Batmobile replica in action HERE.
