Built in 1963, the earliest officially-licensed Batmobile known to exist was used by DC Comics licensee All Star Dairies to tour small towns in the Eastern U.S. as “Batman’s Batmobile.” This original custom Batmobile precedes even the iconic Lincoln Futura iteration of the Batmobile that graced the screens in the popular 1966 Batman TV series.
As this 1963 Batmobile goes up for sale at Heritage Auctions, take a look back at all the other Batmobiles to have been featured on film.
The 1943 serial Batman and 1949 serial Batman and Robin featured unmodified Cadillac and Mercury cars respectively as their “Batmobiles” and, as such, are not featured in this gallery.
