One of the 167 Batmobiles ever built is going up for auction through RM Sothebys. According to its BMW certificate, the car was reportedly completed on 27 July 1973 and finished in classic Chamonix Metallic White (085). RM Sotheby's said the car has been "lovingly preserved as new" and is in original condition and was purchased by its current owner in 2013. The car still has its original 'Batmobile' aerodynamics package, including the often-damaged front air dam, short roof spoiler and three-piece rear wing.
