Autoblog beat us to the punch, we can't top the opening line "Holy celebrity auction, Batman!"

Out in Arizona, Barret-Jackson Auction is gearing up for a sale of the original Batmobile on January 19, 2013. Built by famed customizer George Barris, the car is based on the Lincoln Futura concept from 1955. Barris built the car for $15,000 in just 15 days. He's owned the car since 1965. Features included: Batscope, Bat Eye Switch, Antenna Activator, Police Band Cut-In Switch, Automatic Tire Inflation Device, Remote Batcomputer, the Batphone, Emergency Bat Turn Lever, Anti-Fire Activator, Bat Smoke, Bat Photoscope, and many other Bat gadgets.

We'll envy whoever lands this grand piece of American history.
