A fully functioning and roadworthy 'Tumbler' Batmobile has now been made available for purchase.
Costing a whopping $1 million, the highly accurate replica not only looks the part but can also be legally driven on the streets as well. The famous vehicle was used by Christian Bale's Batman in all three of Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" movies.
In addition to its iconic status the Tumbler comes complete with driver-assist cameras, Bluetooth connectivity, GPS and a DVD player. Fans of the movies however may be disappointed to learn that it does not come with Batman's usual arsenal of advanced weaponry or the ability to convert in to a two-wheeler when things get dicey.

The original Batmobile, the one designed by George Barris for use in the 1960s TV series, was sold at auction last year for a staggering $4.2 million.

It's too geometrically intense for my tastes. Like Picasso. Love this!! Now I know why I don't like Picasso! This describes it perfectly! Thank you

Is that the one that the guy tried to sell on "Pawn Stars"? No, that one was a replica from the Keaton Batman movie.

Love this!! Now I know why I don't like Picasso! This describes it perfectly! Thank you I'm glad I could help. I never liked his work. I wouldn't mind stumbling across one of his works in my attic though.

Wow, what a car to be able to own! I wonder how many heads would turn when you drive that down the street haha! Love it My first car was a 1963 Ford Falcon wagon, jet black and top speed was about 55 with the windows closed!! Going on level, up hill it dropped to 30 mph.
