Holy Fancy Cars...It's the Batmobile

The Batmobile is one of the most recognizable vehicles ever.  The car on tv's Batman was based on the Lincoln Futura Show car, a concept car by Ford from the 1950's.  It was reported to cost $3 million and took just 3 weeks to build.
Over the years, several replicas were made, both legitimate and simple fiberglass skeletons.  The one I saw in Novi at the Motor City Comic Con was a real replica, if not the real deal.  Who really knows for sure?  Either way, if I pulled up in any version of this vehicle, I am sure heads would turn!
