Original Batmobile - sold

The original Batmobile from the 1960s television series 'Batman' has sold at auction for $4.2 million.

A spokeswoman for Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. says the winning bidder has not been disclosed following Saturday's auction.

The 19-foot (5.79-meter) -long black, bubble-topped car was used in the "Batman" TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.

The car's owner, famed auto customizer George Barris, of Los Angeles, transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into the sleek crime-fighting machine. On the show, it boasted lasers and a "Batphone" and could lay down smoke screens and oil slicks.

Barris' publicist says his client is pleased with the auction result.
