LOS ANGELES (AP) — El Batimóvil usado en la serie de televisión "Batman" se vendió en 4,2 millones de dólares.

El vehículo original, pintado de negro y utilizado en el programa de la década de 1960, fue rematado el sábado.

La casa de subastas Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. de Scottsdale, Arizona, anunció el precio de venta pero no el ganador de la puja.

El propietario del vehículo George Barris, de Los Angeles, transformó un auto concepto Lincoln Futura de 1955 en el vehículo de Batman. Cuenta con rayos láser y un "batiteléfono", además de poder dispersar una cortina de humo y arrojar aceite.

El automóvil fue utilizado por Adam West, que hizo de Batman, y por Burt Ward, su acompañante Robin, famoso porque empezaba siempre sus frases con la palabra "Holy" (Santos).

El publicista de Barris dijo que su cliente quedó complacido con el remate.
