No Reserve Turbine-Powered 1989 Batmobile Re-Creation at 2023 Scottsdale Auction
|This car is one of the TV Tribute Vehicles Crossing the Block During 2023 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction.
The 1989 Batmobile re-creation (Lot #1324) is the world’s only turbine-powered Batmobile. It was built by Ohio auto restorer and designer Casey Putsch and is faithful to the original. The bodywork on this one-of-one build is made from fiberglass and aluminum, with a steel cockpit chassis. It weighs 2,800 pounds, is 20 feet long and is powered by a Boeing turboshaft engine that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds with a reported top speed of 185 mph.
Barrett-Jackson is rolling out the red carpet for a group of iconic vehicle designs made famous on television and the big screen during its annual Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, January 21-29, 2023. Included in the docket of star car re-creations is the world’s only turbine-powered Batmobile re-creation (Lot #1324) based on the 1989 Batman film, a Ford Galaxie re-creation (Lot #1023) driven in the film “Fast Five” and a re-creation of the 1930 Pontiac “Munster Koach” (Lot #1100).
“Movie cars have a role all their own and can be just as iconic as the actors who drive them,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Our Scottsdale Auction will have truly remarkable star car recreations, like the 1989 version of the Batmobile originally brought to life by the creative genius of American filmmaker Tim Burton. All these re-creations crossing the block, like Marty McFly’s Toyota SR5 from ‘Back to the Future,’ each hold a unique place in Hollywood and TV history.”
