In August 1965, the producers of the "Batman" TV show approached ultra-customizer George Barris to create a new Batmobile for their upcoming program. The car had to be ready to fly in only 3 weeks. Fortunately Barris had previously acquired the futuristic concept car called the Lincoln Futura. Ford had had it built in 1955 (ten year prior!) and at a cost of $250,000! Barris paid a buck. He saw the bat-like qualities the Futura already had and with a bit of addition... the Batmobile made its debut in October of 1965.

This Super Elite version released in total worldwide edition size under 3,000. The regular Elite version of 16,000 sold out almost instantly.

In addition to the features on the regular Elite version of the Batmobile, this Super Elite version includes:

Leather wrapped parachute bags

Metal ring pull for bat chutes to right of driver's seat

Bat radar antenna

Photo-etched running boards

Photo-etched turbine discs

Real metal missile launchers, rear antenna, exhaust trim

Real metal braided hoses on jet motor

Greater dash detail

Special metal display platform
