Barrett-Jackson are reporting the car sold for $4.62 million which I assume includes their fees etc. The bidding itself on the auction floor reached $4.2 million.)
Champagne Logistics will certainly never look at my blog, but if he ever does, and he needs a butler or a sidekick in tights, I'm your man!
Mr. Champagne said after the win that he intended to put the Batmobile in his living room. Of course, his living room is probably bigger than the apartment complex I live in, and probably includes a mile long oval racetrack for all I know. But you've got to respect a man who wants to look at the Batmobile every single day of his life.
That also means that this #1 Batmobile may not be seen in public for a long time, so I am glad to have gotten the opportunity to have been in the presence of such a legend.
I also saw more classic cars than I can even wrap my head around during my time at the Barrett-Jackson auction, so I'll post some of those in the future. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.
