Batmans Batpod Auction

Ever wanted to own the Batmobile? How about one better, the Batpod?  The Batpod is the hero’s motorcycle used in The Dark Knight, and the Dark Knight Rises, and now you have the chance to own it! Prop Store is hosting one of Europe’s largest and most exciting Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auctions at the London ODEON BFI IMAX this September 27th, from 12:00pm

This incredible vehicle features a custom-made chassis with 31″ Hoosier racing tyres and a Honda 750 engine. Fibreglass body panels finished in metallic grey paint cover the bike’s engine and handlebars. A pair of cannon barrels made of plastic, resin and fibreglass are secured at the front of the vehicle, and a laser targeting unit is fitted above the right hand grip. A radiator and hydraulics are fitted behind the saddle, and the braking system is operated by controls on the left handle and the right pedal. Black foam padding is installed on the body, saddle and knee rests for comfort whilst riding.

Well-used on both productions, as well as in the promotion of the films as part of the Warner Bros. archive, the Batpod displays some wear to the body panels and some light corrosion on the chassis, with damage to the left gun mount as a result of use on set. However, in spite of this wear, the vehicle remains in very good condition and is supplied with a metal support stand for display purposes. Dimensions: 380 cm x 120 cm x107 cm (149 ½” x 47 ¼” x 42 ¼”)

This lot is supplied with a Warner Bros. certificate of authenticity in place of a Prop Store certificate. There is a payment plan option available on this item, albeit it is restricted to a duration of one month. So if any of you jumped up and down in excitement at that concept – your 1 monthly payment is likely to be in the region of £60,000-£80,000.

The batpod is being sold in non-functional ‘rolling only’ condition. (It is drained of all fluids, and the battery, fuel tank and throttle controls have been removed.) – So if you want to get this bad boy working, they’ll be some work (and more money!) involved!
