    I just realised this the other day, but now it´s too late to edit my post
    I completely forget that there was an earlier Batman series too... With great sound effects which were displayed on screen BTW (KABOOM!!, BANG!!)
    This first Batmobile was sold to a Japanese collector I heard.

    I have seen them there, and have soem pics of them.. although they are really blurry and nowhere enar properly exposed. that trip was one of the things that convinced me i needed a real camera.

    BTW, Blackhawk collection is really impressive, several of the cars from Pebble and such are permanent members of the collection.

    Bertone B.A.T (Berlina Aerodynamica Tecnica)
    1953 Alfa Romeo B.A.T. 5 Bertone

    The BAT 5 was the first of the Bertone-Alfa Romeo BAT project. It was first shown at the Turin Auto show in 1953. The design of the model was based on a study of aerodynamics. The shape of the front in fact aims to eliminate the problem of airflow disruption at high speeds. The design also aims to do away with any extra resistance generated by the wheels turning, as well as achieving a structure which would create the fewest possible air vortices. In practice these rigorous criteria would allow the car to reach 200 km/h (124 mph) with the 100 hp engine mounted as standard. The design that Bertone came up with was for an extremely light car (1,100 kg (2,425 lb)), the ultimate in streamlining, with side windows at a 45 degree angle respect to the body of the car and a large windscreen which blends in perfectly with the almost flat roof. The most surprising part of the car has to be the tail, with the length-ways rear windscreen divided by a slim pillar, and the two fins tapering upwards and slightly inwards, for a highly aesthetic finish. There was no shortage of positive feedback: the car was an immediate hit for its aerodynamics and noteworthy stability at high speeds. Bertone had solved the problem of aerodynamic stability, creating a car with an excellent index of penetration, with a Cd of 0.23.

    Bertone B.A.T (Berlina Aerodynamica Tecnica)

    The second BAT to be shown at the Turin Auto Show, this time in 1954, a year after the BAT 5. The BAT 7 took up the styling dictates of the previous model, the BAT 5, and worked them to the limit. For this 1954 design, as for the other BAT models, though less evidently, Bertone added some elements from his experience working on wing profiles in the aeronautical industry. The result was the exaggerated shape of the large, curved tail fins.

    The nose was lower than the BAT 5's, and the protrusions where the headlights would normally be found stuck out even further. The headlights were located next to the nose and moved to point down when used. Even Fiat's experimental one-off wind-tunnel-derived Turbine car, the Turbina, which also made its debut at the show, seemed tame in comparison. The Cd was 0.19.
