Badass custom Opel GT Batmobile sells for a measly $9k


Having recently bought a car myself, I'm familiar with the vagaries of used automobiles. My headlamps are a bit out of weak and the carburetor needs some tweaking, for instance.

But learning the quirks of a new car is half the fun of buying used. I shudder to imagine how much joy I'd have discovering how to work this one-of-a-kind Batmobile based on a '73 Opel GT and stuffed to the gills with early '90s electronics.

Check out some of the stuff that was inside:

1. SONY Digital Navigation System #NVX-F160

3. SONY Magic Link System with pager. This is the original vehicle PDA system before there were PDAs. Google Sony Magic Link System to get an idea. I do not know how to use it but it is there. I think you send emails, messaging, etc.

4. SONY Magic Link SkyTel Card

6. SONY Hi-8 VCR

7. Pioneer CD player DEH-85 in the dash....comes with the batman theme on cd!

8. Alpine Bat Phone #91530

11.Super Nintendo NES Game system with Batman Forever game.......yes, a game system that plays batman!

13.Alpine 80-80 Remote Commander RMX 38 (something to do with the alarm I think)

14.Alpine Alarm 8401 with paging system, unlocks and opens doors, windows...It will take you a full day just to learn the alarm system.

And you know what the kicker is? This thing sold for just nine grand. Breaks my heart. I would totally have paid ten just to make this my daily driver.
