(AP) The original Batmobile from the 1960s television series has sold at auction for $4.2 million.


A spokeswoman for the Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. in Scottsdale, Ariz., says the winning bidder has not been disclosed following Saturday's auction.


The 19-foot-long black, bubble-topped car was used in the Batman TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.


The car's owner famed auto customizer George Barris, of Los Angeles transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into the sleek crime-fighting machine. On the show, it boasted lasers and a Batphone and could lay down smoke screens and oil slicks.


Barris' publicist says his client is pleased with the auction result.
