According to the Associated Press, the original Batmobile, once driven by the one-and-only Adam West, is scheduled to be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz. on January 19.

From the Associated Press:

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

And just like Batman, the Batmobile has its secrets. The auction house won't say how much it hopes to get for the car.

The real question is, will the original Batmobile sell for less than that crime-fighting suit Phoenix Jones has been eyeing?
