The Dark Knight Batpod Is Going Up For Auction

batman-batpod-the-dark-knight

The custom-built Batpod motorcycle is going up for auction and you can own it for about $80,000. Considering the Batpod is rather priceless, any amount of money is worth owning a piece of Batman movie history, right?

The Batpod was featured in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises mostly during the police chase scene, where Batman steps on the gas and speeds off on what is probably the coolest motorcycle ever.

The auction is being hosted in the UK by Prop Store, where it's expected to sell for at least $80,000 to $100,000. Although it's being sold as a roller (as in doesn't run), it just needs a few things to get the engine started and on the road.

You'll need to put in fresh fluids (all fluids have been drained), install new throttle controls, a new gas tank, and battery. The fiberglass bike is powered by a 750cc Honda motor (usually rated stock at 120 mph) and sits on 31” Hoosier racing tires. Alright, that is a bit slower than we expected, but you can always retrofit a bigger motor into it. Now, we're wondering how Batman even got away on a bike so slow in the first place!

The auction begins at the end of September, so you have some time to get your funds ready to bid.
