There is news for the fans of the Batman franchise. It has been recently confirmed that the famous ‘Batpod’ from the Dark Knight film was put on sale. And some die-hard fan has purchased this bike GBP 3,12,000 (Rs. 2.5 crore)

This particular prop store is in partnership the Odeon theatre which is an immensely popular chain in Europe. The auction was held last week at the BFI IMAX in London. Among the memorabilia were also some of the auto enthusiast favorites like the ‘Tumbler’, ‘Bat Aircraft’ and the ‘Batpod’.

Interestingly this was a technically challenging and a difficult prop to build. The production team had unanimously called this prop a ‘Hero’ version as this was the most detailed version of this model ever made.

The bike comes from the Christopher Nolan global blockbuster film called the ‘The Dark Knight’ which was one of the highest grossing films of the series. Amazingly enough, someone purchased the Batman’s Bat Suit for 1,92,000 GBP (around Rs. 1.66 crore) while the suit from the first movie got them about 96,000 GBP (around Rs. 83 lakh).

OUTRAGEOUS!

The sound of a great engine, the unity and uniqueness of an automobile's engineering and the design, the history of the company and the car, and, of course, the sheer beauty of the thing.
