(R.I.P)BATMOBILE CREATOR GEORGE BARRIS DEAD
George Barris, the creator of the amazing 1966 Batmobile and many other legendary whips … has died.
Barris’ most famous car was surely the one Adam West drove during the “Batman” TV show. But he has a rich automotive history … he designed the ‘Munsters’ Koach, the truck for “The Beverly Hillbillies” and the modified Dodge Charger for “Thunder Alley.”
The Batmobile sold at auction in 2013 for $4.62 million.
Barris died early Thursday. We’re told he’d been battling a brain tumor. He was just shy of 90.
