"This is a great piece of lost pop culture and Americana," said Margaret Barrett, director of entertainment and music at Heritage Auctions. "There is a lot of interest in it."
The car was put up for auction by Toy Car Exchange LLC, an online marketplace for collectible cars, which bought it and had it restored to pristine condition, Barrett said.
It was the creation of Forrest Robinson, a Batman fan who spent three years customizing a 1956 Oldsmobile 88 with a 324 Rocket engine to resemble the single-fin vehicle depicted in DC's Batman Comics from the 1940s and 1950s. He finished in 1963.

Kormaran 3in1 Watercraft
Car | Concept
The 23-foot-long luxury yacht, powered by a 493-horsepower triple jet drive, can hit a top speed of 44 mph and has a range of 108 nautical miles at that top speed. The Kormaran's foldout hydrofoils allegedly reduce water resistance up to 80 percent, making for a smooth, fast, gas-efficient ride.   It’ll even transform while moving thanks to its pair of hydraulic-operated hulls.  The Kormaran combines a monohull, catamaran, trimaran, and sun-bathing platform in a single sleek, carbon-fiber package. Therei no word when the Kormaran prototype will hit market.

Tommy Hilfiger  s Solar Charging Jackets
Style | Apparel
Good idea? A solar harging jacket! This is Tommy Hilfiger’s new plaid and solar panel creation jackets. The jackets are available on Tommy Hilfiger’s website for $599. A cable runs to battery pack in one of the front pockets, which in turn has a double USB port, so you can charge two devices at once. When fully charged, the battery contains enough power to completely charge a 1,500 mAh device up to four times. It's not clear how long this process takes collecting power from the sun, but if you find it frustratingly slow, you can also pull the battery out and charge it up from an external power source via USB.
