Enjoy spending your evenings brooding menacingly over the degradation of society and all its depravity? Fond of tight black leather? Not enough fibre in your diet?

Well friends, sounds like you have the perfect underpinnings to make a great Batman. And as any comic-book aficionado will tell you, a good Batman needs a Batmobile. More specifically, the Batmobile, used in 1992's Batman Returns.

This Batmobile is apparently one of the actual vehicles used by Michael Keaton while filming the comic-book blockbuster, with a Chevy 5.7-litre V8, around 200bhp and full hydraulics.

It's on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $499,000. Avenge your parents!
