OK, I know what I'm asking for this Christmas.

Fiberglass Freaks, an Indiana auto replica manufacturer, is offering perhaps the coolest collectible you can imagine: an officially licensed replica of the Batmobile, created from a 1970s-era Lincoln Town Car. The cost? Well, let's talk about that later.

The replicas will have every element from the Batmobile of the 1960s TV series, including double-bubble windshields, fins, pseudo-future-y controls, and the essential rear-exhaust flamethrower. Fiberglass Freaks will set you up with either a new GM 350 crate engine or a rebuilt 460 Ford.

Each car takes six months to complete, and Fiberglass Freaks plans to make only eight of these beauties each year. (They will be working on cars concurrently, of course.) All this can be yours for a mere $150,000!

For more info, including tons of photos of the cars in various stages of development, check out Fiberglass Freaks right here.

(Aside: Check it out! Jimmie Johnson can even beat the Batmobile!)
