A fully armed Batmobile would cost more, a lot more, at least according to Ryan Friedlinghaus, host of "West Coast Customs" and "Pimp My Ride."

"It's kinda cool, because it looks like what we built," Friedlinghaus said of Synder's photos. West Coast Customs spent six months building another Batmobile for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo to help promote next year's video game "Batman: Arkham Knight," from Warner Bros.Interactive Entertainment. Warner Bros. also produces the Batman movies and the new "Gotham" prequel which debuted this week on Fox.
Friedlinghaus' Batmobile didn't actually drive, but he says it still cost about $1 million to create. As for the Batmobile in the upcoming movie, he estimates a working model would cost $3 million. However, "If a defense company was to make a vehicle like that, you've got to make it bulletproof, there are so many other pieces to it, then to make it look pretty and move around and drive, I mean, this thing has to go into war, I would say triple that."
So $9 million ... and that doesn't include the cost of munitions.
The first Batmobile from the 1960s TV series reportedly cost George Barris around $15,000 to build, constructed around a 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car.
