In 1964 Batman comics were selling poorly, so DC comics gave the franchise a new look, with a new, dynamic artist and more detective-based stories. The bulky 1950s Batmobile was replaced with a light, sporty roadster that was fast and maneuverable. Corgi produced the first ever model of this particular car, and it was a very accurate rendition. It had twin rear fins and a bat motif on the grille rather than a heavy battering ram. The dashboard was well detailed and there was a Batman figure at the wheel. The working feature involved an instrument panel in front of the windscreen that popped up when the front axle was pushed down.--Diecast Collector
