Batman's ride is up for sale -- just the thing for cruising on those dark nights.

The original Batmobile from the 1960s TV series will be auctioned on Jan. 19 at the Barrett-Jackson auction house in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The 19-foot-long black, bubble-topped car was used in the TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.

The car's owner -- auto customizer George Barris of Los Angeles -- transformed a one-of-a-kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car into a sleek crime-fighting machine.

The auction house won't say how much it hopes to get for the car.
