Homemade 1963 Batmobile - level 2
A fan of the comics about Batman wanted to have the same car as Batman, so he created his own Batmobile.
It took him three years to customise a car made in 1956. He finished his Batmobile in 1963. This car looks like the Batmobile, which was depicted in the comics from the 1940’s to the 1950’s. The car became so popular that DC Comics leased the car from him. However, he sold the car sold at auction recently. Somebody paid 137,000 dollars for it.
Another man built his Batmobile, too. It also looks beautiful and it was sold for 4.2 million dollars last year.
Difficult words: customise (to change something), depict (represent), lease (rent).
