The 1966 TV Series Batmobile (commonly referred to as the '66 Batmobile) is a Hot Wheels casting based on the Batmobile featured on the original Batman TV series. The tool debuted in the 2007 New Models.

The Batmobile itself was created in the astonishingly short time of three weeks by custom car guru George Barris, who had previously purchased Lincoln's elegant 1955 "Futura" Concept Car. With new 1960s-style wheel arches, a few bat-like styling cues and a coat of black paint, the space-age Futura began a new life as the Dark Knight's ride.

The car was first released in 2007 as a prototype. The prototype debuted in the 2007 New Models with a ZAMAC body.
