A Tale of Two Batmobiles

The 1966 George Barris Batmobile is probably the one you know. But it’s neither the first Batmobile, or in my mind, the purest expression of automotive Batmania. That distinction goes to Forrest Robinson’s original ground-up 1959-1963 design, an extraordinary vehicle coming to auction on eBay on July 4.

The Only LaFerrari For Sale In North America Is on eBay

Ferrari has a wonderful tradition of building limited-series sports cars that are blindingly fast and exquisitely designed—but that can be driven by mere mortals on everyday streets.

Rare McLaren P1 Plug-in Supercar Shows Up on eBay

A general search for a McLaren vehicle on eBay reveals a couple dozen MP4-12C supercars. The MP4 (or simply 12C) is the follow-up to the legendary McLaren F1.
