Italian craftsman Ghia kept busy in the 1950s and made the beautiful Lincoln
Futura in 1954 for display at the 1955 Chicago auto show. The adorable classic
Futura’s canaliculate feature was the most important styling component as far as Lincoln was concerned, but the vehicle concept
itself became a cultural symbol more than a decade later when, in 1966, it was given a batlike face, crimped fins and black-and-orange colorant, becoming you expected it, the Batmobile for the Batman TV successions. Fifty years later, it remains one of the most well-known and favorite automobiles in past, trading at auction in 2013 for $4.6 million.
