(2019) estimated to have survived
Paint: Inca Orange, Ceylon Gold, Taiga Green, Gold yellow, Polaris Silver, Chamonix White, Fjiord Blue, Verona Red
Carb survivors: 60/70?
Only 110 of the first-generation ‘Batmobiles’ were built, painted in either Chamonix (white) or Polaris (silver). The rear wing that helped to earn the car its nickname was stored in the boot to avoid flouting some European countries’ traffic laws. Estimated 60 survivors.
The second generation of "Batmobile" was available in almost any color and any option. This is the reason why the cars are so different.

the history of Schnitzer vin numbers and chassis plates is extremely complicated and years of research is still being done by the few respected historians in the subject. Sadly, all revealing the vin of these race cars the past has done, is created fakes running around claiming to be "the car" in the picture. The people who do this research have a lifetime of knowledge and work in this area and unless they are 100% certain and know the real car is established beyond doubt, they will not make any claims, both to protect the real car and deter fakers.
