Pictured: A rare 1960s Batmobile toy has sold for over £117,000 following an unlikely bidding war.<br />
<br />
The open top red tin toy was made by manufacturers Yonezawa in 1966 for the Japanese market.<br />
<br />
It has a little model of the Caped Crusader in his Batsuit driving the vehicle.<br />
<br />
The toy came with its original packaging which displays artwork of Batman and Robin.<br />
<br />
It was given an estimate of £12,000 but interest and bidding in it took off.
