Rick Champagne of Arizona buys Batmobile. He knew it was his.

Rick Champagne buys Batmobile 548 pxWhen asked about his $4.2M purchase of the Batmobile from George Barris at the Barrett-Jackson auction, Champagne said “I knew it would be mine.”

If you put your mind to something, and in the this case your checkbook, in true Batman style Champagne shows that anything is possible.

Not much is known about Rick Champagne other than he lives in Arizona and plans to put the car in his living room. His approving wife was with him during the purchase so has already avoided any potential difficult discussions with his partner.

Rick Champagne is president of logistics company Champagne Logistics. No word was given how his new roll as Batman would affect his day job.
