(Read caption) This reportedly street-legal Batmobile is built like the vehicles used during the filming of director Christopher Nolan's "Batman" films. The asking price is $1 million, and while it doesn't come with a grappling hook, the seller says it will work with your iPod.

It's hard to say which of the many incarnations of the Batmobile is the best, but there's no denying that the one most likely to strike fear into the hearts of criminals is the "Tumbler" from the Christopher Nolan Batman movie trilogy.

This replica Tumbler features a Chevrolet LS1 V-8 and the requisite dual rear wheels, shod in 44-inch Super Swamper tires. A seller in Indialantic, Florida posted it on collector-car website James Edition with an asking price of $1 million. So which would you rather have: this, or a Bugatti Veyron?

For that price, would-be Caped Crusaders also get GPS, five cameras to make up for the Tumbler's many blind spots, and a sound system with iPod integration. The seller claims this replica is a 1-of-5 limited edition.

While it is listed as street legal, the ad states that the Tumbler "is not a daily driver." While it's probably not the easiest car to park, that didn't stop Team Galag from building a Tumbler replica of its own for the Gumball Rally.

Jay Leno took one of the actual movie Tumblers for a spin as well, proving that, while rare, even Batman's ride isn't truly one of a kind.
