Ford is celebrating 100 years in Britain by delving into its archive of photographs.
This week we have a concept car that you could think is the Batmobile with a different paintjob, but was, in fact, revealed by Ford more than a decade before the cult 1966 television series.
It's called the Futura and was built in 1954 to test public reaction to new styling designs. It was then used as the inspiration for Bruce Wayne's car in the 1960s.
