This is one of the earlier versions which has gold wheel hubs with red bats, although the earliest versions were painted a matt black when first released, reputably because when Corgi representatives had visited the real Batmobile it had only it's black primer and not its final gloss coat. Subsequently Corgi gave the model a gloss black finish a few months later.
These original versions had no tow hook, so when the Batboat was released a year later, a plastic add-on hook was made to solve the problem until Corgi began producing later models complete with metal hooks.
This hook meant that later models didn't have the 'Turbine fire' bobbing in and out.
Even though my example is a little painted chipped and the screens have little hairline cracks, apparently, according to the Corgi Batmobile website it wasn't uncommon for brand new Batmobiles to leave the Corgi factory with a little damage as during manufacture they were packed together in metal trays, metal to metal, and so to quote a line from the site -' it it's mint it wasn't made here'.
Even though Corgi decided against doing the red strips on the bodywork, there is some nice detail in the cockpit. You can just see the emergency Bat-turn lever under the beacon.
The flip out chain-cutter was down to Corgi, as the Bat- ram as seen in the TV series wasn't a feasible option to fit underneath easily.
Just for good measure there's the triple rocket firing tubes behind the canopy.
ZAP! POW! More Batmobile stuff to come!
