  2. You think it would cost more than $40,000 to fabricate this replica. Plus would the Auction House have any liability for selling an copyright infringement. They probability should be held more accountable like a Real Estate agent or Lawyer.
  3. Holy handbrake turns, Batman! Museum puts road legal replica of the BATMOBILE up for sale for £30,000 An incredible replica of the iconic Michael Keaton Batmobile is set to sell at auction for up to £30,000 It was purchased by the London Motor Museum in Hillingdon where it was on display until the museum closed Now the vehicle, which is built on a vintage Ford Mustang, is being sold by Bonhams on March 20 An incredible road legal replica of the classic Batmobile used in the films starring Michael Keaton is set to sell at auction - and fetch up to £30,000. The custom-made vehicle is an exact copy of the Batmobile driven in two Batman films, in 1989 and in 1992, both starring Michael Keaton as the caped crusader. In 2016 a specialist company in the UK constructed the replica, using a vintage 1965 Ford Mustang as the base. Tim Burton's Batmobile, driven by Michael Keaton in two Batman movies is one of the most popular versions of Batman trusty motor. The Batmobile itself sat on a Chevrolet chassis and even features functional gadgets. However, the exhaust afterburner could only run for around 15 seconds. The original Keaton Batmobile was voice-controlled with an interior that features contoured seats, aircraft instrumentation and a weapon system that includes two Browning submachine guns. The design of the car was so important that Michael Keaton's Batsuit had to be modified so that he could fit into the car, rather than modifying the car itself.

  5. EV Surge Sends Cobalt Prices Soaring; China controls big chunk of market for key metal in car batteries that is mined largely in AfricaFriday, January 22, 2021, 11:38 AM ETBy Yang JieA 20% rise in the price of cobalt since the beginning of this year shows how the rush to build more electric vehicles is stressing global supply chains.Already a shortage of semiconductors is slowing the recovery in auto production. Now cobalt, a blue metal that is needed for many types of batteries including those in EVs, is a concern, according to people in the auto and battery industries and analysts."The demand is not going to shrink any time soon, while the supply remains tight mainly due to logistics disruptions in South Africa during the pandemic," said Ying Lu, an analyst at London-based commodity research firm Roskill.Energy-dense cobalt is used as the stabilizer in batteries. It helps protect the battery's cathode from corrosion that can lead to a fire.A majority of the world's cobalt is mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa. It typically is carried overland to South Africa, shipped out from the port of Durban, South Africa, and processed in China before the material goes to battery makers—meaning the supply chain has several choke points that make it vulnerable to disruption.In 2017 and 2018, during an earlier rush of interest in EVs, the price of cobalt quadrupled in the space of two years before a boost in production calmed the market down. Recent moves aren't as extreme, but the spot price of cobalt rose to $38,520 a ton as of Jan. 21, according to Futuresource, up 20% since the end of December.The election of President Biden as well as recent climate-change initiatives by China and Japan have accelerated a shift to electric vehicles. Tesla Inc . has said it aims to build 20 million vehicles annually a decade from now, a 40-fold increase from last year.More EVs mean more batteries. They account for about 40% of an EV's cost, according to a report published by China-based Guotai Junan Securities Co . last year. Analysts say cobalt is the most expensive material in the batteries.

  10. Here is a response from the Reo Member Carl who is doing the registry. Send me a Personal Message PM with your email or telephone number and Carl will call you if you want ? You can tell him 1935 was the last year REO made a Royale, the 7S. What may well have happened is the car was not sold till 1936 or the new buyer did not go in to title and license it till 1936 and it was then licensed as a 1936, a mistake which occurred all to often in those years. Carl
