'89 Batmobile on eBay: Get it while you're rich!

An eBay selling is auctioning a 1989 Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie for $110,000. Oddly, you have to sign a contract with Warner Bros. if you buy it.

The eBay auction ends Tuesday at 5 p.m. PDT for a Batmobile from the 1989 Batman movie. Supposedly this is one of the five made for the Michael Keaton/Jack Nicholson Batman and is being sold for the low, low starting price of $110,000.

As of this writing, there are no bids, but we still have a few hours to go. The seller comments that the "Batmobile 5 has been sitting in the 'Batcave' for almost five years now, and it is time for another Batman enthusiast to enjoy her as much as I have." This leaves me to speculate whether the thing actually runs, if it's just been collecting dust the last five years.

Apparently, you'll need to sign a contract with Warner Bros. if you want to buy it, which made me wonder just who was selling this thing. Luckily, Keaton seems to be still working so we can rule him out.

The 1989 Batmobile was somewhat cool for its time, but it has nothing on the Tumbler from The Dark Knight and Batman Begins. Too bad Bob Dullam has no plans to sell his masterpiece . Let's give him a few years though.

That "180mph" better not include the rocket boost. eBay
