26-year-old Li Weilei and friends have built a full-scale Tumbler Batmobile replica out of scrap metal at a warehouse in Shanghai.

More than any other superhero, Batman is known for his car. In fact, he's one of the few major superheroes to even have a car worth a damn, anyway. I think I once saw Superman parking a Geo Prizm.

Battle Of The Batmobiles: Which Is faster, '60s Or '80s Batmobile?

Who's foolish enough to not bid on a Batman Tumbler golf cart?

I don't know about you guys but I don't have much self control when it comes to awesome things that deserve to be purchased. Even if they don't do anything I can't help myself.
