eBay Find of the Day: Alex Van Halen's murdered-out Ariel Atom

Alex Van Halen's 2009 Ariel Atom – Click above for high-res image gallery

Alex Van Halen made his name as co-founder of legendary hair metal band Van Halen, alongside the guitar-shredding talents of his younger brother Eddie. Remember the drum solo intro to "Hot for Teacher"? That was the talented Mr. Van Halen. Turns out the man behind that killer, Harley Davidson-aping drum solo is a car aficionado par excellence, apparently with a penchant for tube-frame track rats.

According to this eBay listing, Van Halen has decided to get rid of his black-on-black, Eco Tec-powered Ariel Atom. The asking price for this celebrity-owned Atom is accordingly steep, despite the fact that the only documentation of Van Halen's ownership is the seller's word.
