World champion Lewis Hamilton expressed interest in buying a wild custom car from Ken Block, the famous American rally and stunt driver.

One of the most fascinating cars in 48-year-old Block’s garage is a custom and totally-unique 1965 Ford Mustang, punching 845 horse power and specially prepared for one of his famous Gymkhana videos.

“Lewis Hamilton wanted to buy the Mustang from me,” Block told Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport.

“When he heard the price, he suddenly lost interest,” he laughed.

Block suggested that he raised the price unattainably high because he actually doesn’t want to part with the so-called ‘Hoonicorn’, preferring it over any modern sports car on the market.

“Why should I spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars for a car that is slower than my race car?” he wondered.
