London, England - World champion Lewis Hamilton expressed interest in buying stunt driver Ken Block's modified Ford Mustang.
One of the most fascinating cars in 48-year-old Block's garage is a custom and totally-unique 1965 Ford Mustang, punching 630kW and specially prepared for one of his famous Gymkhana videos.
Hefty asking price
Block told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport: "Lewis Hamilton wanted to buy the Mustang from me.
"When he heard the price, he suddenly lost interest."
Block suggested that he raised the price to be unattainable because he actually doesn't want to part with the so-called 'Hoonicorn', preferring it over any modern sports car on the market.
Block said: "Why should I spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars for a car that is slower than my race car?"
