If you've been a Top Gear fan for quite sometime, you may remember Richard Hammond's very unique purchase several years ago.

And, I have to say, out of the three blokes — Jeremy Clarkson and James May — Hammond always seems to have the more eclectic taste.

That's because he was one of 100 individuals to snap up a 2008 Morgan Aeromax. If my memory serves me correctly, it was still produced with wood at the time. Pretty remarkable, if I do say so myself. I believe I remember Hammond saying that although it sounds archaic, it does lend itself a different driving experience as the wood flexes during hard driving.

Sounds a bit dodgy to me; however, it could be fun in that early 1900s way.

Clearly it's something that someone with big brass and looking for something different would seek. The second owner of this vehicle? Chris Vermeulen. That name may sound familiar if you follow the world of MotoGP.

If you're actually interested, be wary for two reasons:

1) The car is located in Australia. That means it will have to pass regulations and you'll have to pay not only to ship but also all the fees associated with customs.

2) In addition, Hammond did get into a minor accident with it.
