Melbourne, Apr.15 (ANI): Former Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes, which was towed by Melbourne Police last month for "fish-tailing" is now on sale.

A Mercedes-Benz dealership in Melbourne is now auctioning the car along with the police report and a signed photo of Hamilton.

Bids for the car have so far reached 97,000 pounds, Sky News reports.

Hamilton was caught performing illegal road stunts before the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne last month and his Mercedes AMG C63 was seized.

Officers saw his burning tyres and arrested him for improper use of a motor vehicle under so-called anti-hoon laws.

Smoking tyre stunts are known in Australia as "hooning" and it was made illegal to clamp down on anti-social driving.

According to reports, Hamilton was visibly upset when his new sports car was hauled away.

He has since apologised for his behaviour, saying it was "over-exuberant and silly". (ANI)
