Jared Leto got the ride of his life during a NASCAR experience and now he actually wants to buy the custom pink stock car that he was surprised with.
The singer was in Fort Worth, Texas on Wednesday at Texas Motor Speedway where they unveiled a custom wrapped Thirty Seconds to Mars album stock car.
The VP of Communications for the speedway, Mike Zizzo, tells The Blast after taking the car for a quick 160 mph spin with Xfinity driver Tyler Reddick, Leto mentioned that he wanted to take the car home and put it in his living room. The staff laughed off the comments, but Leto wasn’t kidding.
Moments later, his assistant gave out the singer’s business card and said he was serious about buying the car.
Zizzo says the custom wrap was done by 360 Wraps, a local Texas company. From concept to delivery, the whole thing took just two short weeks, which we’re told was a bit more challenging considering the company is used to wrapping passenger cars, not stock cars.
Leto was at the speedway as part of his “Mars Across America” promotion for the band’s upcoming album which drops Friday.
As far as buying the car, we’re told that’s definitely a possibility.
