Wilt Chamberlain backed out of a scheduled boxing match with Muhammad Ali.

Wilt Chamberlain was a basketball player who is known for accomplishing the unthinkable: On march 2nd 1962 the 7’1’’ tall player scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in a match against the New York Knicks. The player who was born in 1936 holds several sports records to this day, including for most points scored in one season with a whopping 4,029 points!

The player was in love with sports cars, bur due to his tall frame there wasn’t enough leg room in most models on the marked. Rumor has it, that he removed the front seat of a Lamborghini and sat on a padded mat to be able to drive it. In 1996 he had enough of it and designed a custom racecar which cost him $ 750,000.
