An IT technician from Greenford was left speechless after scooping a £51,000 Audi plus £5,000 in cash thanks to online competitions company BOTB.
Phupu Sherpa, 28, was on holiday in Scotland when BOTB presenter Sean Hall video called to tell him he was this week’s Midweek Car Competition winner and the new owner of a Audi Q4 E-tron plus £5,000 richer – botb.com/winners/mw3521
“I don’t believe it,” he laughed, having spent just £1.40 on his ticket to enter.
The 28-year-old was on holiday with his wife, Susmita, and their friends celebrating her 28th birthday.
“I can’t believe I won on Susmita’s birthday,” he added. “What a way to celebrate!”
Phupu, who’s only been playing the weekly competition for two months, said he played for the electric car because he lives in London.
“I’ve always loved Audis,” he explained. “And I’ve wanted an electric car for a while so this is the best news!”
And with the Londener currently driving a Vauxhall Astra, it’s certainly an upgrade when driving around the capital.
But the surprise wasn’t finished there as Sean went on to reveal £5,000 cash hidden in the boot.
“It gets better and better,” he laughed. “This will go towards our house deposit as we’re currently trying to get on the housing ladder!”
BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as the lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to the Arctic and £15,000 in cash.
The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £44m worth of cars so far.
BOTB presenter Sean said: “It was a pleasure to give Phupu and Susmita the good news. Phupu played for a fantastic prize and I’m super happy for him! Massive congratulations again!”
