BOTB: Trainee accountant from Northwood scoops new Bentley {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A trainee accountant has scooped a £190,000 prize, including a brand-new Bentley in the online competition BOTB.

Speechless Richard Sharples from Northwood had no idea what to say when BOTB’s Christian Williams turned up to tell him he was last week’s Dream Car Competition winner and the new owner of a Bentley Bentayga V8 which came with £50,000 stuffed in the boot.

Holding back the tears, the 28-year-old said he couldn’t believe it after playing BOTB every week for the past six months.

“I usually play for the same car each week, a Jaguar E-Type, but this week I decided to mix it up and have a go on something else and went for the Bentley,” he said

“I never expected Christian to turn up at my house in it.”

The luxury SUV Richard won goes from 0 - 62mph in just 4.5 seconds and its 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine produces 542bhp and 770 Nm of torque.

Richard said: “It’s definitely an upgrade from my Volvo.

“I can’t believe it’s mine, this is literally a dream come true!”

The keen sports fan added that he would use the £50,000 cash prize towards a house deposit.

“This money will go such a long way,” he said.

“I’ve been saving to get my own place for a while now. Thank you so much BOTB.”

BOTB hands over the keys to two cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize.

Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to Las Vegas and a gaming tech bundle.

Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “Richard was definitely one of our more emotional winners - I could tell just how much this win meant to him.

“He played for an amazing prize and I’m super excited for him to get behind the wheel of the car and also start house hunting. Huge congratulations again.”
