I won a £190k Lamborghini Urus S in a 90p lottery… but I turned it down & bought a Toyota instead for key reason {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

Cory Thackstone received the birthday present of a lifetime just days after turning 22 when Christian Williams from the Best of the Best (BOTB) competition turned up with the luxury SUV.

Cory, from Market Harborough, Leicestershire, paid less than a pound per ticket to play an online spot-the-ball challenge run by BOTB and was overjoyed with his big win.

He told the Leicester Mercury: "This means everything to me. It’s going to completely change my life.

"As a family, we have had to work really, really hard for what we've got so to win this prize gives us some amazing security.

"I only turned 22 a couple of weeks ago so this is undoubtedly the best birthday present I have ever had."

However, Cory, who works as a maintenance engineer for a plastics company, actually made the decision to turn down the Lambo and claim a cash alternative instead.

This would allow him to buy his "dream car", a Toyota Supra Mark IV.

He explained: "The Lamborghini Urus S is an amazing car and I always wanted one that pops and bangs, but the one car that I have always wanted is the Toyota Supra Mark IV."

In a video on BOTB's YouTube channel, he also revealed that he has wanted the Japanese sports car since he was just 13.

He even has a tattoo on his forearm of the decal design sported on the side of the 1994 Supra driven by the beloved late actor Paul Walker in the first Fast & Furious film, released in 2001.

And Cory's win only got bigger as Christian also presented him, much to his shock, with a £50,000 cash prize and a year's supply of pizza.

The radio presenter and self-confessed petrolhead added: "A massive congratulations to Cory on winning this stunning prize, which is one of the biggest prize bundles in BOTB history.

"It’s not every day a 22-year-old wins a £190,000 Lamborghini.

"His parents told me as soon as he started the car and revved it, he would giggle like a little school boy and he didn’t disappoint me. That’s exactly what I do when I get in a car and rev it."

It comes after an influencer's new luxury car was wrecked just hours after she showed it off on social media.

Meanwhile, the owner of a microbrewery is locked in a battle with a major car company over their logo.
