Ilkley IT administrator delight after winning £63K Tesla electric car {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

AN ILKLEY man got the surprise of his life on Tuesday when he found out he had won a £63,000 Tesla electric car.

Vaseem Mohammed, 42, an IT administrator, said it was a dream come true to win the car in a competition run by Best of the Best (BOTB), a car giveaway business.

He said: "I’ve been playing for about a year, and even got the guys in my office to have a go.

"It became a regular topic of conversation, about which cars we had all picked, and what we would do if we won.

“I don’t think I ever thought I’d be this shaky! You think of all these things you might say if you win, and your mind just goes blank – I’m at a loss for words!”


BOTB surprises a winner with a dream car every week and has given away cars worth more than £19 million since it was founded in 1999.

Vaseem was working at Leeds University when the BOTB team turned up to surprise him with the Tesla Model S. His son and wife had also managed to sneak into his work to watch the surprise.

Vaseem added: "My first trip in the car will definitely be a family day out – I might even invite the more extended family. My son has already said it’s theoretically his mum’s car, so I’m sure she’ll have a say in where we all head first!”
