Leicester man's expletive-filled reaction as he wins £31k Audi A1 on BOTB {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

In many parts of the world, it is believed that leap days bring bad luck, but a Leicester man has shattered that illusion after winning a new car and cash prize worth £31,000. Dumitru Liteanu won an Audi A1 Sportback worth £29,000 alongside a £2,000 cash prize courtesy of online competition specialist BOTB.

The shock proved too much for Dumitru, who has only been playing BOTB for a few weeks - and he set a record for the most bleeps during the surprise because of his colourful language. Dumitru, who works for construction and mining equipment manufacturer Caterpillar, was at work when he received a video call from BOTB presenter Christian Williams who surprised him with the news.

The 34-year-old said: “I couldn’t believe it when Christian phoned me. I have never won anything before. I was shaking and my heart was beating so fast. Later that night I also found it difficult to sleep, I was that excited,” the Midweek Lifestyle Competition winner added.

The Audi A1 Sportback features an i4 Turbo engine, 148bhp and top speed of 134mph. “I currently drive a Peugeot 107, but the Audi looks amazing,” said Dumitru.

However, he revealed he was considering taking the cash alternative which he plans to invest and treat himself to a holiday in Romania. “The cash will provide me with the opportunity to invest in some shares or go on holiday and spend time with friends and family,” Dumitru said.

BOTB hands over the keys to a dream car each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Founded by William Hindmarch in 1999, it has given away £64m worth of cars so far.

Christian said: “It’s an amazing car. I love driving these and I am sure Dumitru is going to love owning one if he decides to take it rather than the cash alternative. If he does opt for the money, I’m sure he’ll have a great break. He was clearly in shock when I told him the news he had won. I think he’s officially set a record for the most expletives in a BOTB surprise reaction!”
