London songwriter scoops £162,000 prize including stunning Audi R8 {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

For a man who makes a living out of writing songs, Junior Kusi was surprisingly quiet when he was ambushed with a £132,000 Audi R8 and £50,000 in cash after winning the top prize with competitions company BOTB.

The 27-year-old from Mitcham had just woken up when BOTB’s Christian Williams arrived to tell him he was this week’s Dream Car Competition winner and the new owner of the V10 two-seater plus life-changingly richer – botb.com/winners/dc4521

“This is unreal,” he said. “I don’t believe it.”

Junior, who paid just just £3.50 for his ticket to enter the competition, said he’s been playing BOTB for more than a year because he finds it ‘fun’.

“I play BOTB because I enjoy it, not because I think I’m going to win,” he laughed. “I never in a million years expected to win – especially such a huge prize!

“I played for the Audi R8 because I’ve always loved it as a car – I’ve test driven it a few times, too. I saw it on the line up and I thought, I’ve just got to go for it.”

The Audi R8 is certainly an upgrade from Junior’s Ford Focus with its V10 engine producing 563 bhp.

“It’s quite a bit faster than my current car,” he laughed. “Thank you so much BOTB!”

But the surprise wasn’t finished there as £50,000 was waiting for Junior in the boot.

At the moment Junior lives in Mitcham with his family but said he’d use the cash to get on the property 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.

Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “It was a privilege to meet Junior – what a lovely guy! He’s played for an amazing prize and his face was an absolute picture when he realised what was happening – massive congratulations again!”
