WATCH: East Kilbride granddad surprised with new car and £20k cash {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

An East Kilbride grandfather has scooped a brand-new Tesla car – plus a briefcase stuffed with £20,000 cash.

That’s thanks to dream car competition, BOTB.

And Andrew Boyle said he thought he was dreaming after when the competition’s ambassador turned up at his house in East Kilbride.

The 58-year-old said he’s “never won anything” in his life and was delighted with the surprise – but now he has a brand new Tesla Model 3 to show you have to be in it to win it.

He added: “This is absolutely astonishing.

“I’ve never won anything in my life. The electric Teslas absolutely fascinate me. They’re beautiful to look at, so sleek inside and the performance is just brilliant.

“But the main thing that interests me is how good they are for the environment - I’m keen to do my bit for the planet.

“I’ve never actually sat in an electric car let alone driven one - I can’t wait to take it for a spin.”

Since being founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away more than £34m worth of prizes, including supercars, cash and holidays.

The surprise was perfect timing for father-of-three Andrew who celebrates his 59th birthday next week.

He said he’s been playing BOTB for more than a year and in the past few months in particular has had his eyes on the Model 3.

But the surprise wasn’t finished there as Christian Williams opened the boot of the car to unveil £20,000 in cash for Andrew.

“This is absolutely the best day of my life,” Andrew added. “That £20,000 will be such a huge help to us although I’m sure it won’t last long with the five grandchildren.

“I’ve got some things around the house to do and some other bits, too, but I certainly don’t need to buy a new car.
