Watch moment dad-of-two wins £70k cash and £51k Mercedes {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

This was the moment a South Cheshire dad found out he had won £70,000 and a £51,000 car.

Jason Swift-Clowes, aged 50, was working from home in Congleton when he received a video-call to tell him he was the proud new owner of a Mercedes A45S AMG and thousands of pounds richer.

"You are kidding me," Jason said visibly shocked. "I can’t believe this!"
The video game designer said he’d been waiting for this day for ages after playing every week for the past three years.

"I’m absolutely car obsessed," he added. "I already know everything there is to know about this car and I’ve wanted it for such a long time."

Jason was announced as BOTB's Dream Car Competition winner after paying just £2 to enter.

He says he chose the Mercedes after vigorous research.

"I don’t care about brands necessarily, I care about the car performance," he explained. "I read all the car magazines and reviews and I chose the Mercedes because it’s just a brilliant car.

"It’s got four wheel drive, it’s fast, it’s safe but also it’s practical for the family!"

Jason is husband to Steph, aged 34, and dad to Jack, aged 25, and Finley, aged 10.

He said the money would go towards house renovations and his family.

He added: "We’ve just had our kitchen done, but the rest of the house needs to follow.

"I’m sure Steph already has a list as long as her arm of things to spend it on.

"Of course, some will go to my boys too and we’re all planning on a family holiday next year!

"Thanks so much BOTB!"

BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to Las Vegas and a Harley Davidson.

The company was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999.

BOTB presenter Christian Williams , who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: "Looks like the BOTB winners love Mercedes - this is the fourth time I’ve surprised a winner with one of these since the start of the year. They are fantastic cars though and I’m super happy for Jason. That plus the £70,000 in cash is an amazing prize. Massive congratulations again!"
