Surprise Delivery

Following a long night shift, delivery driver Paolo Richards was relaxing at home when a special delivery arrived in the form of Christian, who revealed that, as the latest Midweek Car Competition winner, Paolo had scooped a brand new Mercedes A45S AMG!

"I can't feel my legs!" Paolo exclaimed as Christian led him outside to unveil the £51,000 hot hatch. Asked why he chose the car, Paolo didn't hesitate in saying "its performance". We're not surprised; 415bhp certainly is powerful!

But the surprise wasn't over yet, as Christian opened the boot to reveal £15,000 cash to go alongside the car! Paolo and his partner Lucy are currently saving up for a mortgage, so this will be a massive step towards their dream house too!

Huge congrats both!

Stunned St Albans man working two jobs scoops £66,000 car-and-cash prize in competition

Jul 2021

A St Albans man working two jobs to save for a mortgage has scooped a new £51,000 Mercedes car plus £15,000 in cash in a competition.

Paolo Richards, 24, was in total disbelief after winning a Mercedes hot-hatch and a suitcase full of cash with online dream car and lifestyle competitions company BOTB.

He was ambushed at his St Albans home by BOTB presenter Christian Williams and struggled to keep his emotions in check, grabbing his chest, slumping to his knees, and finally sitting on the floor to take it all in.

You can watch the video of the big surprise below.

Best of the Best (BOTB) hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize.

The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £43m-worth of prizes so far.

Paolo was handed the keys to a Mercedes-AMG A45 S in the company’s midweek car giveaway, just moments after finishing a night shift. Partner Lucy managed to keep the win secret.

“What? I actually won? I can’t feel my legs!” said Paolo, who works for Royal Mail as well as driving delivery shifts.

And after being given a tour of the car, Paolo was drooling over its 415bhp performance.

“It’s an awesome car on another level,” he said.

“I think I’ll get it in brushed silver, and the interior is next level. Mercedes interiors are incredible – just look at the bucket seats!”

The real shock came when he opened the boot to find £15,000 in cash.
“Wow – look at all the £50 notes,” he stuttered.

“This is absolutely surreal. We’re saving for a mortgage at the minute so this is going to be a massive help!”

Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “What a great win for such a wonderful guy.

"Paolo is working his socks off to buy a house so it’s even more special when you can give someone their dream car and a deposit for a dream house all at the same time.”

BOTB first opened at Heathrow Airport in 1999, with Daveeda Shaheen scooping the first prize.

Based in Fulham, BOTB clocked up its 500th winner in 2019 and many winners continue to play, convinced they have the Midas touch.

TESTIMONIAL

Was absolutely amazing to win… and something very beneficial as well! I didn’t expect Christian of all people to be at my door asking for me. I was so shocked. Still have a big smile on my face now thinking about it! Big big big thank you! Can’t express how truly grateful I am.
