Utah Man Wins Lamborghini Murcielago in Contest, Crashes it 6 Hours Later [Videos]
There are many reasons why only rich people buy supercars: it’s not just the price but the cost of living with, or repairing, one. It’s a risk any second-hand car buyer is taking, as our earlier story about a HUGE Ferrari F355 engine repair bill proves.
On the other hand, if someone actually offered you a supercar, let’s say a Lamborghini, for free would you actually turn it down? Of course not; you’d just grab the keys, buckle up in the driver’s seat and fire up the engine.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to David Dopp, a 34-year old truck driver living in Santaquin, a town of 9,000 residents near Salt Lake City, Utah. He won a US$358,000 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster in a “Joe Schmo to Lambo” contest that was sponsored by Maverik convenience stores.
