It was a case of luck gone wrong for a US man who won a Lamborghini only to crash it just six hours after taking it home.
David Dopp won a 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, worth over $347,000, on November 12 at LaVell Stadium in Santaquin, Utah, in a competition run by Maverik petrol stations.
He received his 640 horse powered prize, on December 17, local news service ABC4 reports.
He took the car for a spin straight away, driving friends and family around his home until noise complaints forced him to head to the outskirts of Santaquin.
But the fun ended when he lost control on a corner.
"We were coming up a hill and going down a corner and we hit a patch of black ice," he said.
The vehicle spun backwards and hit a fence post.
Mr Dopp insured his car for six months for $3,470 but the down payment for the repairs is a hefty $991.
He plans to sell the vehicle once it is repaired and use the money to pay off bills and buy his wife a new car.
