    Newly-won $494,000 Lamborghini crashed

    Facebook
    DISASTER LOOMS: David Dopp with his newly-won Lamborghini just hours before he crashed it.



    CRASHED: A Lamborghini Murcielago similar to the one that a US man crashed just six hours after he had won it.




    A US man who won a US$380,000 (NZ$494,000) Lamborghini in a contest crashed the sports car six hours after he got it.
    The lime green Murcielago Roadster is now on its way to a Las Vegas body shop for repairs.
    "Yeah, I got it on Saturday and I wrecked it on Saturday," David Dopp told KSL-TV.
    Dopp was videotaped last month jumping up and down and hollering in speechless disbelief when Maverik convenience stores contest officials announced during a college football game that he won the car.
    Dopp said he was taking friends and family on rides Saturday evening on the outskirts of town when the vehicle hit ice or loose gravel and started spinning.
    The car crashed through fence posts before coming to rest in a field.
    Dopp wasn't injured, but his wife said she was shocked.
    "My heart pretty much fell out," Annette Dopp told KSL.
    The Lamborghini has front-end damage, a punctured wheel and scratches along the passenger side. The vehicle is insured.
    David Dopp said it was strange seeing the flashy car in his humble driveway. He told ABC 4 in Salt Lake City that he plans to sell the vehicle to pay off bills and buy his wife another car - as soon as the Lamborghini's driveable again.

    He lives in a bungalow. At first I thought, "nice motor, shabby accomodation, has to be a scouser".
