A FURLOUGHED security guard from Bicester was left speechless after scooping a brand-new BMW with £30,000 cash in the boot.

Adrian Zvinca, 35, was at home last week when he received a video call from Christian Williams at online competitions company BOTB telling him he was the Midweek Car Competition winner and the proud new owner of a BMW X1 as well as thousands of pounds richer.

He said: "I can’t believe it. I have been waiting for Christian to call me for years - I’m a huge BOTB fan."

The BMW X1 that Mr Zvinca scooped in the competition reaches a top speed of 136mph and has 187bhp. 

The father-of-one said it was a 'dream come true'. 

He added: "I have a little baby boy now so I needed a bigger family car. The BMW X1 is perfect - it’s luxurious, comfortable and stylish but it’s also powerful. “I drive a Vauxhall at the moment so this is definitely an upgrade. I can’t wait."

Mr Zvinca lives with his wife, Catalina, and 11-month-old son, Matias, near Bicester Village.

After Mr Williams showed him around the car, he opened the boot to reveal a briefcase stuffed with £30,000 cash waiting for him.

He said: "I don’t know what to say. This is just unbelievable.

“We’ve been saving up for a house deposit for a while now so this will go towards that. We also might use some for a holiday once the Covid restrictions are lifted.

“Thank you 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 gaming tech bundle. 

The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £37m-worth of cars so far. 

Mr Williams, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “Adrian seems like such a lovely guy and I’m super happy for him. His reaction was amazing and I loved chatting to him. Massive congratulations again, Adrian."
