A man from Utah had won a $350,000 Lamborghini Murcielago from a local convenience store contest, but his excitement ended when he crashed the car after just 6 hours.
Dopp took the Lamborghini for a ride and hit a patch of black ice at a turn going about 40 – 50 mph and spun out of control and damaged the rear of the vehicle.
Dopp plans to fix the Lamborghini and sell it and buy a car for his wife. Dopp paid $3,500 to insure the car for six months, and his down payment for the repairs was $1,000. According to Dopp, the car is on its way to Vegas for repairs.
Dopp won the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 on Nov. 12 at LaVell Edwards Stadium during Maverik’s “Joe Schmo to Lambo” contest. According to a spokesperson, the Lamborghini is worth more than $350,000 and its 640-horse powered engine can go from 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds.
