8-Year Old Boy Wins Bentley Continental GT in Lottery
What was the coolest thing you ever won when you were eight years old? Maybe you got a prize from that claw game at the arcade? Maybe you even won a 50/50 raffle at a local sporting event. We’re guessing a brand new Bentley was not among those prizes, but it’s exactly what one very lucky eight-year-old boy won! According to The National (no, not the band), this boy from the United Arab Emirates won a Bentley Continental GT V8 as part of a lottery put on by Islamic Savings Bank’s Kunooz savings account. People can enter each month to win Dh1 million ($272,600), a studio apartment or a high-priced luxury car. RELATED: See more images of the Bentley Continental GT V8

The Continental GT V8 costs $193,500 in the United States, which converts to Dh 710,715. The GT V8 makes 500 horsepower from its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine. It features a lavish interior and breathtaking styling inside and out.
Too bad the boy will not be able to drive it for another decade. UAE driving age is 18. There was a recent push to lower it to 17, but was struck down. Until then, we suspect the boy’s father will be more than happy to hold on to the V8 Bentley. By then he may want the new Bentley Bentayga, which will be a used car by then.
