It was never meant to be!!

A US truck driver who won a Lamborghini supercar in a competition crashed it just six hours later.

David Dopp, 34, from Santaquin, near Salt Lake City, Utah, now plans to sell the €200,000 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster.

"Yeah, I got it on Saturday and I wrecked it on Saturday," he told local reporters.

The father-of-six says he can't afford the insurance or the taxes on the lime green convertible which he won in a contest run by a local chain of shops.

Mr Dopp was taking a friend for a spin in the car when he hit black ice while taking a corner at about 45mph.

The car went through a fence and came to rest in a field about 75ft from the road with damage to both front and back ends of the car, plus a punctured oil pan and tyre.

Police say the Lamborghini's high-performance summer tires weren't suited for icy conditions. Happily for Mr Dopp, he was insured.

Andrew. :)
