TRUCKER Andrew Olsen has shifted up a gear after winning one of the world’s fastest cars worth £275,000.
He usually drives a 44-ton Scania rig limited to 55mph but able to reach 60 in 33 seconds.
His new McLaren 720S Spider takes 2.8 seconds to hit 60 and has a top speed of 212mph.
Andrew, 60, won it in an online draw for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The granddad, of Caerphilly, South Wales, said: “I found out I’d won on my 60th birthday and was utterly speechless, I can’t comprehend it.
“I can honestly say it’s the best birthday present I’ve ever had.
“It couldn’t be more different from the lorry I drive for work.
“As much as I would love to keep this dream car, I will probably sell it, as the money would be life changing for my family.”
Mr Olsen is hoping his good luck continues and he can scoop the main prize, a mansion in Wimbledon worth over £3.5million.
He added: “I think what Omaze is doing is amazing because it’s raising money to help GOSH Charity keep doing the incredible work they do to help seriously ill children.”
