Aston Martin Mechanic Wins Lottery, Can Now Afford To Own One

An Aston Martin mechanic in the UK is now financially capable of owning the vehicles that he works on at his day job, after winning the lottery. Becoming an overnight millionaire, he is now capable of buying any number of supercars, but a brand new Vanquish Volante seems so appropriate.

Paul Wood, 54, became one of 100 winners of the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle. The Coventry man’s full prize was £1,000,000 ($1,550,649), which he will be sharing with his wife Ginny, 48, their four children, and five grandchildren.

The two learned of their winnings while sitting in their Ford Focus. According to Mr. Wood, who is an Aston Martin mechanic, everything after that was a bit of a blur. The Wood’s will now be able to afford dozens of Fords, though one Aston Martin might be a bit more becoming of the new millionaire.
