The 21-year-old had entered a contest run by online competitions company, BOTB.

He was contacted by the firm's presenter Christian Williams who told him he was this week’s Dream Car Competition winner.

The Chatham resident wins a £50,000 Ford Ranger Raptor with £70,000 stuffed in the boot.

A stunned Kai, who works on the county's motorways, said: “Oh my gosh, I’m shaking like a leaf.

“I’m completely obsessed with these trucks, I’ve wanted one for as long as I can remember.”

He paid just £2 for his ticket to enter the competition.

He added: “Honestly, this is my dream car. I’ve been playing BOTB for about six months and I always get tickets for it - it’s such a beast.”

But it wasn’t just the car, as Christian showed when he opened the boot to reveal a briefcase stuffed with £70,000.

“Oh wow,” Kai added. “I can’t believe it - I just don’t know what to say.

"I’m only young so that kind of money is going to give me a massive advantage when it comes to getting on the property ladder.

“But I’ll definitely be treating myself, too - maybe to a nice Rolex watch or nice holiday when the borders open.

"And of course I’ll treat Ruby and the family with whatever’s left over.”

BOTB was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £37m-worth of cars so far.
