UAE cabbie wins Lamborghini, sells it days later to start a business

August 27, 2012

A UAE cab driver who scooped a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 in a raffle draw has sold the super car and said he intends to start his own food delivery business, UAE daily The National reported on Monday.

Indian expat, Soupi Abdulla, 44, won the 750,000 AED ($204,197) car at a mall in Al Ain last week.

But after two days his friends and family set out to find a buyer for the car and shortly after it was sold for 550,000 AED, the report added.

“That Lamborghini is finished for me. I’ll buy a new car for a low price, maybe a Nissan Sunny or Toyota Corolla,” he said.

He said he now plans to set up a food delivery business with his brothers, but not before he has taken a two break back home in India.
