Knutsford petrolhead makes the switch to electric after winning £116,000 Porsche

A Cheshire petrolhead looking to take the jump over the electric car has won Porsche Taycan Turbo worth £116,000, plus £20,000 in cash, thanks to dream car competition, BOTB.

Nolan Brew, who lives in Knutsford, was surprised by the BOTB presenter Christian Williams on his doorstep this morning.

“I just could not believe it, I only played BOTB for the first time this week,” said the 45-year-old who runs a cushion manufacturing business. “I am off the scale delighted.”


Nolan said he had been looking to make the switch to the electric car to be more green, and that this prize came along at the right time.“I have been looking at the Porsche Taycan for a while, and that is why I decided to play,” he said.“This is the first real electric car, which is an electric car for drivers. I had looked at some others, but while they are quite executive, they don’t have that x-factor. This Porsche is still very much a Porsche, but with an electric engine.”

With the £20,000 in cash which he has won, Nolan said he will be using it for practical purposes during the Coronavirus crisis. “We are in pretty uncertain times, so it would make sense to make sure we use that money sensibly,” he said. 


BOTB presenter Christian Williams surprises winners all over the world every week.


He said: “We love surprising people, and clearly this win meant a lot to Nolan, who can now make the switch to electric.”

Since being founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away over £29m worth  of prizes.  


Listed on the stock market, BOTB has a high-profile stand at airports although most people  play online at
