I still remember like 5-6 years ago when a lady won a Pontiac GTO on the show that turned out to have mechanical issues and had a fucked up frame from a big wreck.

For a long while now. They had a 458 not too long ago, but the contestant lost. She's going to pay out the nose in taxes on that.

The woman looked high after winning the R8 Spyder.
A car that costs over $157000 and 10 grand in gas money are sweet prizes.

Good for her.

She can always sell it. Even at half price she is still getting a good amount of money. If it was in I would definity sell it.

Cheese and crackers!

What a waste. I am sad. She will promptly sell that car. Doubt pulling into a trailer park in that will look to good to the neighbors.

She is most definetly going to have to sell the car, the taxes on her win add up to over $50000. That means that unless she makes a lot of money, its probably not reasonable to keep the car. It's a shame really that the US tax system is like this and people win prizes that often times they cannot afford to keep.

Our system here in Canada is much better.

TPIR should consider putting another import car for one of their games just to help boost their ratings

Hmmm, a 458 Spyder and an Audi R8 Spyder.

What about a Porsche 918 Spyder? haha.

Imagine the withholding tax for the winner of that Porsche.

she's from Tacoma

pretty cool indeed and if you can afford the taxes great


i've read that some winners don't take their prizes from the show because they can't deal with the taxes and cash equivalents aren't available on many prizes

unless you have a pretty good job or saved a lot, $50k is a lot of money. I hope she's able to keep it

If she can't afford to pay the taxes, she can still keep the $10k, right?

Weird video source, but it's the only one that clearly shows the loss on a 458. Or CBS goes for broke and offers the MP4-12C Spyder.
