College Student Wins 2014 Shelby GT500

Going to college can be quite expensive and leaves many young people with thousands of dollars in debt. While working between classes won’t help you get a $50,000 car anytime soon, entering an online contest might provide better chances at hitting the jackpot.

It happened to Adam Bergin of Rockledge, a 22-year-old student that entered Amazon’s “Need for Speed Car Giveaway” sweepstakes and won a 2014 Shelby GT500 with just a click of a mouse. And a stoke of luck. He had to pay about $1,200 in fees, but that’s just small change compared to the pony’s $61,060 MSRP and sales tax, which was covered by Amazon.

Bergin came to pick up his new Shelby at Paradise Ford in Cocoa in a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville with a broken driver side window. A sedan he won’t be driving anymore after discovering that the GT500 “feels like a rocket ship”.
