The car retails for up to $92,000.

I won a free bottle of Coke once. I had to buy another one to get the free one, but I think I still won something.

That was pretty cool, I guess. According to WTSP, a 9-year-old kid in Sarasota has made my financial windfall look pretty unimpressive.

The young boy managed to win a car. It’s not just any car, either.

He won what may be the coolest car to be built in the last decade….a Tesla. The story began when the kid bought a t-shirt from an internet star, MrBeast, while watching a video on his channel.

That purchase automatically entered Alexander Hedge in a contest with a new Tesla as the grand prize. Months passed and the boy forgot all about the contest.

After all, he had a cool shirt and genuinely enjoyed the MrBeast content, so it wasn’t really a big deal. That all changed when Alex’s good friend told him that his name had been announced on the latest video from MrBeast as a winner in the contest.

Although Hedge can’t even legally drive the car for about 7 more years, he and his family are excited about their huge win. A new Tesla Model S Performance Edition retails for about $92,000 and can be ordered with up to 1,020 horsepower.

Looks like Alexander already has a ride to the prom…in 8 years. Here’s Alexander, celebrating his huge win!

Tom Petty: His 50 Best Songs, Ranked

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
