A LUCKY Coventry student had the shock of a lifetime when he was handed a suitcase containing £10,000 and the keys to a brand new BMW X5.

Hengqin Hu, who is studying automotive engineering, hit the jackpot after buying a £3 ticket from super car competition company BOTB.com.

The 20-year-old, who lives in Kilby Mews, is now the proud owner of a brand new car worth £53,000.

Staff from the company turned up on the student’s doorstep last Tuesday (November 10) to drag him out of bed.
