"Naturally, as you can see in the video, Sheree was rather excited about her victory — as she should be; although the upcoming tax bill might dampen her mood a touch," wrote Alex Lloyd, of Yahoo! Auto's Motoramic blog
. "Even host Drew Carey couldn't help but smile incessantly, shouting, 'We just gave out a $157,000 car, everybody.'"
The Business Insider reported
that the vehicle, with its V8 engine, delivers more than 400 horsepower and it goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.
