Inside £8 million lottery winner’s incredible car collection – as he blows half in FIVE MONTHS & plans to keep spending

SPLASHING out on a string of flashy supercars would force most people to budget – but this lotto winner wants to keep spending.

Just over five months ago, Kursat Yildirim, 42, won more than £8million with his lucky ticket and quickly upgraded his motors.

The ex-lag, who did time for robbery and fraud, bagged an £8.72 million lottery jackpot on September 24 last year.

He pushed the boat out with his first purchase after his windfall, buying a track-ready supercar to get around in.

Kursat – also known as Chico – spent an eye-watering £393,000 on his stunning Ferrari 448 Pista.

It boasts a top speed of 211mph from its howling 711bhp V8 engine, making it one of the fastest Ferraris ever.

The Pista produces 711bhp from its 3.9-litre V8 – enough to race from 0-62mph in just 2.85 seconds – and 0-124mph in a staggering 7.6 seconds.

Incredibly that’s quicker than the flagship Ferrari LaFerrari, that’s now selling for over £5million at auction.

The stunning motor also gets the famous Ferrari racing strips down the centre of the car, to mark it out as the “track” model.

But the lotto winner, from Dortmund in Germany, wasn’t satisfied without filling the empty space on his driveway.

Kursat couldn’t resist the tasty Porsche Turbo S2 Cabriolet, which he splurged another £218,000 on.

His jet-black droptop can roar up to 205mph with its 641bhp engine – that is 20mm wider than previous models.

The Turbo S2 Cabriolet is also 45mm wider on the whole, but remains so streamlined that it glides rather than drives.

It can hit 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds and has proved a hot commodity among car collectors.

The supercar’s rear wings ensure it stands out from the crowd while its all-black interior seals its superiority on the roads.

Kursat proudly shared a clip of the moment he picked it up from the Porsche dealership with his 1million Instagram followers.

It’s clear the former factory worker believes his extravagant purchases were worth the huge slice of his lotto winnings.

But when asked about his fancy cars, Kursat said: “I just got them for the haters. For all the envious people.”

He quit his job at a steel plant after his win in September before buying his favourite local pub.

The newly minted bachelor bought a penthouse in Istanbul and a 20-hectare plantation with 6,000 almond trees for a nuts business.

The multimillionaire also splashed out on a luxury watch during a monster spending spree at Rolex, Prada, Gucci and Versace.

He has become notorious for his riches after he began sharing snapshots of his champagne lifestyle on social media.

Kursat was previously seen strolling around with a four-foot pet alligator on a dog lead in public.

Kursat – who came to Germany at the age of 12 with his parents who were Turkish immigrants – says “everyone should know” about his rags to riches tale.

He told the German newspaper Bild: “Ninety per cent are jealous and think I don’t deserve this. But I don’t care.

“Believe me, I’ll never forget where I’m coming from. I’m working class, I’ll never become an arrogant person.”

He revealed he had shared his fortune with his parents and brothers – but soon realised others wanted to take advantage.

Speaking about the weeks following his big win, Kursat added: “Suddenly everyone’s your friend.

“People that I haven’t heard from for ages are calling up to ask for money straightaway.”

The former factory worker admits he continues to play the lottery as he “just can’t change it” after 15 years.

According to German local news, Kursat claimed he was robbed of over £8,000 back in January.

He told reporters that scammers had withdrawn the cash from ATMs in Frankfurt on several occasions.

He fumed: “I was at a loss, didn’t understand anything. I’ve never been there.”

The lotto winner is said to have been filming a TV show in Turkey about his life when he realised.
