'Price Is Right' gives its biggest winner yet a $157,000 car
Come on down, Sheree Heil, and celebrate the biggest win in daytime "Price Is Right" history! The long-running game show on Monday tweeted that contestant Heil had won an Audi R8 Spyder Quattro among other prizes and cash to become the biggest winner with winnings totaling $170,345.
The black convertible is worth $157,300. The starting price for an Audi R8 is $114,900, and includes features such as automatic climate control, automatic windshield wipers and headlights, six-CD changer, parking system with rear view camera and much more.
Heil, who is from Tacoma, Wash., won her new car playing Gas Money. The game gives players the chance to not only win a vehicle, but also $10,000 cash, which Heil also snagged. As host Drew Carey announced that she was victorious, Heil screamed and ran a circle around the stage, stopping to give the model a big hug before jumping with joy and then hopping into her expensive new ride.
