A builder who won £76 million on EuroMillions has bought six supercars worth a combined total of £660,000.

Andrew Clark, 51, from Boston, Lincolnshire, won the money last November.

He has since splashed out on six supercars – including a McLaren, a Porsche and a Ferrari.

However his partner, Trish Fairhurst, has decided to stick with her £20,000 Nissan Qashqai.

Self-employed Mr Clark, a former Formula 1 engineer, bought a Ferrari worth £184,000, a £120,000 Porsche 911 Turbo, a McLaren 540c at £128,000 and a £70,000 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupé.

The Sun reported that a new Range Rover and a BMW were spotted at his son Jamie’s home.

A neighbour told the newspaper: “He’s always said he was a car nut.

“It shows how down-to-earth Trish is that she’s stuck with the Nissan rather than anything flash.”

Mr Clark has kept his lucky Peugeot Expert van – he found his winning ticket tucked in the vehicle’s visor.

He didn’t know he had won the money for six weeks after stockpiling tickets in the van.

Mr Clark also bought a McLaren 540c for £128,000 with his winnings.

He has bought a new £700,000 home which has a triple garage, an indoor pool and a gym.

Mr Clark revealed that he was the EuroMillions winner just before Christmas.

Referring to himself as “the man who nearly lost £76 million”, he said he realised he was the mystery winner after he “finally gave in” and began working his way through his stash of tickets one evening.
