For some reason raffling cars over social media has been a popular way of getting attention. The allure of getting a chance to win an entire car for a fraction of its actual cost means there would be plenty of folks willing to take a shot. With Omaze’s latest raffle however, we’re not just talking about any car; An Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is up for grabs – and more.
That’s right, provided a donation is made to the Wings For Life UK Spinal Research Foundation you will get a chance to win Aston Martin’s latest 700+PS hulking beast of a car. On top of that, an all-expense paid trip to Abu Dhabi for the Abu Dhabi GP makes for a perfect icing on the Aston Martin cake.
Everything from a 4-star hotel, to pit-lane passes, and even a hot lap alongside Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen or Alex Albon for you and one guest are all in the cards to make for a truly memorable experience.
A donation as small as $10 all the way to a sizeable $5,000 can be made to get more chances of winning Aston Martin’s crowing supercar. All simple and straightforward, but then upon reading the fine print below their page we were met with a huge letdown:
“Winners must not be residents of Azerbaijan, Belgium, Brazil, Cuba, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, North Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Sudan, Syria, Thailand, Turkey, or Vietnam.”
Nope, it turns out we will be missing out on what would otherwise be a golden opportunity for a good cause. That’s too bad though, because surely a good number of folks here would gladly fork over a fair sum to score a DBS Superleggera – taxes paid and all.
