The 24-year-old walked away with the keys to the $25 000 car as part of a joint promotion between Northlinks Tatura and Darryl Twitt Volkswagen.

‘‘I wanted to a buy a block of land and I decided on the Northlinks Estate in Tatura,’’ Mr Lagozzino said.

‘‘They had a promotion going where if you bought a block, you also had the chance to win a car — it was just a bonus.’’

Mr Lagozzino’s girlfriend Krystal Harvey said her partner was lost for words when his name was drawn from the barrel at the Hill Top Country Club last Friday.

‘‘He literally didn’t speak for about 10 seconds, he was silent,’’ Miss Harvey said with a laugh.

Northlinks Tatura project manager Paul Ranson said the giveaway shone a spotlight on the terrific value of the estate.

‘‘We chose the Volkswagen Golf because it is a high quality car, but there is also a bit of a play on words, with the estate set around the golf course,’’ Mr Ranson said.

Darryl Twitt Motors general manager Jason Sherlock said it was fantastic to see a first home buyer receive the grand prize.

‘‘It’s great to know the car will help the winner kick-start his life,’’ Mr Sherlock said.

He said the Volkswagen Golf had been popular since it was named World Car of the Year in 2013.
