The big-spending lottery millionaire, nicknamed Chico to followers, has already splashed out on VIP motors for himself in the past, including a GBP 392,000 V8 Ferrari 448 Pista and a Porsche Turbo S Cabriolet.

But now Chico, whose real name is Kursat Yildirim, from Dortmund, in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, decided he wanted to share some of his good fortune with his brother Yunus, 35, by buying him a Ferrari GTB 296 that packs a whopping 839 bhp.

Chico made headlines when he won an astonishing EUR 9.9 million (GBP 8.72 million) playing the lottery on 24th September last year.

Speaking about the generous gift for his brother, Chico, 42, told local media: “My brother was always there for me when I was feeling bad. I’m happy to be able to give something back.”

Yunus was reportedly all smiles after Chico surprised him with the high-end luxury sports car.

Chico reportedly revealed that the next car he is going to buy is going to be a Lamborghini Revuelto, and this one will be for himself.

The former criminal dumped his girlfriend and quit his job as a crane operator before going on a massive spending fee, splashing out more than EUR 1.5 million (GBP 1.3 million) within a month after the big win.

Last month, he admitted that he still lives with his mum.

He said that he loves being welcomed by his mum when he comes home, saying that it was too expensive to buy property in Germany even for him.

He said: “I am happy living with my parents. They are here only for half the year anyway, as they spend the other half living in Turkey. But the bottom line is that with the price of houses in Dortmund, it’s just not worth it to buy.”
