The Price Is Right has been on a high this week after giving away expensive cars for their "Dream Car" week. In a video that has gone viral across the country, Francesca Penko won a 2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT Coupe on the CBS game show worth $120,265 - one of the biggest prizes ever given away on the show. The wedding photographer took time out for an impromptu Q&A on YouTube to answer questions about what she is doing with the car and you'll be surprised by her answers!

"Still can't believe I won! Aside from getting married and having my son...it was one of the best days of my life!" she wrote under the username "Francesca RestyleRestoreRejoice."

Francesca won the amazing car in the game "Spelling Bee" where contestants guess the prices of items within $10 of the retail price. If they are correct, they pick a card from the board and must spell "CAR." Luckily for her, she picked one of two cards that already spelled out "CAR."

Check out her win here:

What does she plan on doing with the vehicle?

"I'm selling it! I plan to buy a mini model for my desk to always remember the amazing car. And I don't know how to drive a stick so I wouldn't even be able to drive it. Hah!" she answered.

Francesca wasn't the only extremely lucky winner this week. A contestant named Samuel won a 2016 BMW 320i Sedan worth over $35,000 while spinning the famous big wheel. To win the car he had to land on the $1 space twice... and he did! No word yet on what he plans on doing with the car.

Watch his dramatic win here:

(Extra points to host Drew Carey for his multiple jumps in the air right after the arrow just made it to the $1 space)

What would you do with a car that you won on The Price Is Right? Would you sell it or keep it?
