From an Apple iPad to a Caribbean cruise, the talk show queen showered each of the 275 guests in her studio audience with thousands of dollars worth of goodies.
But Winfrey created the most screams and hysteria from the audience when she announced she would give the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle during the second of the two-part episode Monday.
Winfrey, who herself drives a current model, unveiled a silhouette of the never-before-seen car before saying that everyone would get one for free when it’s released in May.
“This is one powerful, sophisticated, sexy Beetle,” Oprah said. “All of you in this audience will be the first people in the world to own one when it makes its debut next year!”
The lucky audience, who were given the keys to the new car, won’t have to worry about paying the $7,000 in taxes and fees. According to Bloomberg, Volkswagen says it will cover all the costs.
The 56-year-old host also sent her audience home with a custom set of Le Creuset cast iron pots and pans, a Sony Bravia 3D TV and several items of clothing, including sequined Ugg boo ts and a cashmere sweater
