AN 82-YEAR-OLD woman can put the pedal to the metal for the next year for free after winning a Quinton car dealership's competition.

June Cosnett drove away in the new Mitsubishi Mirage after being entered into a prize draw for taking the car for a test drive with Acorn Mitsubishi in Hagley Road West.

The grandmother-of-13 said: “I’m thrilled to bits. I love the car and it’s just the right size for me to get out and about and park. It’s good on fuel so I’m really pleased – it’s a lovely gift.”

And June can bun up the road safe in the knowledge that the Mirage has low emissions it’s the most environmentally friendly car in its class.

Ryan Hensman, sales manager at Acorn Mitsubishi, said: “The Mirage is a compact family car which delivers comfort, performance, excellent environmental credentials and superb fuel economy.
