COLCHESTER, England, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- A British teen who picked up a cool $2 million in lottery winnings says she'll share her bounty with her sister by giving her a hand-me-down Ford Fiesta.

Eloise Hutchinson, 19, says she'll buy a top-of-the-line Fiesta to replace the $1,000 beater she plans to give Sophie, 17, who doesn't drive, The (London) Sun reported Tuesday.

Hutchinson says she'll throw in driving lessons.

"That car cost me more to fix than you could believe," the 19-year-old said. "I've spent so much on it, I might as well give it to her for a first car. I'm not going to miss it."

For the record, Sophie Hutchinson asked for a Range Rover Sport.

Also on Eloise Hutchinson's shopping list is a five-bedroom house and a vacation to Jamaica with her boyfriend, The Sun said. She already bought an iPad and a new dress.

Hutchinson, who lives with her sister and mother in Colchester, struck pay dirt Dec. 30, but didn't realize her good fortune until New Year's Day.

"I asked [her boyfriend] to check my ticket," she said. "I thought I'd got four numbers but he told me I had all of them."
