Mystery Man Gives Away Audi R8 V10 to Valet Attendants (w/ video)

Two valet attendants working the Table Mountain Cableway in Cape Town, South Africa have received a little more than their usual "tip." They were handed the keys to an Audi R8 V10 - to keep. According to New Zealand's Independent Online, a mystery Cape Town businessman reportedly bestowed the supercar to the men following a dream that led him to the mountain, in an effort to spread good will.

The anonymous donor gave the car to the valets with only the request that the 525 horsepower R8 be used to help the needy. According to the report, the valet attendants were handed the car's keys, registration and an invoice. The Audi was apparently purchased in December and was paid for in full.

To keep up their end of the bargain, the pair have cut a hole in the hood for people to place donations. Around which is the message "A better future for all." Each day after their valet shift, the two men use the car to deliver food to the homeless.

When interviewed, one of the valets said "Because of the gift we have received, we want to give to others. He has taught us that we must give what we can. He has also shown us how the rich should, and can, help the poor."
