TOOWOOMBA grandmother Coral Mengel never expected she'd win a brand new car just for buying her granddaughters' Christmas presents.

Mrs Mengel won a brand new 2012 Citroen C4 Exclusive as a part of Grand Central Shopping Centre's Christmas Competition.

"I've never won anything in my life that I can remember," she said today, just before she drove the car out the door from Toowoomba Classic Autos. 

"I found out I won on Thursday. Marieke from Grand Central rang and I thought I'd won something from Goldmark because that's where I bought the presents from," she said.

"I asked her what the prize was and she said the car.

"I was very surprised."

Mrs Mengel said she wasn't sure what she was going to do with her current car, a five or six-year-old Mazda.

Grand Central Christmas Competition ran from November 17 to December 24 and customers had the chance to enter by spending $60 in one transaction at any Grand Central retailer to win the car, valued at $37,967.
