Sure, if you've got the cash. He'll have to sell his old car just to get the cash for the taxes, which by the way will be based on list price.

or he could sell the new car, pay the taxes, and have himself a "cash" prize instead.

If he is that strapped, he could sell the car and make money off of it. I, for one, would be thrilled with a brand new vehicle. No monthly payments would make the one time tax more affordable. Do you know this guy? Do you know that this free vehicle is a real drain on him? So what if he has to sell his old vehicle, he has a brand spanking new one. I don't know of too many people who would consider this a problem.
