Game show contestants on The Price Is Right this week will have a chance to win a luxury car. It's the show's first-ever Dream Car Week, which is quite a surprise since it is the longest-running game show in television history.
Airing on the CBS Television Network, The Price Is Right will feature five luxury cars with a combined worth of more than $500,000, including an Audi R8 V8 Coupe Quattro, a BMW 640i convertible, a Jaguar XK touring convertible, a Mercedes-Benz SL500 convertible and a Porsche 911 Carrera. In addition to the opportunity to win a car, game show contestants also will have the chance to win more than $1 million in cash and other prizes. This week also features special guest models from The Young and The Restless daytime drama.
Hosted by Drew Carey, The Price Is Right airs weekdays at 11 a.m.-noon Eastern time and 10 a.m.-11 a.m. Pacific time.
