Carly, Sam and Freddie are hired by a car saleman's son to host a contest for a free new car to raise publicity for their lot. The winner, shockingly, is Nevel Papperman. When Freddie and Sam go to retrieve the car for him, the two find out that the owner doesn't have a son and the car did not exist. Carly, being disappointed with the news, starts to question Nevel on how he won the contest. The three find out that Nevel was the one who created the contest and the car, hiring some kid to pretend that he was the lot owner's son to set them up. But iCarly must still provide him with a car. Meanwhile, Spencer buys a prop from a movie online, but finds out that he was simply fooled by a replica, and Carly decides to exploit a loophole, saying that a "Car" is any vehicle that can go over 25 miles per hour for at least three seconds. Using that they give the prop to Nevel as his new car, to keep iCarly from getting shut down by the LCC for fraud. Nevel then tests drives the car, and crashes into a flower shop, and iCarly succeeds in prevention of getting their website shut down.
