A wounded veteran got a brand new, customized car at the New York International Auto Show.

Toyota donated the brand new RAV4 to U.S. Army Spc. Robert Loria, who was wounded in an IED explosion in 2005. The vehicle has been outfitted with a spinner knob and a crossover directional.

The Wounded Warrior Project chose Loria, a Purple Heart recipient, to receive the donated car.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was also on hand for the special ceremony. Cuomo presented Loria with a special license plate that says “Rob” and indicates that he is a Purple Heart recipient.

Loria told Fox News that he was overwhelmed by the gift and at a loss for words.
