First of all, I would tell the wife that half the money, i.e. £30 million, is mine, and that I intend to spend £25 million of it on cars.

Then I would build a bigger garage.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sports
Aston one-77
Pagani Zonda Cinque #5
Gumpert Apollo, which will be traded for a Porsche 918
Ferrari FXX or Zonda R

That's in the garage, the drive would be full biggrin

Not that i spend much time imagining all of this.

Hi there,

This is easy I spend most days thinking about it biggrin: -

1) Mercedes 300SL Gullwing - definitely number 1

2) Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT or SE if I can find one

3) Porsche 959

4) Bentley EXP Speed 8 (ex Le Mans race car, but if not for sale then an ex Le Mans Audi R8)

5) Ferrari Enzo

I reckon thats around £3.5 million so just need a Range Rover and a perhaps a Bentley Mulsanne for running around day to day (these can live in the drive) and we are sorted.

Regards

Tim

Plus a GT40 and something small & fun for normal use

£60 million and you can only spend £10 million on cars? st. My missus could spend £10 million herself on Detroit muscle cars before I got anywhere near to it. For the record:

1. 312 PB for racing
2. 250 GT SWB for racing/touring
3. F50 for ultimate road thrills
4. £10k to get my Exige perfect
5. Lotus 25 R4 if I could prise it out of John Bower's hands.

Like Tim, I think about this from time to time and on any given day, its different.

Limiting it to 5 would be tough, but...
- 575 would be first - best I could find, probably manual
- F40
- F1
- Overfinch RR
- MC12


Ask me in 5 ins, and it would be
- GranTourismo GT-S, nero/avorio
- MC12
- Ferrari FF
- ML63 AMG
- Bentley Continental GT


Ask me 5 mins later it would be different again....probably more classics, a Murcie SV, a Gullwing and a Huyara.

It changes with with wind, but most likely, it would be very, very little new, more 'notable' cars already on the roads.

I would only spend £1 million on cars maximum, more than that is a waste of money IMO.

Range Rover
Renaultsport Clio 200
Ferrari F50
Nissan GTR Spec-V
Lamborghini Gallardo Performante

Then some sort of Yacht and a few houses.

In no particular order:

1. F40
2. Porsche 962
3. 250 SWB
4. Carrera GT
5. Caterham R500 with sequential box

The family car would be additional to this lot and can park on the drive. Don't care what that is as long as it's German, has at least 4 seats, reasonable performance and is wife driver friendly (i.e. has park distance controllers)

hehe

Blimey. If you want to lose money fast, a yaught is hard to beat....but with £60m, you might not be too fussed, so long as the rest is invested well. smile

There you go. You have right, and the law, on your side. Think we may have saved the op a fortune between us. Oh, I forgot, he hasn't won it yet has he?

Supercar - Pagani Zonda F Clubsport

Sportscar - Porsche GT3RS 4.0

GT car - Ferrari 599 GTO

Classic - Ferrari 250 SWB

Everyday car - Ferrari FF


That would do me quite nicely.
