What one car would you buy if you win $122M this Friday? I would probably spent between $120K-$200K on one nice car. After all we live only once. Some would rather have few less expensive then one very expensive.

    What kind of car I would buy depends on the amount of money I won. If I'm left with around $20 million after taxes, I would only spend around $70,000 on a car. Because I do want the money to last.

    If I'm left with around $40 million after taxes, I would buy the all new BMW M5 coming out this fall (around $100,000) and/or a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG.

    If I win anything around $70 million after taxes, the one car I would want to buy is the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren which would cost around $470,000 after all accessories and packages.

    I like cars very much but at the same time I realize the extra expenses that would come along with these expensive cars (gas, insurance, etc). So after buying these cars I would probably buy a Toyota Prius. Because after all, it would be too weird driving a sports car to the grocery store.

      My dream car is a Volvo XC70. I plan to get one of these (or something like it) one day whether I win the lottery or not. A lottery win would just make obtaining it so much easier. -Bonnie

              i could think of probably 40 cars that i would own.

             i like things that are unique.  cars that not too many people have.

            so for me, it would probably be something older.  i like the resto-rods.  the older cars that they completely renew all the running gear,  and replace it with a completely new chassis/motor.  new car,  old school looks.

            plus i would like to buy a honda insight and drop a big engine in it.  hot rod it up.  the insight is a gas/electric hybrid.  now that would be unique (and would enrage the environmentalists).  great fun...

            (and probably about 10 motorcycles)


                        "i am .........."meant to"       

            P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                     until further notice,  it's  france everyday

              With that much money, cars would be just like Lay's potatoe chips, "No one can buy just one!!!!"


              1. Mecedes-Benz CLS500 (sedan)

              2. Mecedes-Benz ML500 (SUV)

              3. Chevy Corvette (sports car)

                I would buy 3 cars

                Hummer, a pimped out F-150, and a Nissan Titan.  Go BIG or go home people.  lol.

                How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    $10,000 was too high for me. I plan on being cheap and hiding my money in books on shelves and in meat in the freezer. I'm going to get a car about 5 years old preferably a foreign brand like Honda or Toyota. I wish I could get a Yugo.

                    I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                      I dream of buying a Cadillac Escalade.  I love driving my Mazda Protege but I would like to be high enough to see over most vehicles in front of me.  I live in a pretty rough neighborhood, so a Ford Explorer is probably more realistic.

                          Camry's are excellent cars. If Toyota still put out the Camry station wagon, that would be at the top of my list. But as they don't I'm going for that Volvo. -Bonnie
