How about something that costs about as much as a set of new tires for a Bugatti Veyron?  ($43,000!)

    Kirk Kerkorian, worth 4 billion bucks, drove a Ford Taurus.   LOL

    I know a guy worth $2B & his daily driver is a Camaro... but he also has a few old Ferraris that he keeps parked.

      Id probably get a restored 57 chevy with 3speed stick,white tuck and roll and an 8 track player.  Yes they are still around. The tapes are too.

      It would have to be locked up in the garage most of the time since Albuquerque averages about 500 car thefts a month.

      How about them cowboys!

        While cars will prob be the bane of me, i sometimes like to imagine i can  be reserved enough to  buy something that wouldn't look out of place in a queue of soccer moms picking up their kids.

            I plan on having no car....moving to NYC after my big win, Brooklyn to be specific, so it would be an expense I could do without. If I need a car elsewhere- well, there is a car service or just a rental.

              You forgot to mention parking...or lack there of. And, alternate side parking regulations so the Dept of Sanitation can clean the streets.

              As you mentioned, NYC has a great transit system of buses and trains as well as car rental agencies and car services in every neighborhood.

                And sometimes driving can be such a hassle...I look forward to the times I can just sit back and let someone else deal all the hum drum that comes with it.

                    Besides not wanting to stick out like a sore thumb, it doesn't matter if you are driving a Lamborghini or a Toyota Camry, you can't go faster that 5 MPH when sitting in rush-hour traffic!
