Oddly i know the guy with the low drag GT, he's a client of mine and his garage is very similar to your list, just a bit larger!!

 

Great choice - TBH I would be hard pressed to beat it but there is no practical car their 

Well I've got enough practical cars already. These would be extras after my lottery win. :)

If I won the lottery I'd spend the rest of my life buying cars, just to try them out for a few months.

 

But there would definitely be a:

 

e34 Alpina B10 Bi-Turbo

850csi

997.2 Turbo S as a daily/winter/bad weather car.

I would definitely take:
 

Porsche Panamera

Nismo GTR

Porsche 911 turbo

 

Talking about lotteries, I'm really not a huge expert in gambling games, but when I  discovered this Polish Lotto ( here: https://onepoundlotto.com/lotto-pl ), and tried it by purchasing a few tickets for the first time and received the numbers quickly. Odd to say but I didn't even know that playing lottery games online could be so easy.

It's amazing how your 'dream' list diminishes with age.   The late George Bests Father was once asked if he had everything he wanted, and replied, "No, but I have everything I need".

 

So it would be with me if I had a Mercedes S Class or BMW 760 for occasional use, while continuing my unrelenting  studies into the after effects of Guinness on the over 65s!

This is impossible, because I would buy a lot more than three, however :

 

Ferrari 288 GTO

Rolls Royce Ghost or Bentley Mulsanne

Alpina V8 Roadster (the one based on the Z8)

 

It would be difficult to do without a Porsche 911 Turbo (930), an Aston Martin DB9, a BMW 1M in Valencia Orange, an Alpina B10 V8s in Brass  and half a dozen more.  Glad I don't have to decide - the F10 will do for the time being!

 

I've changed my mind I think.  I would now like:

 

1. Porsche 911 turbo (930) in Guards red of course.

2. Alpina B5 in that nice Alpina green - with stripes of course.

3. Alpina B12 - the one based on the E32 Seven series, in Alpina blue - with all sorts of hidden modern upgrades.

 

Of course you all understand that in the event of a substantial win, I'm building a car museum with all my favourite cars in there.

Ferrari 288GTO

Alpina B5 BiTurbo Touring Edition 50

Bugatti Type 41, Coupe Napoleon.

 

After a three year review I would only change my first to;

 

Ferrari 288GTO or Iso Grifo.

 

Good luck finding an E32 B12 Calypso - I searched for years before giving up and buying an E38.

 

On reflection I would say by several magnitudes the E38 is the more accomplished and sophisticated car but even I can't give up on the E32 being the better looking car.

Not sure if mine are a bit tame after reading some people's choices

 

* Land Rover Defender - with a 3.9ltr V8 manual. Have seen some ex-millatary ones which I think would be cool with a bit of modernisation. Also needs to have been restored

* My E34 535i in a dream spec - full nut and bolt restoration job, individual throttle boddies, racier cam and LSD

* Alfaholics GTA-R

- a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

- an E34, either an AC Schnitzer S5 Silhouette or a Hartge H5 V12

- a 2002 Turbo from my birth year.

* E39 M5

* Alfa Romeo 8C

* Porsche 918

 

I'd get the M5 first, but my wife would say we would need to finally get a 7 seater - does the Rolls Royce Cullinan come with 7 seats??

Family Car: RS6 Avant

Day to Day Car: C63 AMG

Weekend/Special Car: 812 Superfast

 

I'd probably tweak mine to;

 

Day to day; Porsche 911 Turbo S

Family Car; E63S Wagon

SuperCar/Weekend Car; Ferrari F12/812 superfast still

 

Plus a good number of motorbikes too

Christ, you would need to win the lottery wouldn’t you.

That’s a hell of a lot of money for a car that’s so piggin ugly, just think of all the beautiful cars you could get with that sort of cash.

All the answers in this thread are so unrealistic... Here’s how it’s done, by a £161 million winner:

 

https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/scots-euromillions-winner-colin-weir-22713844?_ga=2.80354846.883372907.1611250704-1277861899.1610961337

 

a vintage Bentley Arnage, worth £10,000, a £28,250 three-year-old Jaguar F-Pace SUV, a £24,000 four-year-old Mercedes Benz E Class Estate and a 2019 Mercedes Benz V Class people carrier, valued at about £35,000.”


Ok, so he cheated and chose four, but under the circumstances I think we can let him off.

Paddy - you know what they say beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.

 

Each to their own otherwise it would be a boring world.
