I'd have:-
F40
Countach 5000QV (the '80s one prior to the Anniversary model).
Lambo LM002 (you'd need a lottery win for fuelling it).
Alfa GTAm
Alfa 8C

Obviously there'd be shitloads more stuff on the list in addition.

Hopefully so! Although I've heard stories of the contrary.

I'd have one of those mental off roaders like Hamster raced against the jet kayak (like a Bowler with more horsepower!)

Like the Thunderbird idea, but not sure about Veyron, you would be too scared to go fast in it.  TR6 is quite lethal.

In the dry, yes. In the wet it's a different story.

Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. Definitely a lotto win car due to a value fast approaching 500k and...well let's just say it was known as one of the original "widowmakers" thanks to a lethally snappy rear swing axle.

DB9 is an odd choice when Aston have seen fit to offer an improved model in the form of the DBS and Virage!

Any one of the hybrid* monstrosities that I will build should I win the lottery.




*And I mean hybrid in the real sense - a mixture of parts from various cars, not some jumped up poncy elecltric motor stuck to the side of the engine.

As you can tell I'm not that up on the latest Aston's, I nearly put Virage but wasn't sure if it was available yet. Somehow I don't think it will be a problem for a while yet, I won the lottery last week but 10 isn't going to get me any of my list.

E Type
BMW M1
1982 Renault F1 car (this is a lottery win, yes?)
Facel Vega HK500

As I'd also buy a GL500 as a family car and all the other cars I like are unlikely to kill me the list stops there.

I'm interested as to why so many think the Veyron would kill them. It's probably safer than being in almost any other road car.

For me it would be a collection of Edwardian and Vintage aero engined racers. One of my all time favourite's is Richard Scaldwell's GN, complete with a five litre V8 engine, dating from 1908:



These also float my boat:





I would also add a Morgan Plus 8.
