We love chatting to lottery winners about their plans for their mega millions, particularly when it comes to their fantasy shopping lists. And what's surprised us most over the years is that despite how different we all are, the different countries we come from, the different lotteries we play, underneath all of that there are striking similarities between us. We all want a better life, we all want to help our loved ones, we all want to live our wildest dreams - and we all have the need for speed!
That's right - when it comes to the top purchases made by newly minted lottery winners, new cars, luxury cars, supercars are always on the list. And not just anywhere on the list - consistently near the top as well! It turns out that winning the lottery releases the speed demon in all of us, and whether we hear of lottery winners simply upgrading their current vehicle, or going all out on a fleet of sleek muscle cars, a rags to riches lottery story almost always involves a new car somewhere along the line.
If you plead guilty to being a motorhead in the first degree, you may want to add these spectacular luxury vehicles to your lottery shopping list. Each is on the list of the world's top 10 most expensive cars, and each is guaranteed to give you the ride of your life!
Let's start with the "least expensive" car on the list - the Porsche 918 Spyder. We're using inverted commas because with a price tag of $850,000, the Spyder is anything but affordable, bringing with it a total of 887 horsepower, a top speed of 210mph and the chance to belong to one of the world's most exclusive owners' clubs. Get your hands on one of the 918 available, and you'll be the envy of everyone on your block, and beyond!
Moving along the price range, how about something a little more lavish - and a little more difficult to pronounce too! Coming in at a cool $1,300,000, the Pagani Huayra (named for the Incan God of Wind) has been clocked at top speeds of over 230mph, and is the wrong side of street legal in many countries. That hasn't stopped it from smashing the Top Gear record for fastest test track lap, or featuring in the last Transformers movie either. No wonder this beast was named 2012's Hypercar of the Year.
Looking for something even more luxurious? Then the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport might fit the bill - although with a price tag of $2,500,000, it may not fit your budget. The top choice amongst rap stars, sports stars and a host of other super stars, the Veyron is packed with 1000 horses and tops out at an exhilarating 253mph. No wonder then, that it was named Top Gear's Car of the Decade - and, thanks to its (surprising) street legal status, named as the fastest of its kind by the Guinness Book of World Records. Worth every last cent if you ask us!
Of course that's nothing compared to literally the most expensive car ever made - the Lamborghini Veneno, a futuristic homage to speed and sophistication, with a staggering sticker price of $4,000,000! If exclusivity is what you're after, the Veneno delivers it and then some, with only three models of this priceless car ever made, as part of Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Nothing says elite like a car owned by only three out of seven billion people - but perhaps if you have enough zeros in your bank account, you could persuade Lamborghini to produce a fourth.
Driven to take one of these marvels of modern engineering out for a spin? You'll need a fat bankroll first - and that's where GiantLottos.com comes in! Simply buy your lottery ticket online with us, enter your favourite of our lottery draws available, and you could soon be racing off with a multi-million win, in the driver's seat of the car of your dreams!
