If you had $1,000,000 (USD).....

Post by BiggLou55 on Thu Mar 29, 2012 5:57 pm

I saw a thread like this on the FM4 forums, and I thought it was a great idea. The problem with the thread there was there was no discussion, so I figured I'd start it up here...

If you had $1,000,000(USD) (that's $1,000,075.29(CAD) or € 752,898.66 or £ 629,046.83 at today's Exchange Rate Wink ) to spend on any any three (3) cars, what would you buy?

Easiest decision ever - Nissan GTR, McLaren MP4-12C, and a Ferrari 458

For me I'd go with

  • 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (dual tops) w/ After-market Super Charger and slight lift - This would be the daily driver and basic all-around vehicle!
  • 2012 BMW M3 Coupe - This is another daily driver + Track day racer....
  • 2012 Audi R8 - The Everyday Supercar + Track day racer...!


The list doesn't look all that impressive, but with only 1,000,000 USD, I'd still have to deal with maintenance, insurance, gas, etc... I'd love a 458 Italia, but there's not a Ferrari dealer here, and even if there was, maintenance is stupid expensive on them...

*EDIT* I had a hard time choosing between the M3 and the new Lotus Exige, but settled on the M3... The Engine note was the deciding factor! Wink This is not as easy of a choice as it sounds... I'd also love to build a Factory 5 Cobra and Daytona, along with a Caterham 7 CSR (with the Caterham 7 CSR Superlight 2.3 Cosworth Duratec Engine)... Very Happy SO MANY CHOICES!!!! Razz

I would choose
  • Aston Martin Virage
  • Dodge Viper SRT10 (2008 and next year 2013 version)
  • Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
If you want to post something like you are from germany and you do not want german cars you are right. Very Happy

The only german car I really like is the new BMW M5 and it would be awesome to build an Ultima GTR.

I would spend it all on a TVR Cerebra Speed 12 but since there is only one left that might not be enough....

Three cars would be first an exotic... Lamborghini Aventador, or an Ascari a10

Second a daily driver... Mistubishi Evolution X SE... or barring that a new Roush Stage 3 Mustang

Third a track day car... an Ultima GTR because it would be AWESOME fun to build one... and drive its awesomeness....
Close second is an Ariel Atom 500 V8

1972 Lamborghini Miura 400 SV (...about $900K of the $1M)
1970 Dodge Challenger 340 6-pack (...about $80K)
1973 Volkswagon SuperBeetle (...yeah, whatever, it was my first car, and I miss it...it was a fun)

Ford gt (for me), the baddest current mustang (2 of these, 1 for my father the other for my grandfather), and eleanor. Yes I came from a ford family. The money left over I would use to build a locost (think caterham 7, only super diy) Very Happy
