Whilst the majority of the cars we come in to contact with on a day-by-day basis are of the rather mundane variety, there’s a whole roster of utterly beautiful, powerful and downright majestic autos out there that, alas, only winners of huge multinational lotteries such as EuroMillions or online casinos like RubyFortune.com can ever hope to afford. We can always dream, however, so imagine if you had won a stratospheric sum playing online poker or picking numbers; which awesome cars would you choose to own?
Recently sold for an astronomical $38,115,000 (£24,559,552), the Ferrari 250 GTO, produced for the racing circuit between 1962 and 1964, is a car that even the biggest lottery winners simply cannot afford, thanks to there having been only 39 models ever produced. Despite being over fifty years old, the fine machine’s 3.0 litre V-12 (also used in the 250 Testa Rossa) can produce 300 horsepower.
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse
The fastest car in the world is one that any jackpot winner should firmly have in their sights. 0-60 in a blindingly fast 2.6 seconds. 1,200 horsepower. A top speed of 255 mph. This stunning automobile is, as one might expect, ridiculously expensive, with models weighing in at over $2 million (£1,288,708) a piece!
Aston Martin One-77
With only 77 models produced between 2009 and 2012, this Aston Martin hypercar is a monster of power, coming fitted with a 7.3 litre, V-12 engine that can propel the user to magnificent 220 mph speeds, also thanks to a body produced using lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium.
Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition
Costing a cool $170,000 (£109,540), the Range Rover Autobiography Ultimate Edition is around $50,000 (£32,217) more expensive than the next most expensive model, and perhaps the most appropriate steed for newfound manor house owners to swan around their grounds in! Although the machine is indeed powerful, it’s the sumptuous interior of the Autobiography that begs mentioning, with enormous seats, mounted iPads, a drink chiller, and a teak-floored boot in which one can store luggage.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
With a 563-horsepower, 6.2 litre V-8 engine that pushes the dial to a nail-biting 197 mph, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a beast of a machine, and one that, thanks to a hefty price tag of $185,575 (£119,575), could only safely be owned by those with wealth. For that sum you get 0-60 in 3.8 seconds, plus a pair of truly gratifying gull wing doors, akin to Mercedes’ 1950s 300SL!
