For all you petrol heads
Right we all have our 5 car garage IE when we win the lottery what 5 cars would you buy
1. Lancia Stratos
2.Lotus Esprit Turbo
3.Ford Mustang any variation
4. Renault 5 Turbo
5. Gumpert Apollo S
I don't fit in the 1st 2. I have tried..
mustang ? Nope I live in a a country with corners
R5. Ok I suppose. Especially when driven by John Price
So what would you have?
I just squeeze into the Esprit but Startos no chance lol
Mustang, Just because I hired one in USA and it was ace
1. BMW M5 Touring (one of them needs to be reasonably practical)
2. Porsche 911, old-school 80's one
3. McLaren MP4-12C
4. 1970 Dodge Challenger (white)
5. Caterham 7
Good call on the Dodge that would have been car 6
New Mclaren is proper nice. had a go in the F1 as I used to live in Woking where they were made.
Love the Caterham and probably pick one up for under 10000 now, not good for kids though
Hmm I can only think of one Nissan R33 Skyline - Im easily pleased.
Grendal you seemed to be easily pleased Hyuandai xi35?
Happily have my A3 that I chopped in last year back.....
I've read the maps in a Stratos and a 6R4 but being over 6ft3 neither was comfy...
did a track day in an Audi R8 ( my OH sorted it for my 50th ) but hardly practical
a landdrover as i would live on a farm type property with my lottery winnings.
a family car.....any reliable one
and the other 3 i could fill with bikes
Vw corrado vr6
Old style mini cooper
Good post vicar!!
1. Aston Martin DBS (manual transmission)
2. Land rover discovery (like seren I would live on a farm)
3. Ferrari F12
4. vauxhall Astra mk4 GSI arden blue
5. It's got to be a good track car, like a caterham OR that snazzy mono that was on top gear last week.
Very easily pleased!!!!
Only 5? If I win the lottery I'm going to need an ex NCP car park!
Off the top of my head, definitely a Citroen SM, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a mk1 Capri (either a 3000E or a RS3100), an early 2 door Range Rover, Audi RS6 Avant and I would keep my current Audi A4 for old times sake. Still loads more though, some classic Mercs, Maserati Granturismo.....
Cologne arches on the RS3100 ?
A bit tail happy the MK1 3 litre Capri.
Bag of cement in the boot and a prayer book for when the brakes faded out.
Either of these - I met a Belgian family in Rwanda with one - they were taking their 2 young kids round Africa for 2 years, to give them a 'proper' education before they started school! Perfect for long trips in far-flung places. Theirs had a quad-bike on a lift on the back!
2. Landrover 130 camper
3.1965 Porsche 456a (I had one 10 years ago, sold it, still regret it)
4. Audi S8
5. Maserati Gran Turismo
Standard arches thanks! I had a 73 3000GT but it was a right old rust bucket but went really well (probably a lack of weight due to tin worm). Mind you I'm not sure about not having power steering!
5 car garage. That's going to be a tough call. Win the lottery? Or share a lottery win? Let's say you only have a million to spend. A Ferrari 250GTO is too pricey, you'd have to allow 10 to 15 million to prize one of the 39 out of the hands of the likes of Chris Evans or Nick Mason. Chris might part with his one day, but Nick isn't dead. Seeing as that's not available...
1) Jaguar E type convertible, but which series? Straight 6 or V12?
2) Lotus Elan 1966 coupe.
3) Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 3.
4) VW camper van.
5) BMW 528i or Mercedes C350. Gotta have a shopping car.
Friends of mine will be shocked that I don't list an MGB, despite owning one for for 30 years. I don't need to buy another, I've got no plans to part with mine!
Suzuki GSXR1000Bimota SB6Harris Magnum 4Buell 1125Spondon GSXR 750
two wheeled cars. and at least I can afford them all, just can't afford the petrol.
