Ok... so what if YOU had won the Powerball?

$58m mates...

If you had won it, which car would you get? i mean seriously considering comfort, practicality and all that jazz. something you would be able to buy and live with for at least the next 5 years?

my money would be on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster, with the new Ferrari California a distant second.

Well, i'd reccomend starting by putting this thread into the Official Off Topic Thread.

With $48m i'd spend $8m on a ferrari F430 spyder, an opera house apartment and a vacation. The rest would be going straight into my hedge fund, so it could grow a few more 0's after it in quick fashion, so i could edge past Bondy on the rich list.

Invest it and live off the returns after having a little splurge.

You could optionally look at staying at work to pi$$ off your co-workers.

Hehehe i like the sound of that!

What about quitting, then with the hedge fund you start up renting out the floor above your old co-workers for the hedge fund, then rocking up in the ferrari f430 spyder wearning a tank top, board shorts and thongs to work each day. That's the dream. Oh & don't forget the supermodel girlfriend and Gulfstream G550 (think you'd want to have upwards of $50m to live that life though). [Don't we all wish we were Henry Kravis?]

The guy who bought my place in the Whitsundays has a Gulfstream GV. I think they cost around 1/10th of their purchase price to run a year from memory.

One of those would be alright, although I reckon it'd wipe out the PB jackpot unfortunately.

If I won the lot though as I said in the other thread, invest half of it. So wiping out $28+m.

I'd then buy a nice big acreage plot of land in my area and either knock down the place that's on there or build on the vacant block, probably around 120-150 squares of living area with enough garage spacing for 10 cars along with detailing bay and hoists, tennis court, in door and out door pools, in door basketball court and a good size cellar.

Then fill it with cars.

- Aston Martin DBS
- Lambo Gallardo
- Bentley Arnage "R"
- Porsche 997 TT
- Porsche 356 C
- Range Rover
- R35 GTR

Then live off the interest.

Sounds good Ben, but there was one thing you missed, your own personal GP circuit.

Hehe, yeah one of those would be alright! Maybe I could buy Amaroo Park back and dig the track up from underneath all the weeds!

$50mm is unfortunately only working wealthy..

$50mm purchase of an index linked annuity probably reaps real returns around 3-4% $1.5-2.0mm p.a pre-tax. Nice income if you're living in a paid-for house but it isn't yacht/jet money.

Even if you run a good hedge fund at 10% real return, after-tax you're barely into Netjets and a couple of weeks a year of med/carribean yacht charter... plus your capital is at risk...

To be fair.. I could get used to it.
