1967-68 Shelby GT500
1967-68 Camaro SS
1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429
1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda
1980 Porsche 930 S Turbo (slantnose)
1987 Buick Grand National


or the new Ferrari 458 Italia. <---

Silly Mega, you know ricers can't afford a GT-R. If you're talking about a 1997 Integra Type-R and bolt on a 240mm turbo, then we've got some ricin' going on. Oh and don't forget those 10 in. tall aluminum spoilers.

First things first... and that's an M3 and a Z4. After that, it'll be a nicer house for my parents and then a nice house for me. Following the houses would be some investing, so I never have to work for the rest of my life and then it'll be relaxation.

I don't think I would get an M3 if I won the lottery. The M3 is not an Exotic car, don't get me wrong its a very nice car but I would go with something Exotic.

ive already thought of this. nissan GTR or porsche turbo.
if i win over 10 mill i would get a gemballa avalanche (maybe an aston dbs instead), and a cayenne GTS.
i have a 1/4 mill check coming from a lawsuit and im fine with my 335 for the next few years.

Hmm..

Lotus Exige for weekend duty, new M5 for weekdays.

And reservations at every great racing school i could find, to tighten the nut behind the wheel

You've won 4 millions, so you will get $150,000 after tax a year without a lump sum choice.

in that case, would you guys still buy an exotic car like Ferrari, Lambo, Aston, etc..?
In this case I would buy something like a Scuderia to keep me entertained, stay at my current job, and just start dumping money into savings and investments. After 20 years I would be in great shape to live very well in retirement.

Couple years into it I may buy a used Murcielago for weekends. Would keep a beater for my DD and call it good on the car front.

Oh and uh... would definitely purchase one of these:

"Mega fail" as in it's wrong to want the car that's faster in a straight line?
"Mega fail" as in it's wrong to want to go with the car company with higher reliability ratings?
"Mega fail" as in it's wrong to want the car with the far better interior (subjective but also general concensus)?
"Mega fail" as in it's wrong to want the car that is far easier to squeeze more power from?

I don't get it.... Which of these prompted the "mega fail"? Wait... I know... NO ROUNDEL.

if i had 150K per year coming in after tax, i'm guessing you get that in monthly payments or lump sum in beg of the year? Regardless, I would probably finance an M3 after my lease is up in October, and I could finally finish putting in the s50 motor into my e30 project. And maybe get a big Tacoma or F150 to haul shit around if need to or to take on camping/ski trips.
