I figure I'd find some person in need who was a hard worker and down on his/her luck and give them the car. They can then do what they choose with it, sell or keep it.
Nope, will make it the fastest N54 in the world

If I won, I would send my car straight to LTMW for a complete M3 Conversion with an Mtech rear bumper, and then I would send it to Manhart Racing for a V10 M5 Engine conversion.

I would buy the cheapest rust-bucket POS car I could find, and then take it into the Aston Martin dealership and ask how much they'd give me in trade. I would act incredulous that they wouldn't offer me top dollar for the rustbucket. Then I would laugh, and pay for five DBSs in cash with a steamer trunk full of $20s.

Meee either...

But secretly I'd buy a new Tesla S, build a sweet garage, & cover it in solar panels and wind turbines.

I couldn't give away a 35 cause I don't have one...

The first thing anyone should do is try to be humble and not go crazy. The best idea is to keep everything on the down low because you don't want to be a open target to beggers, "family members", and criminals. So in the end Id keep my 3, buy some other cars. Invest the rest.

I'd let someone in the family have it. I would need all the garage space I can get and a 328i would be hella out of line with my future purchases. 458, Aventador, Veyron to start...Wouldn't work another day of my life.

i don't play lottery, but if i did and won then i would take a year off and not do anything. Think about the things i want to do without impulsely acting on it. Ok maybe i would get one nice car and take a year off traveling.

If I win, I would buy a house on a huge piece of real estate and build my own race track. Buy a bunch of used cars and invite my friends over for some door banging racing lol! One of many ideas I have on how to blow a bunch of money. I'd realistically spend 1/4 of it freely, 1/4 of it spread amongst my family, and the last half safely invested.

Thats when one of your "friends" gets a little boo-boo while racing, sues your butt off, and takes over your estate!
Thats why the super-rich are often super-miserable.

Warren Buffet put it nicely when he talked about how much money he was leaving his kids- "Enough money to do anything, but not enough to do nothing"

Not a fan of giving handouts. I would sell it incredibly cheap before I just gave it away. I figure Ive had to work for everything I have why should it be any different for anyone else?
