You win the lottery, what do you buy?
depends on how much – but lets assume we are talking £100 million + euromillions win –
Really nice family home near where I live now (North Kent)
Flat overlooking the Thames, near tower bridge – for nights out in London
Cars – starting with an Audi RS6, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a Discovery 4.
Little place in the Alps for summer biking and winter snow.
motor home for festivals/events
I’d then quietly give a fair bit to various charities, including the one run by the doctor who is presently treating my little brother’s incurable cancer – because without him, everything above won’t be as good.Posted 5 years agoSandwichSubscriber
As Freeagent for the big Euro win. Just enough to the children that they need to carry on and make something of themselves in the region of 250k each.Posted 5 years ago
I reckon I can manage on £20 million and the local hospices get the rest. (Family has a loyalty card with Ipswich hospice or so it seems).Jolly Green GiantMember
Alpine retreat (Meribel)
Singer 911 or Eagle E type Speedster
Unlimited access to the Nurburgring
Audi RS 6 daily driver
Weekday residence in Primrose Hill
Weekend/Family pad /country residence in rural Dorset
Pay off brothers and girlfriends mortgages
Buy myself a workshop with a wood turning lathe
Increase bikes to N + 11.
That`d do for starters.Posted 5 years agojohndohMember
If won the lottery I would build a silly stupid engine, gearbox inside something akin to a touring car. (but still with the ratty exterior)
This is my brother-in-law’s car – it looks a heap but it has a Chevy V8 in it and sounds like it wants to eat you when it is started up 🙂
Ohh, and this is his too…

I’d have to buy a farm in the Yorkshire dales and keep pigs, ride bikes mess round with land rovers and drink beer in the warmer months, I’m lucky enough to have all the bikes and cars I want, So I’d spend the rest taking or sending my friends and family on fab hols with a first port of call being a month in the Rockies snowboarding.barrytechnoMember
Just this to start with 😆Posted 5 years agoslowmartMember
Some place in Mallorca
A bike shop which was next to my cake shop with my personal whore house above them both.
Training coaches who just happened to be fit, firm and female.
Another business franchise 80-100 miles away and then another equi distant so I would have a 3 day loop with accommodation and recreational needs taken care of.Posted 5 years agoTuckerUKMember
You win the lottery, what do you buy?
Depends on the amount surely?
Over £6 million is properly life changing, and a lot of things I’d buy then (e.g. Mk.Vb Spitfire) wouldn’t be realistic with less money.
But yeah, nicely fitted out workshop/machine shop/garage would be up at the top of the list. Indoor shooting range too (for those windy days).Posted 5 years agoalpinMember
