Once that lotto money hits the bank there is only usually one thing on a mans mind. A nice shiny new set of wheels. Of course whilst your Lamborghinis or Bugattis are all very nice they do tend to come in just a tiny bit expensive even for a lottery winner. Worry not though lads as there are still plenty of awesome alternatives that will turn heads on any high street and mark you out as a real person of substance. At under £100,000 here are 5 supercars that any lottery winner can afford.
1. Nissan GTR:
The Nissan GTR is a real man’s car, big muscly and handsome and packed full of stunning features. Including rotary control, reversing camera, intelligent key and Nissan connect a state of the art navigation system. Add to that a tyre pressure monitoring system, automatic LED headlights and a Bose sound system and you have a pretty impressive gadget package. But where this car really comes into it’s own is on the road. A top speed of over 190 mph and 0-60 in 3.2 seconds the GTR’s power and torque are impressive but it’s the road handling, braking and control are the real secrets to this supercar’s performance. If you are ever lucky enough to scoop the jackpot you really need to at the very least give this baby a test drive.
From £78,050 OTR at any Nissan dealership.
2. Porsche Boxter Spyder:
Featuring a 3.8 litre engine the Boxter Spyder produces 370 bhp. It will do 180 mph with the roof up and can accelerate to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. The combined fuel consumption figure is an impressive 28.5 mpg. The overall look and feel of the Boxter is sensational and will certainly get you noticed. But this car is also about performance. Although it comes in at more than £20,000 more than a standard model we feel that any jackpot winner could easily justify the extra money for the fun you would get from owning one of these supercars.
RRP £60,459 inc VAT from your local Porsche dealer.
3. Chevrolet Corvette Z06:
How would you love to drive the street-legal version of the Corvette C7.R professional racing car? A car that won its class at 2015’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. Then you need to choose the 2016 Corvette Z06. Advanced technologies, a race-proven bloodline, and supercharged engine make this machine one of the most desirable American supercars in this price range.
From £87, 860 OTR
4. Mercedes Benz AMG GT S
The Mercedes AMG GT is very reminiscent of the old Jaguar E-type in my opinion. The E-type was one of the most classic supercars of it’s generation. The Mercedes AMG could well be a classic of this one. It is a very very beautiful machine. Featuring a muscular 4.0-litre V8 turbo, it produces 462 hp, 600 Nm of torque and flies from 0-62 mph in just 4.0 seconds. If you opt for the Mercedes-AMG GT S the figures are even more remarkable. An up-rated 510 hp and 650 Nm, it clocks 0-62 mph in an eye-watering 3.8 seconds.
The AMG only just scrapes in under the £100K mark at £97,210 OTR
5. Jaguar XF S:
OK, so maybe not technically a supercar but still a jolly nice motor all the same. The Jaguar XF S combines V6 power and sporting luxury in breathtaking style. Sumptuous interiors, sport styling and state of the art safety technology make this a car that any lottery winner should consider. The Jaguar XF S would look majestic sitting on the driveway of your new house, or even better tootling down to Selfridges. If you’re looking for a ride that’s a little more sedate and classy than a sports car then you can’t do much better than a Jaguar XF S.
From £49,995 OTR
