I had to vote Maserati, after Brooklands Mrs Snotgobbler said she liked the badge so on that basis its ok to buy one.

Has to be the Maserati - stylish, sophisticated and understated - completely the opposite of me.

Re: Which supercar would you buy?

Funny to see the 8C is in the list (and that over 50% voted for her). Because even when you win the lottery, you can't order one as they were sold out within a week.

I thought that, then decided, I could have one with a stupendous, fantasy lottery win on the grounds that if you throw enough money at something you tend to get what you want.

Failing that, if I had a "real" decent lottery win, I'm most likely to buy a Maser.....as if it'd happen anyway!

Thumbs Up Re: Which supercar would you buy?

Hmmmmmmmm difficult one , but i would say it would be a close run thing between an Ascari A10...........Ascari

or a Koenigsegg.

Although without a doubt i'd keep my Alfa and give it some loving touches thats currently out of my budget.

Re: Which supercar would you buy?

I'd turn my 156 into a beast, that would be the first project. Try and get the 4x4 system from the 156 Crosswagon or 155 Q4 to fit and beef the power up to 500bhp or so

And I'd have a Ferrari 599 for pootling round town and posing in.

And an Ascari A10 as they are truely awesome, and a TVR of some sorts too as I have a soft spot for them.

Oh, and a Maser 3200, for the sheer coolness

And an M5 estate for taking stuff to the tip in

911 GT3 RS to start.

Then I'd go hunting for a Ferrari 288GTO. A proper Ferrari.

Not sure if it works that way with the 8C. To prevent people buying the 8C as a way to make money fast rather than driving them, Alfa added something to the contract that you're not allowed to sell the 8C within a couple of years.

Re: Which supercar would you buy?

8C - no question. Any old millionaire could buy a boring ol' Masser (sorry BF) or a Ferrari. Something a bit different for me...

Re: Which supercar would you buy?

If I could get an 8C I would do, but I would happily settle for a Ferrari if I couldn't.

I would probably have the Maserati Grantourismo as well for when I was in need of something more relaxing.

I'm with you on the 288GTO, and a 246GT Dino perhaps.....

OK so let's just lease one of an owner on a fixed rate deal for 12 months. With fantasy money you can still do what you want.
