Top 5 Lottery Winners’ Cars of 2017 Posted: Wednesday, 2 August 2017 Sometimes we concentrate too much on facts and figures about lottery jackpots, when really, the most exciting thing is to think about what you could buy if you won a top prize! Let’s do something about that, by counting down our top 5 lottery winners’ cars for 2017 – all guaranteed to burn a serious hole in any lotto winner’s pocket. We’d certainly consider getting a few of these babies in our garage if we won a big jackpot. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – €4.2 million How better to start our list than with the most expensive street-legal car in the world this year? Swedish manufactures Koenigsegg have really gone to town on their new CCXR Trevita model. We could talk in depth about this car’s 4.8-litre, 1,004hp, dual-supercharged V8 engine – but there’s something even more remarkable about CCXR Trevita that we need to tell you about… Source: Carscoops This isn’t just a car; it’s a piece of jewellery. The CCXR Trevita is coated in what makers Koenigsegg are calling their “Proprietary Diamond Weave”. To you or me, that means diamond-coated carbon fibre! This car is shaping up to be the ultimate automotive status symbol – expect to find it parked up on some of the world’s most glamorous driveways this year. Word has it that a certain Mr Floyd Mayweather Jr. is buying one. Mercedes G650 Landaulet – €595.000 The G650 Landaulet is the latest addition to the iconic Mercedes Maybach luxury line – and we love it! When the G650 launched back in March, it went straight into the record books as the most expensive SUV in the world, thanks to its jaw-dropping €595.000 price tag. Source: Business Insider Just look at the thing – it looks like it’s driven straight out of a Dan Bilzerian Instagram post! The Landaulet’s many selling points include two-feet ground clearance, hot stone massage seat settings, and a V12 bi-turbo engine. It also promises to be a highly exclusive product, with only 99 set to be made. There’s next to no chance you’ll ever run into another car like it. Tesla Model 3 – €31.000 Lottery winners aren’t just interested in buying the most expensive cars – many also like to snap up remarkable models in a more affordable price range. After all, diamonds aren’t to everyone’s taste. The Tesla Model 3 certainly looks likely to fit that bill. With a price tag that translates into euros as approximately €31.000, the Model 3 will become the most affordable Tesla car to date when it hits American roads this winter. With a range of over 215 miles per charge, a 15-inch touchscreen and autopilot hardware as standard, this could well be the car that brings electric driving to the masses. Another key selling point of the Model 3 (and other Tesla cars) is its exceptional safety ratings. This car is one of the safest ever built, which makes it an ideal choice for families and the safety-conscious. Whether you see the Model 3 as an investment in a cleaner future or simply as a novel new addition to the automotive market, we can’t see how you’d resist buying one for €31.000 on a lotto winner’s budget! Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta — €1.9 million Now, back to the really extravagant ones! The Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta is an open-top sports car that really stands apart from the crowd, with original features including beautifully sculpted “butterfly doors”, a 6.3-liter F140 V12 engine, and the same HY-KERS kinetic energy recapture system used in Ferrari’s F1 cars. In short, it’s some of the very best bits of Ferrari in the 21st Century, all brought together in a stunningly beautiful whole. Could it be one of the sexiest cars in the world? Oh, and did we mention that it’s fast? The Aperta does 0-60mph in under 2 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 217mph. Prospective buyers can rest assured: this car offers the very pinnacle of sports performance. Lykan HyperSport — €3 million Supercars are all the rage amongst the wealthy elite of the Arab nations – so it should come as no surprise that the first ever Arab supercar has turned out to be such a triumph of opulence and engineering! Manufactured in Lebanon by W Motors, the Lykan HyperSport posts some highly impressive performance stats, from its 780hp to its breath-taking top speed of 240mph. But, like the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, perhaps the most remarkable thing about the Lykan HyperSport is its looks. Featuring headlights made with 240 15-karat diamonds and a host of other luxurious design features, the Lykan HyperSport is a veritable treasure-trove on wheels. Have we ever seen a more extraordinary combination of top-end performance and absolute design decadence? We don’t think so!
