If I had £100,000 what car/ cars would I buy and why?

Ok, so it’s a bit of a fantasy, dream garage, but hey, you’ve got to have dreams right. The dilemma when you love cars and classic cars like I do is what car to buy when you are in the market for a new motor.I’m constantly thinking i’d like this or that car. However, whatever you desire, there is always that little matter of cash, and balancing your other costs, what is practical versus what you desire, and finally there is the head versus heart.

So this brings me to our subject, “what car/ cars would you buy with 100,000 and why?”

Well the cars I’d have to consider (in no particular order) would be:

1960s Fiat 500


1960s Mini Cooper


Ferrari 308 GTB

Ferrari 550 Marelleno

Lamborghini Diablo


Lamborghini Countach


Lamborghini Murcielago

Maserati Granturismo S

Volvo P1800


Mercedes 190SL


Ford GT40 (replica)


Ford Mustang GT500


AC Cobra (replica)


Lotus Esprit


Aston Martin DBS


Bentley Continential (1960s)


Jaguar E-Type

If I was only going to buy one i’d go with my heart and get the Lamborghini Diablo. This is purely as growing up the cars that really caught my attention were the Ferrari Testarossa (yes because of Miami Vice), Porsche 959, Ferrari F40 and the Lamborghini Diablo. The Diablo is just nuts, and the scissor doors were really cool.

If I was looking at purely an investment opportunity, i’d rank the cars that I would expect to appreciate the most in the following order (note I’m not expert):

Lamborghini Countach
Mercedes 190SL
Ferrari 550 Marelleno

See what I mean. With 100k to spend the choices would be immense. However, when it came to parting with my money, I really want a Lamborghini, so I’d have to get a Diablo (that’s going to take between 60-70k of the budget). This then knocks out so many of the cars mentioned above, so with the remaining 30-40k I’d get a classic 1960s Fiat 500 (5-7k), 1960s Mini (12-15k) & Volvo P1800 (10k).

So there you have it. What do you think of my choices? What would you buy if you had a 100k and why?
