In an ideal world, we would all have enough money to buy the biggest house, the nicest cars and go on the most luxurious of holidays. While some have achieved that already, others can try their luck by playing the Indian lottery. Lottery, unlike sports betting or online casinos, has been legalised in India. In fact, there are some states such as Kerala which run state-owned lottery. However, now people in India can go beyond the local lotteries and take their chances with international lotteries as well. There are tons of offshore companies that have made their way into the sub-continent that allow you to take part in lotteries from around the world including the extremely popular PowerBall and MegaMillions. The big question is that if you were to win the jackpot either by play India lottery or an international lottery, how would you spend the money?
In this article, we talk about five cars that you can spend your lottery money on that will make you look sophisticated to the onlookers. Without further ado let’s start off the list of the cars you should buy after winning the lottery.
Bentley Continental GT
Just the word Bentley should be enough for you to jump straight into this car. However, unlike the Bentley’s of the past which were utilised by the more senior folk, this Bentley is mostly for the young crowd. With a 6 litre – W12 engine, this car offers both speed and luxury in equal measure. Your passengers can sip the finest of champagnes while you speed down the motorway at 300 kilometres per hour! The best bit is that the car has what is described as flawless styling and will surely go down as one of the modern classics.
Porsche have been around for aeons and are considered to be masters of design evolution. Their designs don’t undergo radical shifts similar to other German brands such as BMW but seem to evolve in a more subtle manner. Unfortunately for Porsche, while the first Panamera was no doubt a capable car, the styling was a bit of a miss. Over the years, this car has also undergone that subtle styling evolution and the latest incarnation is drop-dead gorgeous. From a mechanical point of view, the car’s engine, suspension and other fiddly bits are typically German i.e they will still be working after you have driven the car over 100,000 kilometres. Not a bad car to buy after winning the lottery especially if you have a big family.
Aston Martin DB5
We are going a bit old school here and are listing a car that was made famous by the world’s classiest spy aka James Bond 007. While Aston Martin has come a long way with the styling and general functioning of their cars, people always seem to revert back to the DB5 as the glory days of the British company. The styling is in a class of its own and none of the modern machines in this list can come close to it. While the drive can be a bit bumpy it does add to the overall charm and appeal of the car. If you are going to play India lottery and win a good amount, then there is no better way to look classy than bagging yourself an old and restored Aston Martin. Just keep in mind that despite the lottery winnings you will be looking to fork out quite a bit of money for this beauty.
Rolls Royce Phantom
Last and most definitely not least on the list is the Rolls Royce. No automotive brand can come close to the level of prestige and sophistication this brand projects. Starting off as a British brand, the company has since been acquired by the Germans and all for the better. The old cars were subject to multiple breakdowns but the new models have been given a German makeover which means they are now bulletproof and will survive whatever you have to throw at them. There are simply too many things to list that make this car stand out from the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ to the ‘Starry headliner’, this in our opinion is the definitive car to buy if you end up hitting the jackpot.
