For me, in no particular order:

Totally with the Zonda thing. An F Roadster at Silverstone Classic this year had a plaque next to it... Price new £300k, now £3m+.
I also remember seeing hard top and roadster Cinques next to each other outside The Dorchester once morning whilst passing on a coach. Well, that day I made a detour to droo jul over them and make myself late my meetings, but when was I ever going to see one ever again?

Ferrari California 250 Spider. The last sale of one with this shape lights was well in excess of £20m

59257
When I saw this for real I spent about 20 mins just gawping. Yes,I appreciate that Ferrari have always made some great cars but this was what made me think "Now I finally get the 'thing' about Ferrari!"

Lancia Aurelia B52 PF200, and I'd be very happy with hard or soft top versions. Both so quirky and beautiful at once:
59258
59259

Aston Martin DB-AR1 Zagato
59260
I had a cup of tea with one of these for half an hour.

And for Alfa, any of Enzo's Grand Prix cars:
59261
I had the pleasure of an early morning Sunday drive around central London next to and behind one of these. Also, the most amazing sounding car ever when racing. Here's a pic I took at Donington:

I realise I've missed Maserati. They have too many so are an entire category to themselves for me!

Out of reach...That would be everything :( just a few but there would be a load more in my perfect garage....
Aston fan? Can't fault you there!

BAC mono... two years ago at Goodwood FoS they had one on the company stand in a custom blue weaved carbon fibre on which I commented to the rep. Apparently it was custom carbon so the owner could park it in his garage in Japan next to his matching Konigsegg One:1. Wow!

Yep, it you have the cash BAC will do whatever you want. Everytime I see a Mono it just makes me want to jump in and drive.

Would have a collection of Astons if I could........ these two would be in there as well.....

Very rare Vantage V8 AMR PRO. Only 7 made and this is the only one I've seen come up for sale....but just short of a million it's only the very, very well healed that will see these in their garage...

That's cheap in comparison:


Don't think I'd pay that sort of money for an Aston though, even if I could.

I prefer the coupe and they can be had for around 695k or less....That’s some price mark up for the Speedster. I don’t think they built many....Dick Lovett had the Speedster, Coupe and shootingbreak in the showroom when ai was there last. I know there are customers that have all 4 variants in their garage.

Ok, I’ll play! For me, if I found myself in that position the first four cars I’d get are:

Ferrari F40 is number 1, cliché I know, but I had a model as a kid and it’s what got me into cars, and I only saw one in the flesh for the first time a few weeks ago.

Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, just love the design and the noise.
59276

Alfaholics GTA-R 290, just think they look like obscenely good fun. Going to try and buy myself a GT Junior next year and try and get into doing some Hillclimbs.
59277

And of course an MC12, but in particular this exposed blue carbon one, I bet it looks unreal in the flesh.

The Alfa T33 takes some beating Matt choose well but for me it would be the 2900B Lungo in the Alfa Museum if it had an engine

59286

Next would be a 250 GT Lusso and if anything goes why not have Steve McQueens daily driver

59287

And finally one that I still have not totally given up owning, the misunderstood De Tomasa Mangusta

I'm always surprised how all of us here have remarkably similar and quite impeccable taste. As well as everything above I'd like a Bugatti 35B or 1930s Bentley.

But the weird thing is if I won the lottery it would be a toss up between two relatively modestly priced cars:

For me it's always been about style rather than outright performance, I love classic cars
Always wanted an Austin Healey 3000

Who wouldn't want a Jensen

I thought my mustang was a big car , I parked next to one of these at a show , it's massive
