    If you had £100K to buy many cars

    We've probably all seen the Piston heads 100K garage thread so how about trying out own.
    What would you buy if you had £100K to spend on used cars without you're wives/girlfriends/boyfriends/husbands complaining and if you had the space. Consider cars for all occasions and if you can post links:

    I'll start off:

    For me I would buy just three cars:

    1. For my daily commute
    Tesla Model S: £58K. Powerful, quiet and I like the idea of autpilot mode on the motorways or at the end of there day when I'm tired and not as alert.
    http://www2.autotrader.co.uk/classif...ice-asc&page=1

    2. For ferrying the kids around
    Mercedes GL500: £15K. Powerful, big and comfortable. Seven seats. As it's so vast, it's possible I wouldn't hear the kids in the back
    http://www2.autotrader.co.uk/classif...ice-asc&page=1

    3. As a bit of fun.
    Corvette £20K. Powerful, made of plastic so won't rust
    http://www2.autotrader.co.uk/classif...ice-asc&page=1

    4. Something to tinker with when I'm not washing all the black cars
    Jaguar XKR (X100). Stylish, has soul but will need work
    http://www2.autotrader.co.uk/classif...so410zd&page=1

    Amount left over £100
    Jaguar XK8 (X100) - 1998 4.0 V8
    Is a dream a lie that don't come true, or is it something worse?

    I would have to do a bit of negotiating because I would be £480 over but thats doable I reckon! I would keep the XJ SS too though...

    If you had £100K to buy many cars

    So, I'd start off with a fairly modest (probably one without the red interior) 911 at 42k.

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01612190709044



    A looney GT-R at 41k.

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01610269142338



    'Sensible' VW Touareg R50 tractor for carrying stuff/people/towing at 16k.

    http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01611109639182


    Spend the rest on mods.

    I'd start of by buying Ancill's TVR. I'd overlook the depreciation & pay him the £15,000 he originally paid for it + the £1073.14 he's spent on restoration & modifications.

    After that would come Wilf's Stag..........that's another tenner gone.

    How much have I got left?

    Hmm, a nice V12 Vantage would tick the box for my daily driver, a few years old so that would take care of £80k and a Lotus Exige s2 for a bit of fun on the track

    If you had £100K to buy many cars

    First up XFR-S Sportbrake. None currently on Autotrader or the Jaguar site but the last time I looked there were a couple around £45k.

    Next would be a Lotus Exige S. Around £43k. http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...01611149746592

    £2k for my current Fiat Punto GT. I'm guessing I'll need to list that even though it's currently mine.

    That leaves me £10k. Not sure what to spend that on. Maybe tyres. Yes definitely tyres.

    I would love to Buy an Aston Martin, Vantage, Used Obviously as all problems would be ironed out,

    Spend a fair amount having tha XJ Sovereign brought back up to factory spec,

    The purchase a nice little ( wait for it ), Fiat 500. Just to race round the potholes of Redditch doing the shopping. ( If you have seen the way they park in Tesco's you would understand that ).

    Yep they're a modern classic. Spider with v6 is actually quite rare. I'd want red and tan..

    Oh and if Alfa put the 2.9l TT engine from the new quadrifoglio into a coupe/spider body I may be tempted... Alfa 6c??

    There really were loads when I was looking, but they probably all have died of head gasket failures like my Alfa did. I have to say there is something very special about an Alfa.

    I like the look of the 4c and 8c.
    I've seen a the new Maserati Levante driving around near me (as we have a Ferrari / Maserati garage a few miles down the road) - not overly impressed with the styling. I've also seen one of those Bentley Bentayga's on the road also, it is huge but looks like somebody hit it with an ugly tree, let alone a stick.
