Go out, travel, and explore without worrying about financial issues.

Give 4 million to my parents, 1 million to my sister. Buy a house, set aside 500.000 to spend on whatever the f*ck I want, save the rest.

What would I do?

 

I'd buy a decent 4000sqft $350,000-$500,000 house somewhere between the hills of near Bandera and the community of Stone Oak with a decent view of the Hill Country. The house itself would be a nice upscale northern San Antonio two-story (and they come really beautiful down here, a $300,000 itself is a really nice house).

 

And I would own these specially ordered cars (not to be flashy but because I love cars to death):

- 2014 Audi RS5: Sepang Blue, white interior, Matte-Alu Optic Pack., and every option available.

- 2015 Audi S7: Sepang Blue, "silver" interior, and every option available.

- 2014 Porsche 991 Carrera 4S: Blue, tan interior, 5-"open"-spoke wheels, a few of Porsche's aerodynamic design options, and every option available.

- 2014 BMW 650i xDrive: Orion Silver, Ivory interior, and every option available.

- 2014 Range Rover Sport: Green w/ Silver top, tan interior, and every option available.

*I'd get them detailed monthly*

 

I'd probably expand my garage to fit all 5 cars and the garage itself would be done up nicely inside with various clean and "modern-y" touches. My house would be slightly custom on the inside too but it wouldn't be too over-the-top, just subtle and slightly modern whilst still fitting the typical upper middle class suburban house itself.

 

I'd buy nice furniture, ritzy modern stuff that would fit the house, and I'd buy a slick 4K Samsung Curve television. Then I'd build up a nice theater room, probably buy some Bowers & Wilkins sound systems for the whole house, get my house done up with some lovely landscaping, install a beautiful pool, and probably furnish the house with foreign items from the traveling that I'd plan to do once a year or two.

 

With the rest of the money, I'd keep it to myself and live comfortably. I'd make sure not to spend my money ridiculously after purchasing what I had originally wanted. I don't think I'd still become a pharmacist but I would get a decent job that I'd like. In my free time, I would drive around a lot, enjoying most of my cars and I'd probably take them up to Austin every other weekend. I'd also take part in photography as I'd definitely be able to afford an excellent camera. The last thing I'd probably do is join a few car clubs and I'd definitely join Ferrari Club of America - you don't need to own a Ferrari to join.

 

But yeah, that is what I'd do. That is what I would do if I won $100m too. The only thing extra I'd probably do with $100m is buy a vacation home in Greenwich, Ct.

- Buy up about 20 acres with an old Cotswold stone barn and convert it into a nice, airy, light 5-bed with all the bells and whistles. Large detached garage a must. (~$2.5m)

collins1.jpg

- Appoint aforementioned large garage with various bits of equipment- spray booth, TIG welder, scissor lift, pit, workshop with mill, lathe, Snap-On everything, English Wheel and a dyno room (~$300k)

New-Garage-The-mount-2.jpg

- Purchase a number of vehicles; Gardner Douglas T70 Spyder with a throttle-bodied SBC as a track car, an F80 M3 for a daily driver, Cayman GT4-a-like running a GT3 motor and whatever else takes my fancy (~$400k)

GDT70-unrivalled.jpg

porsche-cayman-gt4-prototype-profile.jpg

That leaves a fairly substantial sum of money left for hookers, blow, track days and living on.

I'd carry on my job because hey, it's awesome, and spend my spare time tinkering with cars and building sh*t.

1/3 to invest

1/3 to start a business

1/3 to do some traveling and enjoy life. But my idea of enjoying life means setting up my own lab with all kinds of tech necessary to build robots, play around with magnets and electricity and stuff.

$10million is about 106 000 000 South African Rand I think, so I'll buy a nice house, preferably somewhere in Cape Town, like Clifton.

This beauty is currently on the market for R37 000 000:

Or this for R25 000 000:

Nothing too fancy :p

I'll waste the rest of the money on a new car or two, travel the world etc etc. The usual stuff.

$10,000,000 isn't really that much. Especially with the $ being quite a weak currency these days. 

 

£10,000,000 on the other hand, is $16,825,051. And 2 cents.

 

YEAH, take that America.

Depends... Is that 10mil before or after taxes? Either way, first thing i do is build a castle and hire midgets with guns to protect it from all the fair-weather friends and aquiantances/strangers looking for handouts.

I'm not trying to be rude, but I'd like to see a picture of your house and you friend's car as proof. You're not going to be taken seriously around here unless you provide proof.

It did seem very much like a bad "I'm rich and awesome" comment so let's take any discussion related to it to PM please.

I'd buy a studio to make films, do photography and make music. 

 

Buy a house that's modest enough for a multimillionaire but it would be kitted out to bits inside, home cinema, lounge/bar, games room etc.  I'd buy an apartment abroad and I'd buy a few nice cars.

 

I'd donate some to charity for good measure.

I'll probably give some of the money to charity.

 

After that, travel around the world at most countries. Then, buy a house somewhere a little far off the city and, as I always wanted, a lot of gaming related things.

If it was the lottery it'd be tax free wouldn't it? I think they are.

 

 

If I had that cash frig charity, the governments could end it suffering quick if they had the balls to, you live once so make the most of it.

 

I would spend it all recklessly and end up on tv in a few years as a pathetic, washed up count on a 'where are they now' tv show giving my sad account on how money changed me.
