What cars do lottery winners drive?

One of the first things that many lottery winners purchase with their hard-won lotto cash is a brand new car. Many will even buy more than one car. So, what cars are these lucky lotto winners buying for themselves?

The open road, a flashy new ride, a full tank of fuel and a mind racing faster than the new car! You’ve had your pick of any car in the world and you’ve chosen this one. How does it feel? Is it all that you thought it would be?

Hey, if you are disappointed you can always go and buy yourself another one! Finance? No problem, you are paying cash. An almost unlimited bank account can certainly help when it comes to showroom floor service…

Not many people know the feeling – a lottery winner is one of the exceptions! recently posted some interesting stats regarding the car spending-habits of lottery winners. And the results are even more ostentatious than expected!

* 13% of Jackpot Winners have purchased at least TEN cars since their win.
* The average number of cars purchased per lottery winning household is FIVE.

The top ten car brands purchased by lottery winners are as follows (in order):

1. Mercedes-Benz
2. BMW
3. Mini Cooper
4. Vauxhall
5. Land Rover
6. Range Rover
7. Ford
8. Porsche
9. Audi
10. Jaguar

I am sure that every lottery player out there would have their own thoughts about the kinds of cars that they think should have made the lottery winners list, or the order that the above cars appeared in. So why not give us your thoughts on the subject?
