    An Audi Q7. The couple stayed up all night thinking about the £148 million they had just won, and all she wanted was an Audi Q7.

    I wonder if they will join ASN once they join the owners club?

    Or, maybe they are already members?

    Anyone else thinking of asking them for just a small £100k to help out, or just me :)

    What a shame money can't buy taste. The Q7 is a vile nasty fugly waste of metal and plastics.

    Whilst I agree with you in general Jeff, a Q7 in S-Line spec with 20" rims has road presence! I still wouldn't buy one, and the Q3/Q5 don;t look quite right at the back!

    I am sorry to all the Audi fans on here, but with that win, my first car is going to be a brand new Aston Martin V12 Zagato.

    Im surprised it wasnt a handbag or a pair of shoes that she wanted.Personally, the car i would first buy would be a lambo miura, and for sundays an auburn cord speedster.And an rs6 for pottering.Why the hell did they go public?

    I think my first car after winning it would have to be an r8 and buy a Ferrari f40 or 250 gto
    Dream cars since I set eyes on them! They would also go nicely in the garage of my Monaco mansion ;)

    I like the top spec Q7's but wouldnt buy one, i'd be straight out buying a Rnage Rover Sport for the family then my 3 top cars which consist of a GT-R, 911 Turbo and a Shelby Cobra. Then a huge garage to put all of them in with the others i'd buy!

    I'd give a huge chunk to charities and set up my own for my brother. No need to have all that money so would prefer it doing good for others.

    Wow! Ferrari's, Lambo's, Aston's, Range Rovers ...flash motors all, But has anybody thought about buying something inconspicuous for the spontaneous shopping trip into a nearby town\village? With all of the attention you'll get, theirs bound to be a time you'd rather travel incognito! and for just such an occasion I recommend ....an A3. :)

    I think they'll regret going public, everybody now knows what they look like - even potential new neighbours, so they'll be targeted by every scammer alive & the begging won't stop until they disappear. It's a very short-sighted decision.

    I believe to get all the financial advisor support from the lottery operator you have to go public. If not your on your own so to speak (Imagine being on your own with 100+ million, know where i'd start - a little car garage in Long Stratton......)

    My 1st purchase would have to be a yacht, id say £10-12 million would get me a nice one, then plonk it at a harbour in monico and away i go :)

    Buy a house in evey country you stop at on the way. Id be known as the lotto lout that spent all his money on cars and bikes and fast food :)

    And obviousley sort the family and friends out but forget paying 40 percent on £1million pounds to the robbing tax man!

    I guess, because nowadays in our society being a celebrity even a minor one is what a lot of people aspire to. Their lives surely will be hell now that everyone knows who they are.

    I would get a few classics, ford RS's, then as i'm now an Audi man get hold of an origional quattro.

    Something then like a ferrari

    RS4 As a daily

    I have allways said if I win millions upon millions that the car I own at the time would get a 1 milion pound makeover, now that's some serious modding lol.
