With some lottery winnings, this could be an early purchase on a spending spree of millions of dollars.

With lottery winnings possibility encroaching upon a $1 billion, players often wonder aloud what they might spend their winnings on, if they should manage to pick the correct six numbers.

Fortunately, there are plenty of options in the automotive world. Though a completely tricked out Ford Mustang or Bentley Bentayga – more likely, the new Volvo V90 in the case of one ticket-holding automotive scribe – might top the list, there are even bigger items.

If one holds a ticket worth nearly half a million dollars, adding an additional set of zeroes before the decimal point is certainly within a winners newly expanded budget.

So, if you’re looking to spend upwards of $1 million, the top 10 most expensive vehicles is the list your looking for and fortunately, we’ve found it … with the help of So if you win, you can go straight to the top of the list: the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster at $4.5 million.

(When 1,600 hp isn’t enough, turn to the Devel Sixteen and its 5,000 horsepower. Click Here for more.)

Featuring all of those hard angles we remember from Lambos past, this street-legal racer features a 6.5-liter V12 engine that puts out 740 horsepower. Named after a famed fighting bull, the Italian sports car maker is producing just nine of them so it may take more than the $4.5 million “sticker” price to get one.

The next best option is the Aston Martin Valkyrie at $3.2 million. A road-ready track model developed with Red Bull Racing, this beast seats you like a Formula One driver and surrounds you with lightweight carbon fiber structure powered by a mid-engine V12. There are no stats on how fast from zero to 60 mph or a top speed, but just know It. Goes. Fast. Aston is only producing between 99 and 150 units in 2018.

If all else fails, perhaps getting a Bugatti Chiron is the answer. The replacement for the outgoing Veyron, also known as the fastest car in the world at one time, the Chiron will be in the running for that title as well. Boasting an 8.0-liter W16 – or two V8s – putting out about 1,500 horsepower, it’ll sprint from zero to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds with a top speed of more than 250 mph.

Other options include:

  • Koenigsegg Regera at $2.6 million. Meaning “reign,” the new hybrid has a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with three electric motors to put out 1,822 hp. Only 80 units are planned.
  • Pagani Huayra Roadster at $2.4 million. With a carbon and glass removable bonnet and the 6.0-liter twin-turbo MercedesAMG V12 putting out 764 hp, it does zero to 60 in less than three seconds. Only 100 are made and you’ll need to buy it second-hand, all 100 are bought already.
  • Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta at $2.2 million. An open-air spider version of hybrid-powered LaFerrari with an 800-hp V12 engine mated to a 120kw electric motor taking that to 950 hp. Zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.
  • Zenvo TS1 at $1.9 million. Built by the little-known Danish supercar builder, the two-seater powered with a twin-supercharged 5.9-liter V8 putting out 1,100 hp doing zero to 60 in 2.8 seoncds and a top speed of 233 mph. The company is producing just 15 units.
  • Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli at $1.2 million. With just 25 units of the carbon fiber hypercoupe available, the Italian made-beast runs on a bi-turbo version of the Corvette’s Z06’s V8 engine rated at 1,000 hp with a zero to 60 time of 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph.
  • Arash AF10 Hybrid at $1.2 million. A 550-hp hybrid 6.2-liter V8 with four electric motors in its “warp drive” configuration putting out 1,180 hp, plus a 900-hp gas engine, you get a snarling 2,080 hp all-wheel-drive machine capable of zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds.
  • McLaren Senna at $1 million. Named after famed racer Ayton Senna, the 780-hp twin-turbo-powered V8 powered beast enjoys active aerodynamics in the front and rear keeping the car planted on the ground.

Ok. So now you’ve found a new car, you’ll need a place to run it. Don’t worry, you need a home racetrack and I’ve gotta guy.

    Tesla is promising the new roadster 0-60 of 1.9 seconds.

      Technically possible…if they could get the right tires, for one thing. But could it do more than a quarter mile launch without overheating, for one thing?

    You forgot to list the funeral costs when the poor soul wraps their new vehicle around a pole, drives it off the cliff or runs into someone.

    And let’s not forget the monies needed for the impending lawsuit if they caused the deaths of people they wrecked.
