You've just won the lottery.....

....and you're out to get some new wheels. The catch is that you're limited to a two car garage. What would YOU fill it with? (and please, no smart arses saying they'd build a 3/4/5 car garage)

My Pick?
Car 1: Mercedes-Benz AMG CL65
1000Nm of torque at 2000rpm, yes please! Room for 4, v. luxurious, superb interstate express, but can mix it on the curvy stuff too. Does everything

Car 2:
Caterham Superlight
For those roads which are just two tight and twisty for the AMG. Motorbike style power to weight, great handling and feedback, ideal for carving up those tight twisty bits the cops ignore. For those Sunday mornings where you just go for it

What goes into your garage?

Yeah I agree on the Euro luxo cars, but it would be a tossup between the Merc, BMW or a nice Audi.

Second car would be a fully restored Jensen Interceptor, any car that is called an 'Interceptor' just has to be good.

Then again if I won lotto, I could organise to have Laminge 'taken care of', and then I could have the Mingenator!
