The Pistonheads website has a new feature called the £100k garage. I decided to have a go but then realised I probably wouldn’t get it published so for a bit of fun decided to write it up here. The aim is to spend a mythical £100k on cars! easy! Or is it?
I would love to hear your thoughts so please drop me a line here.
Type of car / Reason for buying: Executive express capable of taking clients and kit with me.
Chosen Vehicle: AUDI RS4 4.2 FSI Quattro 5dr S Tronic (2013) Link. Price: £49, 950.
I really do believe this car ticks all the boxes the reason for purchase and the estate should swallow all my kit and stuff for work. I also have a soft spot for Audi’s. It would not look too out of place in any clients car park either.
Type of car / Reason for buying: Lets do the South of France and back in a long weekend.
Chosen Vehicle: Mercedes CL500, 2003. Link. Price:£7995.
I have always had a soft spot for these and in my opinion these do make the best grand tourers and I really cannot object at this price.
Type of car / Reason for buying: Shopping trolley.
Chosen Vehicle: Volkswagen GOLF (MK5) R32 2006. Link. Price: £7995.
Even with my love of online shopping there are times that even I have to nip to Sainburys/B&Q/The local retail park so I might as well have some fun driving there and back to ease the pain of being the dreaded stores in the first place!
Type of car / Reason for buying: London Commuter
Chosen Vehicle: HONDA CBR 900RR-2 954 (2002). Link. Price £3550.
There is no way I would drive a car into Central London for any reason and I do hate South West Trains with a passion, so this is a perfect bet of kit to get me in and out sharpish 🙂
Type of car / Reason for buying: Fun car.
Chosen Vehicle: PORSCHE 987C CAYMAN S 3.4 24V. Link. Price £13,900
I was considering a Porsche Boxster when I came across this Cayman its probably an early one but still represents an awful lot of car and fun for the price!
Type of car / Reason for buying: Mucking about with boats and hunting shooting and fishing.
Chosen Vehicle: LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER 3.0 Td6 VOGUE Auto 2003 (2003)
. Link. Price £12,995
Well I went straight out to do the good thing and find the most competent 4×4 there is from in my opinion the best makers of these vehicles in the world. Land Rover. I also wanted something a bit unusual if I could find it. The problem was finding one that looked like it hadn’t been pimped in a drug dealer stylee.
With a balance of £3615 I could have added a people carrier to the stable for when my 7 year old daughter and her mates needed ferrying around but my real regret is not having enough left for this bad boy.
