What dream car would you buy if you won the lottery?

The editors at Edmunds’ Inside Line had a little fun fantasizing about what they would get for $100,000-plus. We like Executive Editor Michael Jordan’s answer best: A Ford Focus ST! But that’s because we could afford one.

See how he justifies his answer in detail. (But smart-alecky answers aside; we’d probably go with a Ferrari. Of course!)

The Aston Martin seems to be at the top of the contributors’ lists — clearly because they all have the fantasy of being James Bond — like contributor James Riswick said after giving a list of “I’d love to say’s” he ends with: “I’d love to say all that, and it’d be true, but really it’s because I’m a giant James Bond nerd.” … I’m sure the V12 engine in some of the models doesn’t hurt either.

Ron Montoya really wanted to splurge, choosing the 2012 Tesla Model S that clocks in at $103,050 ($3,050 over budget!) Montoya said he could soften his breaking of the budget with a federal tax rebate of $7,500 after purchasing the car.

Check out the article on Insideline, and get jealous over all of the over-the-top luxury cars — I’m sure many of you will be saving your nickels and dimes for one these beauties.
