It’s been more than a week since that Tennessee couple claimed $328 million (after taxes) from the $1.6 billion Powerball drawing. And we weren’t really that jealous, until we walked around Detroit’s 2016 North American International Auto Show, which wraps this weekend. The following seven show debuts represent welcome additions to any golden ticket holder’s garage. After all, by our math you’d still have at least $323 mil left over for investing—or really expensive car washes.
Acura Precision Concept: This gorgeous concept features a number of cool new technologies, like a higher-tech version of Audi’s digital human-machine interface system. But it’s the car’s eye-catching profile that really sells you on the idea that those lottery tix would have been well worth the investment.
2016 BMW M2 Coupe: Anything bearing that high-performance “M” badge is bound to have you dreaming of ways to score extra cash. The BMW M2 is no exception. The new model ups the ante on the popular 2 Series coupe with a 365 horsepower twin-powered turbo engine, taking you from 0 to 60 in just 4.2 seconds.
Audi h-Tron Quattro Concept: Sounds like something Tony Stark would drive, right? And with good reason. Aside from the fact that Audi is synonymous with the superhero, this ride features a few high-tech features that might interest Iron Man. Namely, the vehicle’s hydrogen-powered propulsion system that enables the car to be fully refueled in four minutes with a 372.8-mile driving range.
2017 Porsche 911 Turbo: We just never grow tired of Porsche debuts, and the latest 911 Turbo is no different. The biggest reason? This powerful new edition cranks out a whopping 580 horsepower, making it one of the fasted production 911s ever.
Buick Avista Concept: This 400-horsepower coupe, clearly a personal favorite of ours here at Made Man, paints a pretty vivid picture for us of why having $328 million burning a hole in your pocket wouldn’t be so bad.
Nissan Titan Warrior Concept: If ever a new pickup truck were worthy of Powerball status, it’d be the Nissan Titan Warrior Concept. The diesel-powered beast, which is based on the current Titan, features carbon fiber fenders, functional hood vents, a carbon fiber cabin and tailgate spoilers to give the truck a sleek new look.
2017 Lexus LC 500: Still thinking you’d rather spend those winnings on something other than cars? Maybe the LC 500 will make you reconsider. Inspired by the LF-A Concept, the new flagship Lexus coupe is as impressive under the hood as it is from a design perspective; a 5.0-liter V8 cranks out an expected 467 horsepower. Photos by A.J.
