Wow, you've won 40,000!
 
Which single car would you buy?

Do I keep the change?
Can I top the money up a little?

Haha, fair enough.
You can keep up to 10 grand change, and top up 5 grand, so the question becomes, which single car would you buy between 30 and 45 grand. New, second hand, kit, or custom built for you.

New; either a Mercedes CLA or RHD Mustang (both 30-35k)
Second hand; Ferrari 348

custom built for you

Well, with the pound sinking against the Euro (because of the Brexit) 40.000 Pounds = 47.000 Euros.
For that money (or a little less) you can get a nice used Audi R8 in Germany.

A 5 or 6 years ago you could get a ferrari 360 or a lambo gallardo and have change with that money. Have you seen the prices of them now? I dont understand how they can go up that much in value!
A friend or mine bought a ferrai 360 modena for 30k 7 years ago. Infact you could buy a ferrai 456 for about 25k! At that time there was any amounts for sale at that price.
Cam anyone explain the price increase?

In anser to the question posted, would have to be te best ferrari i could find for the money!

A work colleague bought a 308 GT4 about 10 years ago. It was all up and running with an mot. He paid 7500 for it. He didn't have the foresight to keep it very long and he sold it on less than a year later.

If I had 40 I would build a 275 replica when they become available and have the best part of 30k to spend on another future project. My problem has always been that I have to sell one car to fund the next. I wish I had been able to hang onto so many cars I've had in the past!

I've always wanted one of these, might stretch the 40k budget though.

All day long!!! One of my favourite French cars ever- especially in that blue and all stickered up. Usually a few at Retromobile and enough spares to build one.

I've just seen a model of a cabrio version- never seen a full sized one though.
