Impulse buys are common after winning a jackpot. "It's pretty typical for young people to spend large amounts of money on cars when they win the lottery," says Boone. "There's a built-in appetite with them for that kind of spending." A 2012 Bugatti Veyron Supersport is the most expensive car in the world at $2.6 million. It has a 16-cylinder engine, 1200 horsepower, and it can go from zero to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds. A less pricey 200" 2011 Hummer Limousine will set you back about $80,000. Chauffeurs make salaries upwards of $50,000.
