it's motor buildin' time!

Question If you had $120k to spend on a car, how would you use it?

If someone gave you $120,000 to specifically spend on a car (or multiple cars), how would you spend it?

Rules:
1. Saving the money or using it for anything other than car stuff isn't an option.
2. See rule #1.
3. Feel free to answer multiple times.

black series clk63 most likely. I enjoy automatics these days and the raw power of a merc-v8 would be splendid...

Pay off my current cars, and with the $40k or so leftover, supercharge the Avalanche ($10k), Cosworth the STI w/ bigger turbo, etc.. on the STI (leftover).

Aston Martin V8 Vantage or gently used Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni.

Everyone else is wrong. I'm correct, as usual.
