Taupo Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - ROBERT STEVEN

Where is Taupo¯’s $30 mil­lion Lotto ticket?

Six nights have passed since a Rich­mond Su­perette ticket-buyer be­came a mulit-mil­lion­aire.

How­ever, the lucky win­ner is yet to make an ap­pear­ance, as of Thurs­day morn­ing.

We’ve put to­gether a shop­ping list of what the First Di­vi­sion win­ner could buy if they tried to spend $30m in Taupo¯ .

1. Robin­son R44 he­li­copter: $549,000

First up is a he­li­copter. Take your mates for a spin in this fourseater whirly­bird, which has a top speed of 240 kmh. This one’s up on Trade Me. 2. Tesla Model S P100D elec­tric car: $281,000

Zero to 100 in 2.7 sec­onds.The P100D is Tesla’s most ex­quis­ite elec­tric car.

With a 613 kilo­me­tre range, you could drive from Taupo¯ to Kaitaia be­fore you’d need to charge it.

An ad­vanced ‘‘self-driv­ing’’ op­tion uses eight cam­eras and 12 in­frared sen­sors to de­tect the road lanes and haz­ards ahead.

So key in your des­ti­na­tion and en­joy the (quiet) jour­ney.

Or­der this one at EV Cen­tral on Ton­gariro St.

3. Seven bed­room prop­erty: $4.7m+

If you like lux­ury, set­tle in to 41 Ma­para Rd, Aca­cia Bay.

Stretch out in 700 square me­tres of liv­ing space and en­joy the lake view.

Wan­der into the bil­liards room, com­plete with a bar.

Like your own bath­room? No wor­ries - this prop­erty has seven.

This man­sion last sold in 1995 for $4.7m, but could cost more now.

4. Ramco 760 Hard Top speed­boat: $84,990

Big boat with a roar­ing 250 horse­power en­gine.

Stay overnight in the spa­cious cabin, and turn your fish­ing trips into fish­ing week­ends.

Pick it at Trev Terry Ma­rine for just short of $85k. Spend the change on a wake­board.

5. Finn MacCuhal’s Ir­ish Pub com­plex: $11 mil­lion

The 3500 sqm brick com­plex is up for sale, and $11m will get you the pub and nearby rentals.

Of course, you’ll be ex­pected to shout all your mates drinks when they come through Taupo¯ for the rest of your life.

So there’s our list for liv­ing it up large in Taupo¯ - and still hav­ing $13.4m change.

Satur­day’s $30m Lotto win­ner could buy a bar, a 7-bed­room house, a he­li­copter and Tesla S elec­tric car - and still have $13m in change.
