KEITH ADAMS ED­I­TOR

No I wouldn’t buy this F1. I’d buy 10 Fer­rari 288 GTOs and ac­tu­ally use one of them to en­joy driv­ing the most de­sir­able of all 1980s su­per­cars.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR

I love McLaren F1s, but I couldn’t spend £10m on any car un­less it came with a match­ing yacht and he­li­copter. Some­thing for McLaren to think about.

GARVAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

Hmm. I’d have to road test it first, see if there’s any smoke at start-up, do an HPI check and as­sess the panel gaps. Can’t be too care­ful.

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CI­ATE ED­I­TOR

No, I would in­vest in a very nice house in the coun­try with a long drive plus plenty of garages to con­tain a mul­ti­tude of beau­ti­ful BRMs and Volk­swa­gens.

DAVID SIMISTER FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR

No. I’d buy a barn to store 100 clas­sics to en­joy in the real world. Why do 240mph when an MG PA Midget is more fun at a tenth of that?

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION ACT­ING NEWS ED­I­TOR

I’d drive it oc­ca­sion­ally to Good­wood, and then watch £20m drop into my bank ac­count in 10 years’ time.

CALUM BROWN WEB PRO­DUCER

What a ridicu­lous ques­tion. I’m Scot­tish. If I had £10m, I’d buy a house, a dis­tillery, some staff and a herd of clas­sic Land Rovers to pass the time.

LEISE EN­RIGHT OF­FICE MAN­AGER

I need a new car for tak­ing the kids to school so yes, I’d buy it. I would then sell my hus­band to pay for tyres and ser­vic­ing.
