I know that Eastgate won't actually get the full $9.1 million after the tax man takes his bite, and not many people would squander such a windfall on cool toys, but let's just forget logic and think of all the amazing things we could buy if we had a $9.1 million novelty check to spend in a day.
5) Tour de l'Ile ($1.5m). I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but in North America, it seems a man's status of power and wealth can be determined by the watch he's wearing. Since you're now the World Champion with money to burn, it only makes sense for you to dress the part. Say hello to the Tour de l'Ile.
Named after the "largest gathering of cyclists on the planet," according to Guinness, the watch is a $1.5 million work of art. Hand built in over 10,000 combined man hours (meaning it would take one person over 416 days to build this watch). Not to mention it's full of fancy features and rare materials. But really - its biggest appeal is that it looks good and lets everyone in the room know that you're a really big deal.
4) Sharp 108-inch LCD Flat-Screen ($100k). When it comes to a TV, bigger is always better. Using this undeniable logic, the biggest is always the best: Enter the 108-inch flat-screen LCD monitor by Sharp. Officially available in Japan with a price of 14 million yen (close to $100,000), the 108-inch Sharp is the largest TV available in the world.
Did I mention it's high def?
3) KRELL Hi-Fi System ($200k). If you're going to get yourself a huge freaking TV, you should also have one of the world's best hi-fi systems to keep it company. KRELL is renowned for being one of the world's most prestigious engineers of sound. If you where to build a "simple" two-speaker flagship KRELL system, you're looking at around $200,000.
This system includes the following:
KRELL Evolution One Amp x 2 ($50,000) - These are your power amps, one per speaker. They give the speaker power and make it do what it does.
KRELL Evolution 505 ($15,000) - This is your "source." The 505 is a CD player.
KRELL Evolution Two Pre-Amp x2 ($40,000) - You need to take the source to a pre-amp before sending the sound off to the power amp; again, one per speaker.
KRELL LAT-1000 ($55,000) - Finally the actual speakers. Only $55,000 for the pair.
After you factor in $25,000 for speaker wire, a rack mount case to hold all of your amps and doodads, professional installation (do you really want to install it yourself?) and comfy new chairs to sit in while listening to your tunes, you're going to spend well over $200,000.
2) Whistler Vacation Home ($5.7m). Once you have all these cool toys, you're going to need a place to put them. What better place than your $5.7 million vacation home at the base of the world's greatest ski hill just outside Vancouver, Canada, and host venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics? This luxury home/condo is literally at the base of the mountain, and includes all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a $5.7 million home.
Some details: Features two master king bedrooms with ensuites. Two guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms, expansive living area with powder room and fireplace, vaulted ceilings and gourmet kitchen with dining area and a private terrace, fully furnished.
1) Bugatti Veyron Fbg par Hermès ($2.3m).
This car has been tested extensively by the Top Gear drivers, and has a top speed of 253.81 mph. No, I'm not making that up; it literally drives over 408 km/h. Want proof? Here's a clip from Top Gear, where Jeremy Clarkson sets the bar at how fast the car can actually go.
