The French-made sports car cruises at about 268 miles an hour, making it the perfect vehicle to cruise the 190. It costs about $2.8 million, so you should be able to put about 10 of these in your driveway, unless you live in South Buffalo where no one uses their driveway and the street parking is horrendous.
Giselle Bundchen made this expensive piece of underwear famous in 2005, and it still remains unsold. For $15 million bucks, you can have this beauty. Of course, for $15 million bucks, I would ask that they throw in the other beauty, Giselle Bundchen. Sorry, Tom.
This guitar signed by Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Def Leppard and Angus and Malcom Young is worth $2.7 million.

And just think, you'll still have money left over for guitar lessons.
As if smartphone plans weren't expensive enough, along comes the diamond-covered iPhone 4s. This baby is all blinged up with a diamond-encrusted Apple logo, 500 diamonds and a platinum carrying case.

That's right, we're for sale. Since we know there's no chance in hell of us actually winning the Powerball, we'll gladly sell you Jack FM for $245 million.
