Vauxhall may have raised the bar when it comes to producing premium cars at sensible prices, but an Ipsos MORI survey reveals that even lucky National Lottery winners are keen to splash their cash on models from one of the UK's most popular brands.

In a survey of 100 National Lottery publicity winners who'd won �1m or more, Vauxhall ranked fourth in their automotive wish lists, ahead of prestige brands like Range Rover, Porsche, Audi and Jaguar.

Altogether 15pc of those surveyed bought a Vauxhall after receiving their winnings, showing even newly-minted millionaires need cars that are practical, stylish, well-equipped and luxurious.

Cars were revealed as one of the most popular purchases for National Lottery winners, with 36pc choosing to visit a car showroom before visiting either an estate agent or even the high street shops.

It goes to show that, while exotic brands like Ferrari and Rolls-Royce may feature further down National Lottery winners' shopping lists, they're still a pragmatic group at heart - but one that still recognises quality and value!'
