TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car Features - Lottery Ticket (Photo from SXC.hu)Has someone finally bagged the Grand Lotto prize that has reached close to half a billion pesos? The winning combination in tonight's 6/55 Grand Lotto draw is 53-9-45-24-50-29 according to a Tweet by GMA News.

If you're the lucky winner, you'd definitely enjoy car shopping with P495 million. This amount is enough to buy at least:

- 579 units of Toyota Vios, in case you feel like starting a fleet of taxi with the model's range-topping variant;
- 600 units of Ford Fiesta, one of the latest cars in the Philippine market;
- 217 units of Toyota Prius or 48 units of Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid for the green motorists;
- 158 units of Chevrolet Camaro or 263 units of Hyundai Genesis Coupe for those who want muscle cars;
- 129 units of Volvo XC60 for the safety seekers; and
- 158 units of Ford Expedition for those who need to haul lots of passengers and cargo.
