Leasing a vehicle often is a great option to get yourself a car for a relatively low monthly payment. However, when it’s a $2.4 million Pagani Huayra Roadster in question you get the world’s most expensive car lease ever. Putnam Leasing, a company that specializes in leases for exotic vehicles, has come up with a new lease deal can put you behind the wheel of a rare convertible Huayra for just $25,339 a month for 60 months. That totals to $1,520,340 in monthly payments, which might sound like the deal of the century. But, first you’ll have to put in a deposit of $700,000 to get your hands on the hypercar – taking the total investment to more than $2.2 million.
The whole deal might sound a little crazy, but if you carefully do the math you’ll realize it’s not bad at all. Firstly, such exotic cars have waiting period in years when bought new, and usually they sell for a lot more than their sticker price in used market. Then, as the leasing company points out, the monthly payment can be shown as business expense which qualifies for a tax write-off. Plus, this agreement lets the purchaser transfer the contract to a different vehicle at any time without a penalty. To make the deal even sweeter, the leasing company says that if the car increases in value by the end of the lease term, the lessee gets the difference between the sale price and the predicted residual value. That not a bad way at all to get yourself one of the 100 Huayra Roadsters in the world powered by a twin-turbo AMG V12 engine putting out 752 horsepower.
