Purchasing a Pagani Huayra necessitates having a bank account that stretches deep into the eight-figure mark. As much as many of us would love to be that wealthy, the truth is that few ever will be. Fortunately, Putnam Leasing has a solution. Kind of.
The U.S. company has just announced a leasing program which will allow Huayra enthusiasts to get behind the wheel of the Italian supercar without having to spend years saving up. All it requires is a monthly payment of $25,339 over 60 months and an upfront down payment of $700,000. Evidently, even this leasing program is restricted to the world’s wealthiest people.
Putnam says that this is the most expensive new car lease in history but hasn’t specified exactly which Huayra model customers can lease. With that being said, the press release makes repeated mention of the updated Huayra Roadster.
If you add together the monthly lease costs and down payment, you get a total of $2.22 million, a not so reasonable sum considering the Huayra Roadster starts at $2.7 million.
However, payments are spread out to 5 years, plus if you own a business, you might even catch some sort of tax break.
“Leasing offers several advantages over buying,” says Putnam leasing chief executive Steven Posner. “First and foremost, leases held by corporations can qualify as business expenses for tax purposes. Also, many states allow leaseholders to pay sales tax monthly instead of as a one-time lump sum. There really are significant advantages to considering the lease vs. buy option when it comes to the luxury car category. High net worths are usually focused on making the smartest investment and having their money work for them. Putnam Leasing really offers elite clients a variety of intelligent options on those fronts.”
As you probably already know, the Huayra Roadster features a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine delivering 764 hp to the rear wheels. The supercar can accelerate to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a rapid 2.8 seconds and manages to turn heads like nothing else on four wheels.
