Well, if you ever wanted to lease a Pagani Huayra Roadster, now you can.

Putnam Leasing has announced a leasing program for one of the world’s rarest exotics, and it’s the most expensive new-car lease in history. The Pagani Huayra lease program requires a down payment of $700,000 and a 60-month lease term that tops out at $25,339 per month. That means paying over $2.2 million over the course of five years, for a car you end up not owning. Like other leases however, Putnam does offer the opportunity to purchase the Huayra at lease end.

It’s unclear how many Pagani Huayra Roadsters Putnam Leasing is offering, but considering the Italian exotic automaker only produced 100 units, it’s likely not very many. The Huayra Roadster has a starting price of around $2.7 million, so depending on the residual, the lease might not be the worst idea in the world – but it probably is.

Of course, like Putnam Leasing explains, there are tax benefits to leasing a car. But we can’t imagine very many people or companies can justify writing off a Pagani Huayra Roadster lease. But hey, the option is there now, so there’s that.

    It seems to me these cars will go down in value. The roadster is just starting to get in the hands of the customers and now there maybe a few you get to lease? Its more speculative then actual value.

      All new cars go down in value the minute you sign the paperwork, Pagani's will be no exception. Once you purchase or lease a vehicle it now has a recorded owner, making it officially pre-owned. Purchasing a brand new car is one of the worst investments a person can make. That same car, 1 year old with 15,000 miles on it will be thousands less than if you bought it brand new.
