Leasing vs. Buying a Ferrari

Driving a Ferrari is an experience like no other, and being able to drive one home makes the experience even sweeter. But should you buy or look for a Ferrari lease? There are advantages to each, and Continental AutoSports Ferrari can help you decide what’s best for you.


Ownership

What’s better than driving a Ferrari? Owning one — knowing that whichever Prancing Horse in your possession will belong to you for as long as you want. Whether you’re enjoying it on the highways around Chicago or Indianapolis or you’re tearing up the track, knowing that it’s yours to enjoy — and to show off — is a feeling unlike any other. But pride is far from the only reason to buy a Ferrari: it also makes good financial sense.

Value Retention

Many vehicles tend to experience depreciation over time — but when it comes to Ferraris, the opposite is often true. Ferrari vehicles tend to hold their value over time, and often even appreciate in value. Not only is the purchase or lease of a Prancing Horse an investment in pure driving pleasure, but it can also be a sound financial investment!


Costs

Leasing is more affordable than buying a new Ferrari. Not only do you not have to pay sales tax, but with a Ferrari lease, you’re only paying for the part of the car you use — that is, the duration of the lease and the mileage allotment. This can be a much more attainable way to experience the joy of a world-renowned supercar in a way that’s uncommonly affordable.

With a lease, you’ll likely enjoy a lower monthly payment as well — the problem, of course, is that you’ll have to return the car at the end of your lease term. Fortunately, we’ll be happy to negotiate a purchase option at the conclusion of your Ferrari lease if you can’t bear to part with your Prancing Horse.

Maintenance

Ferrari cars are precision machines that require expert care and maintenance on precise schedules. As a Ferrari owner or lessee, you’ll be responsible for visiting an official Ferrari service center to proactively have maintenance work completed. Not only will this keep your Prancing Horse running like the high-performance supercar that it is, but having an official record of all maintenance and repairs will help the vehicle maintain its value over time.
