IRVINE, California — Aston Martin's 37 U.S. dealerships will feature new lease deals for all core sports cars starting in mid-May, courtesy of a new venture between Aston Martin Lagonda and Ally Financial Inc.
Through the partnership, Ally — the former GM financing arm — will offer retail and lease financing, wholesale financing and exclusive programs through the dealerships. The move is expected to expand Aston Martin sales.
Leases are a critical part of the equation for luxury automakers because more customers are using them.
"We undertook an extensive search for a financial services provider," said Julian Jenkins, president of Aston Martin, The Americas, in a statement.
He added that Ally Financial is "ideally placed to meet the high standards of our customers."
Aston Martin describes the new lease deals as "attractive" and "reasonable."
Edmunds says: Many car shoppers could only dream about the Aston Martins they saw in James Bond movies in the past. Will that change with this new leasing deal?
