dont forget to read the fine print on anything you buy

Rates as low as 8.99%

$2,995/MO for 144 MONTHS
Finance based on level one credit with $96,750 down plus tax, tags, and title."

Not bad - only about $527,000 (plus tax, tags and title)! Ican't believe they make you pay for tags and title on a $500k+ car!

??? $2995 x 144 months = $431,280 + the $96,750 down = $528,030... and on top of that tax (7.25% here would be another $38,283) Tag & Title ($60 here). On top of that I'll bet the greedy pricks want one of their BS "Doc Fee's" to boot... Sorry, never paid one, never will.

So, to buy that car on their terms in Knoxville would total $566,373 for a used car that sold new for $440k Plus tax. What a BAHHGin...

Besides, I wonder if more than 10% of the buyers of those cars even finance them?

Get a HELOC. Buy the car outright, repay the heloc. Writeoff the interest.

You'd be surprise. People who bought into this car as an Enzo killer and the idea that it will become a collectible, would have either paid cash or financed it for 60 or even 144 months. That being said, I'd suspect most are leasing it as it makes MUCH better sense.

That is cutting it pretty close. That leaves you $500/mo for fuel, food, and insurance,
