In the HBO series Ballers, former-NFLer-turned-financial-manager Spencer Strasmore, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, warns younger players against the dangers of big purchases. "Never buy a depreciating asset," Strasmore admonishes, adding "If it drives, flies, [or] floats... lease it!" It's a prescient moment then, when one of The Rock's young charges ends up behind the wheel of a McLaren. Fast forward to today (and real life), when the British company inked a financing deal with Ally Financial, which will include lease deals on the new 570S "for as low as $2,200 per month."

Alongside the $184,900 570S, potential owners will be given the chance to snag the $269,500 650S as part of the new closed-end lease program. It should be noted, international readers, that this new program is limited to US McLaren customers.

"We are thrilled to announce the addition of leasing to our purchasing options, and fulfill what has been a regular request from our customers and dealers since we first set up US operations in 2011. Ally Financial has been a wonderful partner to develop this bespoke program with, and we are excited to launch it today," McLaren North America president Anthony Joseph said in the attached release.

We're sure the NFL's players and their macho financial advisors are excited too, Mr. Joseph.

McLAREN NORTH AMERICA AND ALLY FINANCIAL ANNOUNCE FINANCING RELATIONSHIP

Program Offers Competitive Leases to Customers Purchasing New McLaren 570S and 650S Models

NEW YORK, NY (January 4, 2016) – McLaren Automotive North America and Ally Financial announced today a new preferred financing relationship, which includes the availability of retail financing and competitive leasing options for McLaren's two best-selling models, the McLaren 570S and 650S. McLaren and Ally worked together over several months to develop this bespoke program for the unique McLaren client base. Retail financing and closed-end leases are available to qualified customers immediately throughout the entire U.S. McLaren dealer network.

"We are thrilled to announce the addition of leasing to our purchasing options, and fulfill what has been a regular request from our customers and dealers since we first set up U.S. operations in 2011. Ally Financial has been a wonderful partner to develop this bespoke program with, and we are excited to launch it today," said Anthony Joseph, President of McLaren North America. "The availability of leasing comes at a critical time for McLaren as we begin to deliver the 570S Coupe, which enters a segment where lease availability is critical to car sales."

These closed-end lease programs from McLaren were developed in response to both customer and retailer demand, and to better compete in the performance car market. Leases are available for the 2016 McLaren 570S Coupe for as low as $2,200 per month*.

The competitive leases provide McLaren customers with certainty around the cost of driving by transferring the risk of depreciation away from the customer. They also offer convenience, where customers who have met all of their lease obligations can simply turn their car back in at the end of the leasing term.

"We are pleased to be launching this program with McLaren and supporting one of the world's premiere luxury brands," said Tim Russi, President of Auto Finance at Ally Financial. "We look forward to establishing and building strong relationships with McLaren's network of U.S. dealerships and providing long term value."

*Subject to terms, conditions and availability. Available through participating McLaren dealers in the United States.

ABOUT THE ELIGIBLE MODELS

The McLaren 570S Coupe is the first model launched in McLaren's new Sports Series. Following its global debut at the New York International Auto Show in April 2015, the new model range marks the entry of McLaren into the luxury sports car market, introducing race-derived technologies and supercar performance in a package which is very much a pure McLaren, but at a sports car price point. With pricing starting at $184,900, the 570S Coupe is just now beginning to arrive at McLaren retailers across the U.S.

The McLaren 650S Coupe and Spider represent the core of McLaren's supercar offerings: the aptly named Super Series. Only one model year into production, the 641 hp, 2,926 lb 650S has received a host of upgrades for 2016, including what was previously over $22,000 in additional carbon fiber content as standard. Starting from $269,500, the 650S sets the bar for performance, comfort and technology in its class – only five years after McLaren's return to building road-going supercars.
