what is wrong with leased ? the 7th owner of my 360 was a leasing company, but in reality it was a business owner that figured leasing a Ferrari was cheaper then buying probably due to some tax savings. The leasing company bought the car, he owned it 18months and the leasing company sold the back to the private sector. I would not look into a ex-rental Ferrari but leasing has so many (in my opinion false) tax advantages that if you own a business, you might want to get a company car, that does not mean you will abuse it...a rental yeah its very safe to assume it was abused.
The only concern I had about my car was that lease was in Atlanta, the 8th owner was in Florida for only 3 months, the 9th owner was in Arizona again for only 3 months, it was a lot of moving across state lines and short ownerships, its coming up on a year of ownership now, near daily driving, went to see my daughter over the weekend 300 glorious miles and I still have not found anything wrong. With the thousands of miles I put on, I would have found it by now.
I dare you to walk up to my and guess how many owners its had... (ok that is not fair, since you know now).
I understand you want a ultra cherry car, mine would not satisfy you and mine is NOT for sale anyway, just wondering why the lease would upset a potential deal.
