There's a lot to figure when you're planning a 60-month lease of an $14,000 car: up-front capitalization, estimated resale value when the lease is up and buy-out price. Now, add two zeros. According to Automobile, that's what's in store if you want to lease the Bugatti Veyron from Putnam Leasing: a $400,000 down payment and $23,595 per month. Of course, then there's a limit of 2,500 miles per year. Add it up, and you're nearly a half-mil in the hole compared with buying it outright. In other news, Ben Franklin's corpse just exploded.
