Lamborghini has announced a new “Retail Finance Plan” of low-interest loans for its most exclusive vehicles on the market, the Murcielago LP640 Coupe and Roadster (model years 2009 and 2010). The supercar brand is partnering with Woodside Credit and Volkswagen Credit Inc. to provide alternative financing programs through authorized dealers in the U.S.

"The Lamborghini Retail Finance Plan allows enthusiasts to finance one of most exclusive cars on the road at a more competitive rate than ever before," said Pietro Frigerio, chief operating officer of Lamborghini’s American operations.

Qualified buyers with a credit score of 700 or higher will enjoy rates starting at 5.99%, a minimum down payment of 10%, low monthly payments and terms of up to 12 years. For those buyers with a credit score above 740 and making a higher down payment, the program offers a zero percent interest rate over a 60-month period.

What this means is that despite the global financial crisis, it’s now just that much easier to own an exotic Italian supercar.

Incidentally, helping to provide the credit is Volkswagen Credit Inc., the same group that filed a lawsuit against Lamborghini Orange County dealer Vik Keuylian for fraudulent sales, which you can read about by clicking here.
