Tired of shelling out $US1,300 bucks a month for your Mercedes-Benz S550?

Then it’s time for you to step up to an Aston Martin Rapide S for just $US2,600 a month.

In all seriousness, Aston Martin and Ally Financial announced this week that they’re teaming up to offer customers a variety of lease and financing options.

“We are delighted to finalise this exciting partnership with Ally Financial,” Aston Martin Americas president Julian Jenkins said.

“We undertook an extensive search for a financial services provider and believe Ally Financial with their extensive experience in the industry, are ideally placed to meet the high standards our customers expect.”

Through its agreement with Ally, Aston Martin will be able to offer a variety of retail, lease, and wholesale financing through its dealership starting in late May.

Among the financial packages offered by the new partnership are deals for Aston’s V12 Vantage S for less than $US1,900 per month or a Rapide S for less than $US2,600.

In addition to new financing options, Aston Martin also announced this week that it will spend $US307 million to develop a new luxury rossover GT coupe based on the DBX show car that debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
