About Us

The Manhattan Story

Manhattan Leasing was started in 1975 and became Manhattan Funding in 2021. With this new chapter in our story, we’ve become the next generation of high-end, exotic, and vintage car leasing and acquisition services.

We know this business. With a combined 65 years of experience between our managing partners, we have an unmatched understanding of the right way to finance cars.

We encourage our customers to think of us as more than just a leasing and acquisition company. Our long-term industry relationships, connections, and access to tools offer our customers more options at the end of the day. We pride ourselves on customer service and satisfaction, efficiency, flexibility, and fairness. We know these attributes foster good relationships and promote repeat business with our customers– our longevity is proof of the concept.

Manhattan has been and continues to be the leasing firm that breaks the mold.

"We are the originators of modern day auto leasing."
