Jay Leno drives the new Mclaren P1 Supercar

Jay Leno has one of the finest automobile collections in the world – we’ve been following his Youtube Channel ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ for years and he’s always acquiring breathtaking modern and vintage cars. Being an avid collector and respected ‘car man’ Jay gets to do some pretty amazing stuff – this video is no different.

Jay was recently invited to McLaren’s Technology Centre to visit the immaculate factory and become the first man outside the business to drive the manufacturers new Supercar, the P1. Leno owns every other car the company has produced and was one of the first people to purchase the P1 so it seemed fitting to invite him to experience the car first. The P1 is entirely handmade, as you will see in the video, in a space where 61 technicians build it from start to finish in 24 steps. At 1 million dollars plus and limited to 375 it’ll be hard to get your hands on one, that’s if any are delivered to Australia at all.
