So what, I hear you say? Somebody does Top Gear every episode. True enough, and some of them, like Michael Gambon, are witty, intelligent and fun. Some are not. But Jay Leno is special. At least to petrol-heads.
Jay Leno, probably best known for his US chat show (retrd.) – and his hosting of the launch of the new Jaguar XJ – is the personification of the wealthy, true petrol-head. For the first time Jeremy will have a guest who probably knows more about more cars than he does. Jay certainly owns more cars than most of us could manage in a lifetime. And – for the first time – we might see an American who can actually manage a ‘Stick-Shift’.
But for those of you who don’t know just how extensive Jay Leno’s car loving goes, nip along to Jay Leno’s Garage where you can get some idea of the man’s interests and cars. He doesn’t own one or two nice cars, he owns four warehouses full!
So Jay gets to do ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ and torment the Stig. He also gets to go to the Top Gear Site Office we’ve seen in other episodes.
Jay’s put a video up on his own site which we’ve put below.
