The perks of being Jay Leno seemingly has no bounds these days. Whereas most of us would call it a lucky day just to own a car that has four wheels and takes us from point A to point B, Leno’s definition of a lucky day is finally receiving the McLaren P1 .
Oh, to be that guy.
In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Leno finally gets his hands on his personal P1 and proceeds to make the rest of the auto world green with envy with his proclamation that he had already put "1,000 miles" on it. Care to give us a ride in that mighty machine, Jay?
But the real meat of the episode focused on his guest, Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive. Together, the two talked shop about McLaren Automotive’s history and the success the company has had since it first introduced the F1 a little over 20 years ago. From there, the discussion eventually moved to the P1, the company’s latest supercar that has pretty much exceeded all the expectations everyone has set on it since the time development began. He also tried to trick Flewitt into revealing the rumored 7-minute Nurburgring time of the P1.
Or as Leno puts it, the P1 has made even the most hardened of auto journalists "gush over it like school children." To that, we can’t argue with him.
Check out the rest of the episode as Jay takes his new P1 out for a drive on the streets of Los Angeles. Chances are, you’d be dying to ride shotgun by the time the episode’s over.
