If you haven’t noticed, Jay Leno has really focused on classic cars in his past few episodes. Last time he brought a custom-built 1971 Datsun 510 into his garage and in this latest episode, Leno turned his attention to a 1951 Kaiser Drag’n. Along with Leno you will see industrial designer Keith Charvonia who needed more than eight years to develop this amazing restoration and modification.

This heavily modified and customized Kaiser has received a B-body Caprice chassis and the Caprice also donated the engine. Additionally, the exterior kit makes it look even cooler, plus that blue exterior paint seems to fit just perfectly!

Jay Leno was pretty impressed by the Drag’n, especially after pushed it to the limits on the road. Watch the video and let us know in the comments section below if you agree with him!

In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno takes a break from all those supercars he usually has in his garage and turns his attention to a 1971 Datsun 510; not a standard one, but one rebuilt almost from the ground.

Alongside Jay you will see Greg Elliott, the owner of the 1971 Datsun 510 who is explaining all the updates he made to his car. Painted in a very cool blue, this 510 delivers a total of 150 horsepower and it is for sure a neat car to drive and a dream car for any car Datsun addicted out there. They also take the car out on the road for a test drive, with Jay driving of course!

To our knowledge, this is the first video review of the Aston Martin Vanquish , which has yet to make its way into U.S. showrooms. It’s true, Jay Leno didn’t get too deep into it, but still, he explain a few more details on this amazing supercar.

According to him, the Vanquish is "the classic example of what a grand touring car should be," and we certainly agree with him. It has style, it is aggressive, but elegant in the same time and it is pretty powerful. The Vanquish is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that delivers an impressive 565 horsepower at 6,750 rpm and delivers a peak torque of 457 pound-feet. It can go up to a top speed of 186 mph.

We would have liked it even more if Jay would have taken the car to the race track and pushed it to its limits, but it is still a pretty good review!

Right after SRT unveiled the new Viper to the world, Jay Leno reviewed the pilot car. Unfortunately, Jay couldn’t legally take it on the road, so we didn’t get to see his typical test drive.

Now, the new supercar is back in Jay Leno’s Garage for a more detailed review and the long-awaited test drive. The car was brought to him by SRT CEO Ralph Gilles himself. In fact, Gilles – a true car guy – actually drive it 5,000 miles across country, so Jay could feature it.

Before its date with the track, Jay took the Viper on the typical drive that he is known for. This drive culminated in a fantastic burnout, and Jay and Gilles mocking Chrysler’s former owners, Daimler, for not knowing what a burnout was. After its relatively calm road test, the Viper was pushed to its limits at the Willow Springs test track.

Watch the video and see if the new Viper’s on-the-road performance managed to impress Leno.

For a man who probably has just about any kind of vehicle created, it still must have been pretty cool for Jay Leno to welcome a vehicle like the Local Motors’ Rally Fighter. to his garage.

Looking the part of an SUV with features coming from a variety of other vehicles, including a Corvette engine with a Chevy transmission, a Ford truck rear end with Honda Civic taillights, Mazda Miata door handles, and an F-150 steering wheel. Talk about a melting pot of a rally racer.

Another unique quality of the Rally Fighter is that Local Motors builds each of these models with the help of the people buying the actual cars. That factor, in itself, allows the person who signs the check to have some level of control on how he wants the car built.

As for Jay, well, he always seems to find something interesting to say about the cars that make an appearance at his garage. This one isn’t any different. Check out this rather interesting episode of Jay Leno’s garage by clicking on the video above!

If you’re an automaker, you know you’ve just hit the bingo bonanza when the sports car you built isn’t out in dealerships yet but is already garnering enough attention to supplant the Super Bowl.

Ok, maybe not that far, but you get the picture.

The kind of buzz the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been staggering, so much so that it’s done its fair share of media and publicity rounds despite making its debut less than two weeks ago.

The American sports car’s latest stop happened to be on the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage where Leno himself got a chance to get a first look at the Corvette C7 Stingray. Needless to say, the comedian/auto enthusiast was enamored with the Corvette, even going so far as to say the sports car’s design was revolutionary.

Leno also got a chance to talk to the Ed Welburn, GM’s Vice President of Global Design, who gave the comedian a historical lesson on the design evolution of the car described by Leno as revolutionary.

Jay then got the envy-inducing opportunity to drive the new Corvette around the block. Of course, the show ended as Jay pulled the Stingray out of the garage and we didn’t get to see any of the drive. So much for Beyoncé being the first celebrity to drive the Stingray .

Volvo unveiled the S60 Polestar Concept at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and it caught everyone’s attention, thanks to its impressive 508-horsepower output and its announced top speed of more than 186 mph. So it’s no surprise that Jay Leno decided to review the concept.

In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, he had invited Hans Baathm, Managing Director at PoleStar Performance, who explains the idea and the technology behind the S60 Polestar Concept.

The S60 Polestar is powered by an inline six-cylinder engine that is tuned to deliver an un-Volvo-like 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque. With the extra 208 horsepower, the S60 Polestar will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 186 mph.

Watch the video to see if Jay Leno will take the S60 Polestar over the BMW M3.

In the latest episode of his famous show, Jay Leno has reviewed one of the Jaguar models from his collection — a one-of-a-kind XK-E . The model was produced by Jaguar between 1961 and 1974 and combines good looks with great-for-the-era performance.

This particular XK-E as specially customized by Jason Len from XK Unlimited several years ago – a neat side story is that Jay actually bought the car from Len. It is considerably shorter than the original car with numerous updates made to the body panels and to the car’s performance figures. It is powered by a 5.3-liter V-12 engine updated with Weber carburetors and a unique soundtrack, so hearing it on the streets is pure music to the ears. The car features a sporty coat of red paint that makes it even sexier.

Check the video and see what Jay Leno has to say about this amazing car, and why he wanted to have it in his collection. Enjoy!

For the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno has turned his attention from the supercars he usually reviews and reviewed the latest addition to the Fiat lineup: the 500L . Alongside Jay, you will see Tim Kuniskis, head of Fiat North America who is offering us a few more details on the car.

The 500L is two feet longer than the standard 500, but it offers 42 percent more cabin room and is just as fun to drive, according to Fiat. What do you think, does Jay Leno agree with this statement? Watch the video and you will find out!

As a reminder, the 500L will be offered with two petrol engines - the 101 horsepower 1.4-liter in-line four-cylinder engine from the standard 500 and a TwinAir version - as well as one diesel turbocharged 1.3 MultiJet II engine.

In the same episode, Leno announced he will update his Abarth with the Esseesse kit and will bring it next week in Detroit.

While most of us are waiting to see the successor to the Lamborghini Gallardo , the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage has put Jay face to face with two of the most amazing Gallardo models ever, the LP 570-4 and the LP 550-2 . Alongside Jay you will see Andrew Romanowski, President of Lamborghini Club America, offering up all the details you wanted to know on the two supercars.

As a reminder, the LP 570-4 version is powered by a V-10 engine that delivers a total of 552 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 398 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. This version can hit a top speed 201 mph. On the other hand, the LP 550-2 gets a V-10 engine with 550 horsepower and it can hit a top speed of 199 mph.

Watch the video and see which of the two Gallardo models Jay Leno’s favorite is.
