Attending Monterey Car Week should be on every car lover’s bucket list. No matter what automotive tribe you hail from, this collection of events is sure provide some truly memorable moments. Droves of the finest antiques, classics, race cars and supercars show up to partake in the festivities, creating an atmosphere of contagious enthusiasm that sticks with you long after it’s over. It’s like gearhead nirvana. No surprise, then, that preeminent car guy Jay Leno can usually be found milling about, such as in this review of The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering 2015.

If you were unaware, The Quail is one of the premiere Monterey Car Week events, bringing together hundreds of top-shelf sports cars, rare collectibles, and of course, the affluent individuals that call them their own. In this 34-minute video, Jay gets a little taste of everything. First is an interview with Christian von Koenigsegg, who discusses the venerable One:1. Afterwards, Rob Dickinson talks about the beautiful customized 911s created by Singer Vehicle Design. From timeless looks to cutting-edge technology, Jay then steps up to the Acura booth to check out the new NSX. Finally, there’s a trip to AMG for an in-depth conversation about the high-performance division’s evolution from tuner to full-blown manufacturer, culminating in a ride in a 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S.
