Jay Leno takes his new toy - the Koenigsegg Trevita CCRX - for a quick spin


Jay Leno became famous because, at one point, he was a really funny comedian. Despite losing some of his mojo as a stand-up wit, Leno remains a deity within the auto industry for his unbridled passion for anything that has four wheels and goes really, really fast.

On the other hand, Leno’s exposure to some of the world’s most exotic cars has set his standards pretty high, so when a car makes even Jay Leno giggle like a kid having one too many lollipops, you know you’re dealing with more than just a fine piece of machinery. That’s exactly what Leno looked like when he sat behind the wheel of his new Koenigsegg Trevita CCRX, which was personally hand-delivered to him by no less than company owner and founder Christian von Koenigsegg.

The Koenigsegg Trevita is powered by a custom 4.8-liter V8 engine which outputs 1018 hp. It comes equipped with Koenigsegg Shimmering Diamond Weave bodywork, double carbon wing, paddle-shift, inconell exhaust system, carbon ceramic brakes with ABS, hydraulic lifting system, infotainment system, tire monitoring system, chrono instrument cluster, and airbags.

With only three such models in existence, you could say that Leno is in possession of one of the rarest supercars in the world and he wasn’t subtle about bringing his ride out on the streets of LA to show it off. Hey, if we had a Trevita CCRX in our garages, we’d be flaunting it out for the world to see too.
