Video: Jay Leno gives us the low-down on the 2011 Ford Mustang GT

Jay Leno - yes, that man with about 1,000 cars yet still wears the same blue shirt and Wrangler pants - is an authority when it comes to vehicles. While we don’t always agree with some of the things he says about our favorite cars, we respect his opinions nonetheless. Well, at least for the most part.

In the latest installment of Jay Leno’s Garage, the affable comedian makes no bones about his affection for the 2011 Ford Mustang GT. Justifiably so, the 2011 Mustang GT is one sweet piece of machinery given that for just over $30,000, you can own a car with 412 ponies on it, not to mention a fuel economy of 26 mpg on the highway. Leno even takes the Mustang out for a little joy ride on the California highway. He goes about enjoying the whole ride and even mentions how it’s got some German-like quality in it, which we imagine bodes well for a car that’s looking to make a name for itself not just against its local counterparts, but against some of the world’s best automotive machines.

Check out the video to see more of ol’ Jay and the 2011 Mustang GT.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I agree that the speed performance of this car is quite impressive though its mustang! I really love their modification for this car it look so great now!

Well, I guess from now on, no one will laugh at this car anymore. And I think the good point about the Mustang is that although its kind of vintage car still Ford tries to make it more modern and the performance is great as well.

Even Jay Leno got to appreciate this car. Well, its just a proof that still a lot of people look forward on its production. And I think among its competitor the Ford Mustang really stands

Who have said that Mustang needs to be killed and replaced by its successor!hmm. What I like about this car is it innovates itself over the past decades. And I got to see from them everytime that release a new car.

I am wholly impressed by the power, but something doesn’t add up. If the engine is really making more than 438hp, wouldn’t Ford say it makes at least 427hp to one up the Camaro again? I’d think that Ford would really like to advertise the fact that V6 vs V6, V8 vs V8 the Mustang

Jay leno’s got some taste with the car. He choose what’s right and can give him a little more bang on his carrer.
