Video: Jay Leno Got The First US-Spec McLaren P1
Jay Leno has taken delivery of a new supercar. What else is new, right? This time, though, Leno’s new baby isn’t just any supercar; it’s actually the first US-Spec McLaren P1 delivered to a private owner.
McLaren of Beverly Hills made the confirmation of Leno’s historic new ride and boy, is it pretty to look at. Dressed in a Volcano Yellow finish, Leno’s new prized purchase —all $1.4 million worth — is as groundbreaking as it comes in the supercar world.
Featuring a litany of technological advancements, the P1 is the crowning achievement of McLaren engineering. The P1 that has taken the mantle of being the fastest and most powerful McLaren ever built. And it runs on hybrid technology, too.
Leno has never been shy about tossing his money around when it comes to high-prized exotics. The comedian is a well-documented gearhead with a car collection that would make Imelda Marcos’ shoe collection look tame by comparison. But without the Late Night money rolling in any longer, he may need to tap Jimmy Fallon for a loan if he keeps up at this pace.
Regardless, bow he gets to add another car to his collection, much to his enjoyment and much to our collective envy. Be easy on your new bird, Jay Leno!
