Jay Leno is known for his incredible car collection and his latest addition includes a $230,000 McLaren MP4-12C which he chose to unveil at the Supercar Sunday show, held at Westfield Promenade Mall 6100 Topanga Canyon Boulevard Woodland Hills. Luckily, and not surprisingly, someone was on hand to videotape the unveiling.
Leno took all precautions necessary in the development of his MP4-12C, even heading over to the McLaren Test Center in Britain a few months ago to pay a visit. He also had the chance to test the car before actually buying it. So, apparently there are a few advantages to being a huge car collector and late night talk show host.
Leno’s McLaren is painted in a very cool orange and is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 weighing only 439 lbs. The engine produces 592hp at 7,000rpm and 443 lb-ft. of torque between 3,000 and 7,000rpm. It can hit a top speed of 205 mph.
