Sometimes its good to take a look into the past and relish in some of the greatest (and biggest) automobiles of the past century. Today, we, alongside our favourite Jay Leno (the man with the most desirable car collection on the planet) take a look at a golden oldie that was pretty much the ‘it’ car of the early 70’s.
Say hello to a genuine, beautifully restored, 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 Kompressor.
Instead of high-tech hybrids and sexy super cars, Jay takes us on a ride in an old classic, relishing in the huge mass that is this German tank. Considering it’s size, it also comes as no surprise that the Mercedes-Benz 600 Kompressor weighs a whopping 3 tonnes! (more…)
So, what would you do if you are the happy, proud and no doubt protective owner of an all new McLaren P1? You would want to protect it so it stays in its prestine condition for the rest of eternity, am I right?
Well, that is what Jay Leno – former talk show host and swoon worthy car collector – did immediately when he got his McLaren P1 (because obviously Jay Leno owns a brand new McLaren P1…)
Jealousy aside, Jay invite chis viewers of his popular YouTube channel, Jay Leno’s Garage, to come with and witness as his latest addition to his ever growing car collection gets wrapped in a protective coating that will keep it looking spiff and spam for years to come – perhaps not for the rest of eternity, but, close enough.

Since retiring from his job as a late night talk show host, Jay Leno has kept himself busy with a few things; most of them being cars. His all new, online-based tai show, ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ is a popular watch among many a petrol head.
This week, Jay has somewhat of a special episode in store for his viewers. He took on of Italy’s most famous (and lets add, beautiful) races, the Mille Miglia.
And of course, him being Jay Leno and all, he did in utter style – in a classic, stunningly beautiful, Jaguar XK120.
The Mille Miglia, for those of you who don;t know, is an annual, 1000 mile race in Italy that stretches from Brescia to Rome and back. The first ever Mille Miglia was held in 1927 and was a full-on endurance race until 1957. However, in 1977 the race was reinstated as a ‘regularity race’ for vintage and classic cars. (more…)
