You Won’t Believe How Much Jay Leno Spent to Build His Luxury Car Collection!
Most of Jay Leno’s fans might know the renowned actor for his comical performances and hosting prowess, but what they don’t know is that he’s also an avid car collector. These days, the public noticed how Jay hops from one luxurious car to another, all with astounding price tags. It leaves his fans curious as to when did his obsession for vehicles started. Take a sneak peek on Jay Leno’s expensive car collection and how much he spent to build it!
In an interview with CNBC, Jay Leno revealed his obsession for automobiles started even before he became a famous comedian and actor. Back then, Jay said he remembered working as a car salesman in Los Angeles during the day while honing his acting skills by night.
While his main goal back then was to become a successful actor, he revealed that he developed a fascination for automobiles and started building his collection. At that time, he only settled on buying affordable cars since his salary was not high enough to purchase expensive automobiles.
Jay recalled the ’37 Ford pickup truck which became his first car. The problem was that it didn’t run as smoothly as they anticipated — probably due to the fact that. However, his father offered to fix the truck while Jay spent two years working on getting a driver’s license. From there on, Jay never stopped on saving a portion of his money to buy cars until he built his massive car empire! Check out the other luxurious cars hiding in Jay’s garage!
This vehicle runs on biodiesel with powerful top-speed features. According to auto experts, this car can go so incredibly fast that it can even blow out a window! What makes this vehicle memorable is that Jay himself designed the automobile in collaboration with General Motors.
1994 McLaren F1
Some of Jay Leno’s luxurious vehicles includes a 1994 McLaren F1 with a whopping $12 million price tag! This automobile features a 6.1-liter V-12 engine capable of generating 627 horsepower that can go up to 240 miles/hour. It can also go up to 60 miles for only 3.2 seconds! This car dominated the auto industry during the 1990s and remained a golden standard of vehicles to beat.

Trevita may be one of the rarest cars in the world, but Jay surely didn’t miss grabbing this masterpiece. The vehicle can run up to 254 miles/hour and go up to 60 miles/hour in less than three seconds! Jay become one of the only two owners of this automobile in the world!
