Jay Leno’s Incredible Car Collection



Jay Leno over the years has spent his incredible late-night talk show net worth on a very exotic car collection. He has his own car care product line, a tv show name ‘Jay Leno’s Garage and he is an avid auto industry regular at local car shows.
Jay has a collection that is around 140 cars worth upwards of $50 million in total. Most of the cars Jay purchases for the collection are rare commodities and will most likely only increase significantly in the future. Take a tour through the king of late night tv’s garage by clicking the Next button below.

Mercer Raceabout

Leno was ecstatic when he got his hands on this 1913 beauty. The design differs from the British Morgan Aero models with its more Model T look. With such a unique design, it’s quite rare to come across one of these, especially one in such pristine condition.

Aptera Electric Car

Every good car collection has variety, and even Leno doesn’t just own classic cars. This electric car is designed to be 100 percent reliant on energy and is as aerodynamic as a car can possibly be for efficient energy use. Try driving up to the casino in one of these!

Ariel Atom

This open vehicle is actually quite legal to drive on public roads, and Leno absolutely loves that wind-in-your-hair experience. Unfortunately, with no roof or windows, you’ll be getting far more than just wind in your hair!

1966 Oldsmobile Toronado

This luxury car was created as Oldsmobile’s response to Buick and all the other car manufacturers who were creating their own special vehicles. Its body remains one of Leno’s favorites amongst his entire collection.

1932 Morgan Three-Wheeler

Back when upstanding British citizens were cruising around in these during the 1930s, they saved a considerable amount of money on road taxes since anything with less than four wheels was considered a motorcycle. Leno proudly drives his “motorcycle” mobile around, and its light-weight design gets great gas mileage!

1937 Fiat Topolino

Leno will cruise around in this little thing just for kicks and giggles. Designed by the famed Italian manufacturer, its name is derived from the Italian word for “little mouse,” which seems more than appropriate.

1969 Lamborghini Miura S

Lamborghini’s Miura S was the first vehicle that was given the name “super car.” It’s one of Leno’s many favorites, a vehicle that he makes sure to use often and maintains in original factory condition to keep it running smoothly.

Duesenberg Chassis

Leno purchased this 1929 classic as-is from a museum and decided to leave the engine exposed. Not only does it look cooler, but it cuts down about 2,000 pounds which allows him to cruise around town with just a little more speed than usual!

1935 Delahaye 135 S

This racing car was manufactured by a French company founded by Emil Delahaye. It may not be one of his most stylish cars, but Leno still takes it out for a drive when he wants to feel like a true Formula One race car driver from the 1930s.

Batman’s Tumbler

Leno may be a classic car guy, but he also has a nerd side! The Chevy V8 Tumbler is a direct replica of the vehicle used in the Dark Knight trilogy, and it’s completely functional. No doubt the sight of the previous Tonight Show host barreling down the highway in a military-grade Batmobile would turn more than a few heads!

Deronda Sports Car

When Leno really has a need for speed, he drags out his Deronda. The Formula One-style race car can reach 60 mph within three seconds flat with its 400 horsepower engine.


This slick car uses a 650 horsepower engine — that’s the same engine size that’s used in helicopters! Leno worked with General Motors, Honeywell, and Alcoa to bring his concept to life, and it remains perhaps his biggest pride and joy. If there’s one car Leno would not want to get into a car accident in, it would be this one for certain.

Excalibur RS

About as fascinating as a miniature car with a sporty look can get, Leno proudly shows this off to all who visit his garage. The body is very unique, in the sense that it includes elements of a hot rod and a street racer.

Koenigsegg Trevita CCXR

This piece of beauty was actually designed in Sweden, despite the country’s reputation amongst car enthusiasts for generally designing weak muscle cars. This supercar, however, is anything but weak. It’s a true feat of automotive engineering.


This 1958 Impala has been completed modernized with electric locks, and yet the original design of the car has remained intact. The interior has those classic tuck-and-roll seats popular in the ‘50s, and this car is really where the California car design originated.

McLaren F1 Redux

Leno can’t help but have a huge grin on his face whenever he cruises around town in his McLaren. The vehicle was designed for maximum interaction between itself and the driver — it has no anti-lock brakes or power braking assist, so what you put into her is what she gives back to you. Its top speed is 240 mph. What are the odds that Leno took out a mortgage on his mansion to purchase this super car?

Morgan Aero Super Sport

Leno is a huge fan of Morgan cars, for both their sleek design and their ease to drive due to the light-weight design. Even with a V8 380 horsepower engine, this thing still gets about 30 miles to the gallon, so it’s quite economical.

Rocket II Trike

Only in America can you drive one of these down the road, though it’ll still have heads turning. The front wheel is actually two tires spliced together for maximum frontal control. The 16-plug Hemi motor has 1,000 horsepower and is essentially the greatest engine for drag racing, so this baby will move along at tremendous speeds.

1931 Shotwell

This car was originally built by 17-year-old Bob Shotwell when he asked his dad for a car and was told they couldn’t afford one. After purchasing various bits of cars from a junkyard, the pieces were then welded together using sheet metal, and a four cylinder engine was placed inside. Once Leno got his hands on it, he lovingly remade it and turned it into one of his most unique vehicles in his garage.

2015 McLaren P1

Leno practically gushes over this car, and he put over 1,000 miles on it in the first week and a half that he bought it. It’s one of 375 that were manufactured by the highly-reputable British manufacturer, and it has such massive torque and drive in its engine that you can easily push 100 mph without even thinking about it. Anyone who bought this would no doubt need a loan, but Leno can more than afford it!

1986 Lamborghini Countach

Despite looking super sleek and completely aerodynamic, the Countach really isn’t at all. Once you reach speeds of 100 mph, the thing drives like a brick, according to Leno. Nonetheless, this is still one of the most striking cars in Leno’s collection, and he still gets a huge thrill from taking it out for a drive every once in a while.

Maserati 3500 GTi

This 1962 roadster was discovered by Leno in a barn, and he spent the greater part of two years restoring it back to its former glory. Now she’s fuel injected and runs silky smooth, and overall has a brand new luster-like sheen.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Leno put a lot of time and love into this to restore its original look. As a teenager, this was always Leno’s dream car due to its fuel injected engine and its revolutionary style, and so he feels especial satisfaction when taking it out for a cruise.

1925 Doble Steam Car

Leno considers this to be the greatest steam car ever built, a revolutionary design that no longer required you to light a match and wait 15 minutes for it to heat up. It was once owned by Howard Hughes, who would commonly get it going up to 135 mph!

1930 Bentley 27 Litre

While it may not look it, this car is massively powerful. Why? Because it has a 27 litre engine — the same engine that was used in P-51 Mustang planes used by the British during WWII. Its height is just under six feet while it’s almost three times longer than a Fiat.

1931 Duesenberg Model J Town Car

During the early ‘30s, this vehicle was considered the epitome of American automotive luxury. When Leno bought this in 2005 from the Levi Strauss family, he did very little to it, making it the only unrestored Duesenberg in the U.S.

1963 Chrysler Turbine Car

Leno wasn’t exactly fantasizing about girls when he was 14, but he did develop a serious crush on this Chrysler at that time. He was more excited by the sound of its engine than the sound of a girl’s voice, and when he finally found one he was as giddy as he was at 14. In fact, it’s only one of two currently in private collections.

Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic SC

The Type 57 Atlantic SC is widely considered to be Bugatti’s sexiest vehicle amongst car enthusiasts. Leno’s car, however, isn’t entirely authentic, since the Type 57 body is a small departure from the car’s original engine and chassis. If this were an original, it’d not only be one of two of its surviving kind, but it’d have a $30 million+ price tag as well! You’d practically have to take out a mortgage to buy that car, for sure.

1963 XKE

When Leno purchased this from a woman who owned it for 50 years, he expected to find a plethora of issues and things falling into disrepair. He was astounded, however, when he discovered that not only was everything 100 percent original on it, but everything was in pristine, near-flawless condition — even the original clock still worked! He accredits this to responsible maintenance and acknowledges that any vehicle can last you a lifetime if you truly take care of it.

1966 Chevrolet Corvair Yenko Stinger

This sexy car was produced by Don Yenko who was commissioned by Chevy to essentially do for them what men like Carroll Shelby did for Ford — create one kickass piece of automotive machinery. Leno considered himself fortunate when he purchased one of the original 100 cars in such immaculate condition.

1939 Lagonda V12

Though it isn’t original, this Lagonda V12 is still a painstakingly-crafted replica of the Le Mans racer. Leno acquired the parts over several years and then custom built it as he received them.

LCC Rocket

This glorified go-kart was conceptualized by Formula One and McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray. The body is extremely light-weight, and its open design is meant to deliver a pure, unprohibited, driving experience.

1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum

Though the Tantrum has been heavily modified from its original design, the classic Charger shape has been retained and the overall feel of it remains intact. A few of its functional aspects have been changed, but overall it still drives very much like it during its heyday.

Chrysler Tank Car

The famed comedian will take this thing out for a spin when he really wants to attract some attention. It’s completely legal to drive, and includes the same engine that was used in an M47 Patton tank. In basic terms, the thing’s got power!

1936 Cord 812

Leno affectionately refers to this as his “baby Duesenberg.” It was the first car ever to feature enclosed headlights as well as a hidden gas cap. Many of its aesthetics were created due to budget restraints, but the result is a design that Leno finds absolutely gorgeous.
