Jay Leno gets behind the wheel of a 950-horsepower LaFerrari at Willow Springs Raceway.
Jay Leno owns and has driven some pretty impressive vehicles. From a 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350H, to a one-of-a-kind jet-powered Cadillac supercar, and everything in between. But even with his extensive collection in tact, Leno is a noted Ferrari hold out. Maybe this will change his mind.
Longtime collector David Lee decided to take Jay and his team up to Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosamond, California, to hopefully make a convert out of him yet. Armed with five of the most iconic vehicles ever produced by the Italian marque, Jay and Lee took to the track in what can only be described as Italian automotive bliss.
Wielding a 288 GTO, an F40, an F50, an Enzo, and of course, a new LaFerrari – each one of these vehicles representing the pinnacle of the brand at that moment in history – the group leisurely lapped the course, soaking in the performance of each respective model.
Leno took the wheel of the LaFerrari first, which features a 950-horsepower (708-kilowatt) hybrid V12 setup, of course, while Lee brought up the rear in his 395-horsepower (294-kilowatt) 288 GTO. His brothers filled the seats of the F40, F50, and Enzo.
“I love David’s passion for Ferrari,” says Leno, “ and I love the fact that he actually drives them all. I love the fact even more that he lets me drive them all!"
