Think what you will about Jay Leno’s comedy, his car knowledge and enthusiasm for automotive culture are unmatched. Leno’s garage in Burbank is a one-man car museum. And while he no longer hosts of the Tonight Show, he is still in front of the camera with his YouTube series Jay’s Garage.

To start off the new year, Leno had a chance to test drive a pre-production version of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Leno was a huge fan of the new Vette. There is no greater bang for the buck. As he notes, you could either get a solitary LaFerrari or 18 Corvettes. Leno was so excited his right foot got a little heavy and the test drive ended up with him being pulled over by California’s finest.
