This page was last updated on March 26, 2022. If you’re a fan of Jay Leno, probably the world’s most renowned gearhead, you’ll be pleased to hear that we’ve updated this article to include even more pricey rides from his garage, as well as extra information about the cars currently on the list.
Leno’s passion for automobiles has turned into a profitable professional opportunity, as he now hosts his own vehicle show, Jay Leno’s Garage. We covered some of the weirdest automobiles featured on Jay’s new show in August of last year. Now, let’s take a brief look at some of Leno’s most expensive automobiles.
$1 Million+ for a 2017 Ford GT
The base price of the 2017 Ford GT was $450,000, so some may be perplexed as to why it’s now worth over a million dollars. It all comes down to supply and demand, and only a select few are able to purchase a fresh new Ford GT.
The Ford GT stands out from the rest of the Ford lineup. This blue oval car is closer to Italian exotics than your usual Ford grocery-getter, with 650 horsepower from a mid-mounted, turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
$1+ Million 1963 Chrysler Turbine
Jay Leno is currently the proud owner of a Chrysler turbine-powered coupe with a fascinating past. The Chrysler turbine was only constructed in 50 units for testing in 1962 by the American carmaker.
Only 55 turbine cars were ever constructed throughout the car’s projected lifespan. Only 9 models are still in existence, and one of them was recently posted for sale. The car’s value is estimated to be well over $1 million. The turbine automobile produces 130 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque in its basic configuration.
$1.35 million for a 2014 McLaren P1.
The McLaren P1 is said to provide one of the rawest and most violent driving sensations of any modern hypercar on the planet. The latest version of the British offering recently competed in a drag race against a Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder, resulting in an entertaining spectacle.
Jay Leno has a lengthy history with McLaren and was able to secure the first-ever P1 to arrive in the United States. The vehicle is painted yellow and has a top speed of 217 miles per hour (electronically limited).
$1.8 Million for a 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Coupe
When the Mercedes SL300 Gullwing was released over half a century ago, it was a car that was ahead of its time. The Tri-Star brand is known for producing some of the world’s most expensive automobiles, so it’s safe to assume that Jay Leno’s flawlessly restored 300SL Gullwing will fetch a significant sum at any reputable auction around the world.
Leno is the third owner of his 300SL Gullwing, a former race vehicle with a 3-liter 6-cylinder engine that produced 180 horsepower at the wheels after Leno’s team restored it.
$2.56 million for a 1939 Lagonda V12.
Lagonda, a British luxury brand, is rumored to be working on a futuristic high-riding car. Lagonda, on the other hand, was known in 1939 for producing some of the world’s most sporty automobiles. The organization was in charge of creating stunning replicas of Aston Martin automobiles.
Former Rolls-Royce designers created many Lagonda models, and locating an original Lagonda V12 is nearly hard nowadays. This is most likely why Jay Leno had a custom-made duplicate of the famed roadster built for him, complete with a brilliant red paint job.
3.5 million dollars for a 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400
The Lamborghini Miura is often considered the forerunner of today’s hypercars. Only 764 examples of the stunning Italian thoroughbred were produced when it was first debuted in 1966.
Prices for the Raging Bull brand’s vintage sports automobile have soared in recent years, and many examples have been hidden behind the doors of world-famous museums. Rare autos can also be found at Jay Leno’s Garage. Leno owns a stunning 1967 Miura P400 with a 3.9-liter V12 Lamborghini engine.
$3 to $4 million for a 1928 Bentley Speed 6
This British luxury brand has created several fascinating models over the years. Prior to becoming identified with opulence, Bentley created some of the world’s most well-crafted and sporty vehicles. The 1928 Bentley Speed 6 was one such racing model.
Between 1926 and 1930, the nameplate was only in production for four years. The Bentley Speed 6, which was based on the company’s rolling chassis, was only produced in 544 units. In 1929 and 1930, the Bentley Speed 6 dominated the arduous 24 Hours of Le Mans championship.
$4.8 Million Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is a work of art in engineering. The car’s bodywork is made of carbon fiber and is painted in a silver-white color scheme. The automobile has exceptional acceleration capabilities, accelerating from a complete stop to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
The manufacturer also says that the CCXR Trevita will reach 125 mph in 8.75 seconds. The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is one of Jay Leno’s most technologically advanced cars, with a top speed of 254+ mph.
The McLaren F1 costs $12 million.
The McLaren F1 is one of the most well-known supercars of the twentieth century. The T50 supercar is built on the foundation of famed automotive designer Gordon Murray’s design. The McLaren F1 set a Guinness World Record for the fastest production automobile in the world at a speed of 240.1 mph during its peak.
The production period of the McLaren F1 lasted barely 6 years, from 1992 to 1998, and only 106 cars were ever built. As a result, Leno’s F1 is one of the most valuable models in his collection.
$20 Million Duesenberg Walker Coup in 1934
Jay Leno is a showman, and the Hollywood star never misses an opportunity to flaunt some of his most valuable and unusual cars. Jay recently gave a tour of his Duesenberg Walker Coupe, the only aerodynamic variant of the marque on the market.
The automobile, which was originally sold for $25,000 in 1934, is now estimated to be worth about $20 million. The car is powered by a massive inline 8-cylinder engine with downdraft carburetors that generate 265 horsepower.
The 2006 EcoJet is a one-of-a-kind aircraft.
The EcoJet, which belongs to Leno, is a one-of-a-kind supercar that can best be defined as a technology demonstration. EcoJet was created by Leno in conjunction with General Motors and debuted at the 2006 SEMA exhibition in Las Vegas.
The green aircraft, understandably, drew attention not only for its remarkable design but also for its environmentally friendly drivetrain. The automobile was powered by a biodiesel-fueled Honeywell Lt-101 turbine engine with 650 horsepower. The vehicle was constructed on a modified Z06 aluminum frame with magnesium components.
