We probably don’t need to tell you that comedian/TV host Jay Leno is a car nut who has his own show called, Jay Leno’s Garage; but we will, just for the sake of those few who may not have never heard of him.
Being a triple-A-list celebrity with his own series means that Leno is frequently invited by carmakers to drive their latest and greatest vehicles. Occasionally, he may even go ahead and buy one of them to add to his collection.
This time, the 62-year old TV host was invited to Toyota City in Japan to witness firsthand the construction methods of the Lexus LFA.
Watching the carbon fibers being loomed and Lexus’ employees slowly but methodically, assembling the V10-engined supercar is, in itself, quite interesting.
However, Leno didn’t fly to Japan just to watch the LFA’s assembly line at Toyota’s Motomachi plant. Having already driven the supercar a couple of months ago, he had the chance to drive the only open-top LFA in the world.
It’s a white-colored, right-hand drive model built for a customer who, naturally, is not named. At all times, it remains an open-top since car, as it doesn’t come with any type of roof cover, not even a canvas-style like the old Murcielago.
Lexus has said that the Spyder is a one-off model and has no plans to build another one.
