Movie Cars Star In A Celeb-Heavy Jay Leno’s Garage Episode

In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, the famous TV host gets an inside look at what it takes to complete some stunts for a movie, how to create an epic chase scene, and two movie cars. If this sounds like a lot to pack into a short YouTube video, you’re right; that’s why it’s a full-length episode that’s 45 minutes long.

Before we get too far into it, we should point out that Leno samples the original Ford Mustang Bullitt. We’ve seen the Denim King drive the classic Bullitt before, so we’ll gloss over that part of the episode.

It all starts with a bang as actor, singer, and comedian Jamie Foxx shows up in a Rezvani Tank. We’ve seen Foxx posing next to the Tank before, so we weren’t really surprised to see the actor make an appearance in the rugged SUV. We were, though, surprised to see him pull off a reverse 180 on the first try.

Shortly after arriving, Leno and Foxx are joined by Jay Lynch, a professional stunt driver with more than 200 movies under his belt. Lynch teaches Foxx how to do a few stunts in a 707-hp Dodge Challenger Hellcat – and while we won’t provide any spoilers, it’s safe to say Leno and Foxx had loads of fun.

The second part of the episode is where Ben Collins enters the fray. He brings a Lotus Evora 400 to the party to help Leno create a chase scene with a helicopter. While we all know that Collins used to be The Stig on Top Gear, he’s also known for being James Bond’s stunt driver.

The other major part of the episode is the 1955 Chevrolet Gasser that musician James Taylor drove in the film “Two-Lane Blacktop” back in 1971. The movie sees two men go drag racing across the nation and the classic Chevy was one of the main stars. Leno manages to track down one of the three vehicles used in the film and reunites Taylor with the car. If you’re a fan of the movie, you’ll definitely enjoy the segment.

It’s nice to see the YouTube channel upload a full-length episode, and for anyone that’s got 45 minutes to spare, it’s a very nice watch.

  • Honestly, the TV show is getting worse. The real enthusiast go to his Youtube series instead.

    Jay’s really in his element when he’s doing cars rather than celebrity chat. I’m not into that game show bit at the end and I liked the old car adverts that he used during the Donald Osbourne segment. I’d rather he returned to that.
