Jay Leno owns more cars than we have numbers for. In his collection there are many classics (Lamborghini Miura), some rarities (Lamborghini Reventon) and now, a new icon of our age: the McLaren MP4-12C.

In this video, one of TG's best ever stars in our reasonably priced car talks us through his trip to the McLaren Technical Centre in Woking where he got a tour of the factory, and a lesson from test driver Chris Goodwin. And the lesson takes place at none other than our humble little track (where most of the MP4's development took place).

One of the world's biggest petrolheads gets one of the world's fastest cars. Want one?
