It’s easy to forget that Jay Leno is retired, with how often we see him in the automotive world, discussing new and old vehicles and giving us all a closer look at some of the most spectacular cars ever created. Most recently, that was a hands-on look at the Dodge Challenger Demon 170 with Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis. Now, it’s a 47-minute run-time with a guest spot from the Executive Chief Engineer of America’s Sports Car, giving us all a closer look at the 655-horsepower hybrid Corvette E-Ray.

Jay Leno Corvette E-Ray First Drive: Details

The video opens with the hardest working man in show business, automotive enthusiasm’s only living A-lister, Jay Leno, behind the wheel of the revolutionary new Corvette. We get to see the car on the road, with Jay calling the Corvette E-Ray “arguably the most complicated consumer product on the market,” which is saying a lot. This section is coupled with excellent 6.2L LT2 V8 engine sounds paired with the front e-motor that almost sounds like a supercharger whine, which is a pretty cool combination.

Following this sequence, Tadge Juechter and Jay Leno take a good chunk of time discussing a slew of fascinating tidbits regarding the game-changing supercar alongside a pre-production E-Ray and a life-size cut-away model, both of which wear the fantastic Sea Wolf Gray Tri-Coat paint color. This helps give an even greater picture of what’s underneath the car as if the prototype itself was cut away.

At around the 25-minute mark, the two embark on the road again, where they stay for the remainder of the video, which is an exceptional amount of seat time and something that we all can enjoy as the man has a legendary status in the automotive world, one that won’t have anyone questioning if what he’s saying is accurate or not. If you have the time, sit down with some popcorn, pull this video up in full-screen mode, and enjoy.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
