The Reason Why Jay Leno Will Never Own A Ferrari
Jay Leno is one of the most avid car enthusiasts on the planet, and his vast collection of rare cars is an object of envy for every petrolhead. His garage includes its fair share of iconic speed demons like the 2014 McLaren P1, a 2017 Ford GT, and an Audi R8 Spyder, among others, but despite driving his fair share of Ferraris on camera, why doesn’t he have one in his collection?
It appears that the absence of a Prancing Horse has nothing to do with the quality of those cars, but the real deal-breaker for Leno is the dealership experience. On an episode of “Cars and Culture with Jason Stein,” Leno said, “You're spending an extraordinary amount of money, you should be made to feel like a customer,” but didn’t go into detail about any particular experience.
When it comes to owning a special Ferrari, the saying goes, “You don't choose Ferrari. Ferrari chooses you.” Regardless of a buyer’s fame and fortune, the automaker chooses its customers after a ton of deliberation and whether the customer is really a Ferrari enthusiast who respects the brand's ethos. At the moment, it doesn't look like Leno is on the infamous Ferrari blacklist.
