Leno drives a one-of-a-kind Lexus Spyder

October 9, 2012 03:35 PM

Jay Leno is a well-known car enthusiast, and after a tour of the Lexus facility in Japan, he had the opportunity to drive one of the most unique cars in the world.

The comedian drove the Spyder on Japan's Fuji Speedway. His test model was the only roofless version of the LFA Roadster that is going to be built, making for one unique spin around the track. While the talk show host has driven his fair share of cars, he was excited to be driving a one-of-a-kind vehicle during an episode of his web series Jay Leno's Garage.

"None feel as refined as this," AutoBlog reports Leno as saying, when discussing how the Spyder compares to other top luxury cars.

Leno first toured the area where the LFA Spyder is constructed. According to Car Buzz, the $375,000 vehicle is built over the course of three days and 90 people are required to hand-assemble the machine. Then the car embarks on a special inspection that features over 7,000 qualities being tested over 10 days. This preliminary vehicle maintenance is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the 560-horsepower machine. The company is only going to create 500 coupes - all of which have already been spoken for.
