on December 11, 2013 7:48 AM

When he isn’t lighting up late night talk shows and talking with celebrities, Jay Leno is also a well-reknowned car enthusiast and collector: sounds like the perfect candidate to test drive some cars from the recently-released Gran Turismo 6.

In a new episode of his online series, Jay Leno’s Garage, Jay Leno took a spin with Gran Turismo 6 by driving one of the cars he owns in his collection of almost 200 different vehicles. In particular, you can see Leno test drive a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado digitized for the game, along with a Mercedes-Benz AMG concept car designed specifically for Gran Turismo 6: Leno even got to use a genuine force-feedback wheel to drive the cars in-game.

After having Jay Leno drive some of the cars in Gran Turismo 6 and enjoying the authenticity and realism of their driving, the game’s creator Kazunori Yamauchi commented:

“We love Jay’s knowledge and enthusiasm for cars. It’s great having the Toronado in the game. I have driven it in the game and it’s a real challenge.”
