Hosted by legendary comedian and “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, the series explores our obsession with all things automotive. From classic cars to supercars and everything in-between, Jay is hitting the road to discover the most exciting, weird and wonderful vehicles ever made and meet the passionate people behind their wheels. Each one-hour themed episode features a mix of stunts, challenges, reviews, and celebrity interviews that showcases the colorful history of the automobile. Whether he’s exploring the story of an iconic brand, road-testing the newest super car, or investigating the latest automotive innovations, there is no wheel Jay won’t get behind to tell the story of our love affair with the car.
About Jay Leno: Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

Thank god for Shelby taking the great looking AC car and finishing it off with a great engine. Brits would never have thought of that. The AC ACE and AC ACCECA are worth looking up.

Jay what a treat to see you in this amazing original 427 S/C. I'm 71 grew up in Walnut Creek CA - my dad used to take me to Laguna Seca in the 60's when these were running. I wanted one sooooo bad! There was a dark green one + a yellow one with black stripes in Walnut Creek back then. As a 15 year old on my bicycle I used to drives by and dream of owning the dark green one which was for sale. I never did get one. Such a work of raw growling art! Thank you Jay!

My favorite car of all time. We hit hiked to the beach in 1965. Guy picked us up. He never went up 100 mph and passed every car in Malibu Cyn even around corners. I knew 3 kids that went over the cliffs aNd died. So when we got to Malibu we got out. He was going to the city for something . We hitched with someone else. He was nuts. A friend he’s a kit one 500 hp I take it.

A friend of mine in college had a real SC that he used to drive around the small town of Amherst, MA. I remember trying to have a conversation with him over the sound of the engine at idle. First of all, every body panel was visibly vibrating. Second, the sound was exactly as the sound of this car in the video. That was 1965. I am hearing it again with perfect clarity 55 years later. He now lives north of LA and last I saw him claimed to still own the SC. He actually owned two of them at one point after college.

So what I don’t get is you can build a car that size and that weight in 1965. Fast forward to 2021 and a Mazda MX-5 is practically the same size and weight minus all the horsepower. Why after 55 years we can not build something like this which doesn’t cost a fortune? I guess regulation?

I was thinking it was a million dollar car....silly me, that was ten yrs ago. Only a handful of people in the world that get to drive one of the 23 real cars. Best video ever.....would have been one of a kind if he could have thrashed it properly. Carrol was showing off in one of his personal SC cars and blew the engine(possibly his 'Super Snake'?). And then there was his 0-100-0 claim that few, if any, could achieve.

Hey little Cobra, don't you know you're going to shut em down. Rip Chords 1963..
It’s crazy to think that this was originally supposed to be a 2.0 or 3.0 Litre engined car.
2300lbs with 427 cubic inches of motivation. Getting the hook up is a science.

I'd love a chance to sit down and talk cars with you one day. :-)

AC Ace is a nice looking car. With today's technology, Chinese could make a better version though. Not sure why this is not happening. I guess it's either regulations, or the market is too small for these.

Did you know that Curt Hamilton from Cal Automotive still has 1 of the original moulds fot the original Shelby Cobras, in fact he was the guy making the fiberglass body parts for Carrol Shelby. and he still has an original mould used to make the original Shelby Cobras. Wow.that must be worth somthing to a Shelby nut.
