While many celebrities prefer to keep their private lives out of the public eye, late night talk show host Jay Leno enjoys sharing his personal passion for exotic cars with the world. Haute Living takes a look at some of the vehicles in Leno’s personal collection.
Jay Leno has a fleet of exclusive and limited edition cars that amounts to over 100 and growing. He also has a collection of motorbikes that is already over 90. Leno, a self-proclaimed car enthusiast, rose to fame in 1992 as a late night comedian but his affinity for cars began when he worked his first job with Ford Dealership in 1967. To take care of all of his cars, Leno has four “nannies” who look over the vehicles, which are housed in a three football-field size warehouses.
When Leno first arrived in California, his first car was the classic 1955 Buick Roadmaster. Now, he owns approximately 29 classic cars including the 1959 Fiat Millecento, 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Business Coupe, 1966 Ford Galaxie, 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa, 1966 NSU Spider, 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe.

For Antique cars, Leno owns about 15 including a 1929 DuPont Le Mans Speedster, the 1937 Cord 812 Westchester and three vintage Mercedes produced in the 1930s which were never seen before.
Though Leno’s Classic and Antique collections are certainly impressive, he owns the most number of Supercars including a Lamborghini LP700 Aventador in dark blue. He also recently purchased a 2011 Audi R8 Spyder 5.2 V-10 FSI Quattro. Leno is one of ten owners of the exclusive Bertone Mantide.
