Is it me or does Jay Leno look like he just woke up? Here we have another episode of Jay Leno’s garage, the web show where we get to watch Jay drive all manner of uber car through the hills of California. In this episode we see Jay getting ready to drive the 720 hp Tramontana R, a Spanish super car that is meant to take on the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti. Weighing in at 2700 lbs. and powered by a twin-turbo Mercedes V12, the Tramontana R should be good for an easy 210 + mph top speed. In fact I remember seeing an unfinished version of this thing at last years Concours de Elegance at Pebble Beach.
I think the whole Formula 1 concept is pretty cool, but I highly doubt there will ever be a market for it even amongst the super wealthy. I suppose if you’re really eccentric and hung like a fruit bat this car would make sense, but otherwise I think it’s something that for $495,000, most car guys will take a pass on.
