1915 LaBestioni Rusty Two

Our favorite rides are home grown (or built). Today on Jay Leno’s Garage, the LaBestioni Rusty Two is center stage and he picks the brain of creator, Gary Wales. It’s a 1915 ride restored from an abandoned rusted out American LaFrance fire truck. It doesn’t get more American than this. Check it out with Jay, right here:

Listen To The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Ford stunned the crowd on Monday at the Detroit auto show with the debut of the latest Mustang: the 2020 Shelby GT500. The 5.2-liter V-8 engine with its 2.65-liter Eaton supercharger makes some serious noise. So serious, in fact, that it will only pass the California noise regulation in “Normal” mode. If the car is put into “Track” mode, the sound is almost deafening. Ford hasn’t released the horsepower, but with a supercharged V-8 like this, we’d venture to guess around 700-hp.

This monster is set to go on sale this fall. Until then, enjoy this video of the GT500 revved, thanks to Motor Authority. Enjoy.

Jay Leno And The 1910 Buick Bug

Meet the 1910 Buick Bug. Back in the day, Buick built only two 4-cylinder, 622-cubic-inch 60 Specials and naturally Jay Leno got his hands on one. Not only is this racer rare, it’s revolutionary in the aerodynamics department. It was the first racecar to put the driver in the center of the body and that lead to (you guessed it) a whole lot of speed. Check it out, right here:

Flashback Friday: 1913 Mercer Raceabout

For most car buffs, the Mercer Raceabout is probably already in your vocabulary and if it’s not, it should be. Back in 1911, the first Raceabout hit the road and this American supercar played an instrumental role in our auto industry today. This is the ultimate Brass Era roadster and Jay Leno has managed to get his hands on one. Check it out, right here:

The American Supercar With 1,750-HP

We’re serving up quite a treat for you today. A first-look video of the SSC Tuatara. We have Miller Motorcars to thank for this footage shot in Connecticut of the second pre-production supercar from West Richland, Washington.

The Tuatara has been developed by Shelby SuperCars as a successor to the Ultimate Aero that dates back to 2006. And it definitely hasn’t been an easy project. The Tutara has been under development for almost 10 years. It was first revealed in the summer of 2011 at Pebble Beach and SSC has been working on getting it to production ever since.

The specs we know you’re dying for:

  • 5.9-liter twin-turbo V8
  • 1,350 horsepower
  • 1,280 lb-ft of torque

Check out just how mean the SSC Tutara looks (and sounds,) right here. Enjoy.
