2011 BMW M3 enters Jay Leno’s garage

Celebrity car man Jay Leno has just welcomed a new automobile into his ever expanding garage. So what is the latest beast? It’s a bright red 2011 BMW M3. As per usual, the late-night comedian takes a good walk around the M3 in his garage before it looks like he’s going to take it for a spin, but then the video varies from Leno’s usual style.

The keys to the high-spec Bimmer are handed over to race car driver Justin Bell, and he takes it and meets up with American BMW Motorsport Manager Martin Birkmann and driver Bill Auberlen to compare the road-going M3 with the machines BMW campaigns in the American LeMans Series. The motorsport crew does its best to explain why the race cars and the road cars aren’t as different as one might initially think.

Eventually, Leno gets his turn behind the wheel, and… well you’ll have to watch the video below for the verdict.
