“Tonight Show” host Jay Leno already has a plan B for when Jimmy Fallon takes over in 2014. Leno’s got his very own web series, which will keep him hosting things until he decides to be done. In “Jay Leno’s Garage,” the “Tonight Show” host drives around in all kinds of fancy cars. The latest episode is the coolest, as he gets to drive a Batmobile. That’s right, Leno takes a spin in Batman’s Tumbler from the “Dark Knight” trilogy.
Is there a better car to take for a test drive than Batman’s? Probably not, but Leno doesn’t end there. He also talks to the a special effects team member from the movie, along with a Warner Bros. transportation worker about the car’s construction and what it can do.
Christopher Nolan made sure the Tumbler could actually do the things is does in the movie, down to shooting fire out the back and making some big jumps. If you ever wanted to get up close and personal with the Batmobile, this might be the only chance.
It’s also a weird little insight into what Jay’s life in his personal life. His hair’s a bit messy and the denim never ends. The cheesy jokes are still there, though.
