I used to think Bill Gates used to drive around in a Volvo. Never knew he had it in him to hustle a 959.

Bill Gates used to drive Porsches etc but he got too many speeding tickets so he moved to Merc diesels. Apparently his cars were a ess, he use to chuck emty carttons etc in the back. Nowadays, I beleive he uses a Lexus

These were fired in by )Jay Leno Himself( in one of his rapid fire speeches, so i dont think so, you can argue on the source S350.

Jay Kay also owned an Elise at some point. Nick Mason owns an Enzo, it was the one that TG tested.

Jay Leno also has a special dragster constructed. The heart come from a tank of some sort, and it has, believe it or perish, a 37.4 litre engine. (Don't flame me, I read this!)

A Fiat Ulleyses people carrier, I think he has a Ferrari tucked in his garage also. Some of these racing drivers drive pretty boring cars - at one time, they all drove AMG MErcs as Merc gave big discounts to them
