When a world-famous car-loving, car-collecting comedian takes the time to visit your factory, you of course roll out a grand welcome and use what footage you have to thumb your nose at your competitors.
MBUSA’s release of this clip shows Jay Leno hopping off a private plane and being greeted by the AMG CEO himself. Taking to a track that he saw only in pictures in his youth, Jay Leno gets advice from Mercedes driver and ambassador David Coulthard who tells Jay to just basically “trust the car”. The final part of the video shows Jay helping out with assembling an AMG engine. One doesn’t know if Robert the technician is a really serious guy who’s serious about his work or he’s just apprehensive that Jay will screw up his handcrafted engine.
Being the comedian that he is, Jay must have wreaked havoc on the work atmosphere during his tour of the facilities.
