Being Jay Leno has its perks. Aside from having the kind of cash and car collection every petrolhead dreams of, his ties with NBC have netted him some seat time behind the wheel of the new Mustang 500KR known as KITT. Not only does the late-night talk show host get to pull a few e-brake turns in a commercial neighborhood outside his world-famous garage (it's good to be the King), he gets to pilot the remote-controlled version of the black steed, albeit briefly, from a fixed steering wheel and pedal setup. According to the designer of the system, KITT can be driven from up to a mile away using the remote controls – something that's pegged our hoon-meter in the red.
